If you’ve ever considered a career in the tech industry, building an app or making a website, you’ve probably wondered, how does this whole world fit together? Who does what? What kind of people and skills do I need to build an iPhone app, for example?

As co-founder of Treehouse, I’m asked questions like these regularly. So we decided to make a short video answering as many as possible. I hope that it demystifies some of the jargon for you and that you’re inspired to get started learning web technology today!

    Well I completely disagree with the negativity – this is a very clear and helpful post for someone who’s in the early stages of a career in this industry. Thank you for producing thoughtful, helpful content!

      +1 Even with few years of experience my head starts spinning with technology changing so fast. It was refreshing to watch this video because information was presented in a clear and simple manner. I enjoy most being a Front-End Developer for Web Apps but the video reminded me that I should strengthen my UI design skills if I want to be great at what I do. Appreciate tip and enjoyed the animations :) Thanks Treehouse!

      This is very clear. Leave Anthony and his negativity. It’s explaining to beginers where to go. Keep it up.

      When I’m ready I will make videos to tech in french ad work for you.
      Good job

  4. I’m not sure where you are getting your information, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
    Thanks for great information I was looking for this information for my
    mission.

  5. Another great post, seriously. The animations are very clear and professional, and i will use it to explain the web roles to some co-workers. Thank you Ryan and Treehouse team.

  6. Great post and video guys!

  7. Not sure what everyone is so upset about, this is great. I really like that you used all flat design to explain everything. This is a great start in creating a IOS App for me. Thanks for the share, great editing with the video too!

  9. I’d like to know what is the best things to learn in terms of time/effort investment to reward ratio?

    • Hi Andy,

      All of our Tracks are a great investment of your time, but as far as the highest paid positions right now, we’re seeing pretty high pay for iOS Developers.

      Cheers,
      Ryan

  10. Thanks, I learn & work alone & often lack the basic info in some areas. Your Treehouse Blog is a big help because you don’t talk to the converted in their own language & so leave the uninitiated behind
