Treehouse NewsIntroducing Treehouse Life Styles


writes on April 1, 2012

Hello, Friends! I’m here to give you an update and talk to you about something very important. As you all know, we at Team Treehouse have been producing videos over on Treehouse Island to help you learn web design, web development, and iOS programming. We’ve received incredibly valuable feedback from you regarding these topics. One thing that most of you have expressed is a desire for more.  Here are a few of the different pieces of constructive criticism that we’ve received since our landing here at Treehouse Island:

“I need to learn basic life skills in addition to web design.” – Bradley Donovich

“If only Treehouse would give me tips on how to do regular, every day things instead of just tell me how to make web sites.” – Sean Raptor

“I wish Treehouse could help me apply stylesheets to my own life.” – Kim Jones

“I already have a high paying web development job but I’d subscribe to Treehouse if they helped me to become a functioning member of society.” – Frank Smith

Well, Frank, and the millions like you, today that that day.
