The following video is a review of the Team Tree House Tech Degree Program.
You can sign-up to your 7 day free trial by clicking here.
All right everybody.
So today I’m going to be doing a review of the Team Treehouse tech degree program and I did do a review of Treehouse a while back, probably about six or seven months ago and I just reviewed the basic and pro plan.
And quite a while ago Treehouse actually released a tech degree program and I’m actually enrolled in it myself. Here I’m just on the landing page for Team Treehouse. They do offer a seven day free trial for their program and stuff like that. But first I’m going to actually find the tech degree page and for some reason they don’t have it on their homepage here so I’m gonna actually just go into Google really quickly and find the actual landing page for the tech degree program. And I do believe it’s this one right here.
But let’s take a quick peek at the projects and I think these projects are kinda designed as a way to showcase your skills and build your portfolio. So all the stuff you’re building here throughout the program you can kind of add to our professional portfolio at the end. And it’s cool that they have these projects because learning from building and practicing is the best way to learn about development.
And again like I said I’m enrolled in this one myself and it’s really high quality stuff. Like if you took this course you could easily learn everything you need to know in order to get a job or start your career in web development no problem. You can see even these individual courses are like 16 hours, 32 hours. All these instructors. And here’s the price right here. $199 a month. And that does sound like a lot. But theoretically let’s say you went through the course at like four to five months. That might be like a $1000 or so but that’s a heck of a lot cheaper than going to school.
And I actually believe because this tech degree is completely focused on web development and in a specific type of development you will learn a heck of a lot more than you would for example if you went to school for three years and you’d get it done in half the time. So again if we click on the free trial thing you can sign up, you can select your plan and they won’t charge you until the end of the seven day free trial. So if you guys want you can sign up and just before the seventh day, like on the sixth or the fifth day if you’re not digging it, if you’re not liking it, just cancel it and you won’t have to pay nothing. And that’s what I did myself when I first tested it but I’m actually enrolled in the program. I did deactivate my account as I don’t use Treehouse as much anymore but I think I just have the pro plan. I switched to the pro plan. But again the tech degree plan is definitely worth it.
And this is the dashboard of my account when I’m signed into my tech degree. Again my things on pause but here’s the different units, here’s what it looks like, all the different activities and stuff. And you can skip ahead, like you don’t have to do them in series. Obviously you kind of want to do them the way they’re designed to do but if you want to skip ahead, if you want to just check it out, you can always do that. And here’s an example of a project you can do. Again I can’t really see it because my account isn’t activated but it’s pretty cool. A lot of good stuff in here.
And I’m just going to go into my account settings here, check my enrollment. And if the tech degree program is not for you guys there’s also a basic and a pro program of 25 and $50. You notice that my tech degree is $99 a month and that’s because I have an old account and I signed up when it was in kind of beta. So the prices were a little bit cheaper and I still have that price point. Unfortunately anybody who’s new is going to pay $199 a month. But I mean again you guys can just pick the basic and pro plan which is $25 or $50 a month which again is well worth the price.
The tech degree program will give you a little bit more encouragement. There’s the projects like I said. And you can see the differences here, actually we’ll go through these. With the tech degree you get a portfolio you get to build. It’s actually graded by people so people actually will review your code when you submit your projects. One on one video mentoring sessions with Treehouse members, a step by step guided curriculum, exclusive access to the slack channel. A final exam to test and verify your knowledge, certificate video downloads. Conference videos and bonus content and then the rest here you can just get on all the plans.
So again if you’re really serious about coding or web development and you need a little bit of a kick in the butt and you want to kind of have someone to help you and hold your hand which I highly recommend if you are serious about web development, the new tech degree program might be for you. Nonetheless I do think that the basic program is good for everybody because I mean the quality of content and what you can learn with Treehouse for only $25 a month is honestly a steal of a deal.
Because remember when you enroll you get access to everything. So it’s not like you’re paying $25 for a course, you’re paying $25 a month for all the courses so it’s just something to think about.
But anyways I just wanted to make this quick video because I actually had a few my students and a few people who watched my previous Team Treehouse review video ask me if I’d recommend their tech degree program and my final opinion is yes I do highly recommend it for anybody who’s serious about making a career out of web development or web design and just working online with building websites or apps. So again let me let me know what you guys think of the Treehouse if you are a student. You know if you’re interested in signing up, you have any questions just put them in the comments section of this video and thanks for watching.
