If you want to learn how to design websites and develop apps in the shortest amount of time...
...without spending a hell of a lot of money or pulling out massive loans that’ll take you the rest of your career to pay back...
Then you should take this Sumo’s advice and take notes.
You see, this Sumo HATES watching video tutorials.
“But Sumoooooo! Video is all the rage these days! Everyone loves learning from videos!”
Pipe down Sumo-ling! And let me explain...
The reason I hate watching video tutorials is because they’re usually booooooring, don’t come with any usable worksheets to apply what I’ve learned, and if I have any problems figuring something out, there usually isn’t someone to help check my work.
Right right right, I know. I could just ask around, and the web is so helpful with all these questions and answers you can find right at your fingertips...
But that’s extra work man! I just want to learn, not learn to research an answer!
That’s why I started giggling like a pretty little school girl on the first day of Sumo School when I heard about Treehouse.
They’re an online educator on all things web. From building websites, learning design, programming for smart phones, and even starting a business.
Treehouse has taken the sometimes painful ways of learning web development and has for once...actually made it extremely fun.
It’s true! I was really skeptical at first when I saw the deal, but after taking a few of the classes...well...I’m hooked.
For the first time ever, I actually felt like I was learning something. Like the lessons were sticking themselves with a neuro-epoxy, ensuring that I would never, ever, forget what I’ve learned.
That, and the Treehouse team have some light-hearted videos, to which I am surprised to say...are actually entertaining and make the whole process of learning web development a joy.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again...
This Sumo is HORRIBLE at coding. Anything. Seriously.
But this deal from Treehouse just might change all of that. I actually want to develop my own website from scratch this time around instead of spending hours searching for a template.
Luckily the Treehouse library doesn’t just focus on simple web design. It’s a FULL library to learn EVERYTHING you would need to build the valuable skills that are in demand in this “Knowledge Workers” age.
You can learn things like:
Learn how to design and build a website that works on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.
Learn how to program web applications using the Ruby language and the Ruby on Rails framework
Learn how to start a company with an introduction to basic business concepts, including marketing, finance, and accounting
iOS Development with iPhone and iPad apps using Xcode and Objective-C
Build an Android Crystal Ball App - By the end, students should know how to build a simple app with touch and motion events, and animations.
And they’re ALWAYS adding and changing content to keep up with the latest trends. They have an insane team of 55 members who are constantly creating new videos, worksheets, and supporting materials along with world class support for any questions you might have.
You’ll always be in the know with Treehouse.
Oh and before I close this...
Part of the reason Treehouse really hooked me is that after you watch each video, you’re presented with quizzes and code challenges where you can actually execute on what you just learned.
Huzzah! Exactly what I was looking for!
So if you’re an absolute newbie at coding, just out of college, looking for a change in careers, or you’re like me and have tried a gazillion different courses with no luck, then this will be exactly what you’ve been looking for as well.
Normally you would have to pay a monthly subscription for access to this huge library which is $25/month for the Silver Plan and $49/month for the Gold...
...but when this Sumo see’s something that he really REALLY wants...well there’s just no escaping my hunger for fine taco’s and smashing the hell out of prices.
So we took the Gold plan which includes:
...and giving you a full year’s access, which would normally cost you $588 for ONLY $299!
But you better hurry up and get this deal TODAY before time runs out Sumo-ling!

P.S. - The Treehouse team went through great lengths creating these highly educational web design videos. They even went as far as including Closed captioning on all videos for non-English speakers, the deaf or for those who prefer watching videos in silence.
That and making sure to update interviews with industry pros, Q&A with their teachers and much more.
