Every week, new content is published to the growing Treehouse Library! Here is a short list of what was added the week of July 20, 2015.


Swift Delegates – Pasan Premaratne
Delegation is a design pattern that enables a class or structure to hand off, or delegate, some of its responsibilities to another object. In this course, we look at how we can use the delegate pattern in our code to avoid tight coupling as well as how it is used throughout Cocoa Touch.

Custom Menu Development in WordPress  – Zac Gordon
WordPress allows for easy and powerful customization of menus from the admin area using the Menu options page. However, sometimes you need to go above and beyond what is available by default. In this course we show how to customize how menu’s output on the frontend of the site using the Walker class. We also show how to add custom menu fields to the admin area.

Django BasicsKenneth Love
[This course was published earlier in July, but missed the announcement!]
When it comes to Python web frameworks, the elephant (pony?) in the room is Django. Let’s explore this framework and build the prototype of an e-learning site. We’ll look into Django’s admin, ORM, migrations, and template system. In the end, you’ll have a project you can use to explore even more of the Django world.


Ruby EnumerableJason Seifer
In this workshop, we’ll learn all about the Ruby Enumerable module and see different examples of how it works.

iOS Submitting to the Apple App Store Gabe Nadel
Learn how to take an iOS app from your local machine to the App Store. Explore the requirements, processes and best practices for getting your app approved and ready for sale.

Getting Started with TypeScript Andrew Chalkley
Andrew Chalkley shows you how to get up and running with TypeScript, an enhanced version of JavsScript that provides static typing, classes and interfaces. TypeScript compiles to regular JavaScript code so you can write TypeScript code that works in every common JavaScript environment such as browsers and Node.js.s.
