Treehouse - HTML5 Resource of the Day

Brent Schooley / Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Video training is highly effective when the quality of the content is excellent and the information is reinforced through both challenges and achievements. Whether you’re looking to learn more about web development or design or maybe even mobile development, Treehouse has you covered. Let’s take a look at the offering.

Treehouse - A better way to learn technology

Treehouse bills itself as “a better way to learn technology”. After a brief look through the courses offered, I have to agree. The video content here is top-notch and the challenges and achievements keep things interesting. One additional thing I like about Treehouse is that they provide full text transcripts for each video as well as extra credit and teacher’s notes. It really is a great way to learn.

Here is a sample screenshot of the video content:

Finally, here’s a sample course schedule:



I think Treehouse is a wonderful way to learn new material and they have a great selection of courses available. I would definitely recommend checking out the trial.
