A little review of my Treehouse coding experience a week in.
I have always been interested in learning how to code so it has been great to find this resource. Initially I just took it to learn Front End Web Development but upon finding out what else they offer, I really couldn’t be more excited.
MOBILE APPS!! I’m talking to you, my main love in design and one day I will code you!
So i’ve been using Treehouse for just over a week now and I have to admit it is pretty cool. I first took Digital Literacy with Joy, my awesome video mentor who actually made what would ordinarily be quite dull into something rather fun and engaging. Here’s a screenshot of one of Joy’s videos and a little look at Treehouse’s interface:
So far I’ve really enjoyed the Treehouse teaching methods:
Watch a video or two for understanding, do a short quiz and then use what you’ve learnt in a task (using Workspace, their text editor).
Anyway… I do love the interface. So easy to navigate and find exactly what you’re looking for. It’s also quite encouraging, I especially like the time estimate. I mean when I see only “13 mins” I think wow, that’s totally doable right now! Also if you’ve forgotten to visit in a few days, they send you an email with a link to where you’ve left off, it definitely helps keep you on track. Also check out some of my badges:
