General Discussion

Are you planning to make a courses about Algorithms, Compilers, Distributed Systems or any "non-trivial" CS topics?

I think that Team Treehouse is a great place to learn about new technologies but I would like to see more in-depth content. The topic aforementioned are crucial to anyone who is serious about getting a job in the software industry and I would be very glad to see you tackling those "advanced" subjects.

At the moment Treehouses focus seems to be web technologies and the fastest ways to get up and running as a full developer. I believed these topics will be addressed soon based on the new Java track. I would love some more software related courses but I believe the topics taugh here are far from 'trivial'.


I didn't mean to offend, of course they are not easy but they are "higher-level". It was a poor choice of words on my part, sorry.

I assumed that was what you meant haha. I simply didn't want anyone to think what they were learning was not computer science. Sadly in my experience there seems to be a stigma that HTML, CSS, and many other aspects of web design/development are not real "Computer Science". They most certainly are and it was this I intended to correct even if it is not what you meant.

I would love to see courses on the things you mentioned. I have tried to learn about them on my own but there doesn't seem to be one strong central resource for all of them. I would love to see Treehouse fill this void.

Goodluck! --Ricky
