Ashley Boucher needs to teach more Python courses!

Ashley Boucher is an awesome python teacher. I hope she gets to teach more courses in the future.

Is it only me who doesn't like Ashley's courses? Or at least the content of the courses is too basic and shallow? Kenneth Love please come back :)

After the recent staff changes, I think you can count on seeing a lot more from her!

UPDATE: This prediction was premature, see further comments below.

So would I be right in assuming we won't be seeing much more from Kenneth Love if anything?

Unfortunately, Kenneth left Treehouse September 2017. I would not expect further content from him.

As Chris mentioned, you're not likely to see any more teaching from Kenneth. But he tweets frequently.
He has numerous fans among the forum community.

Yeah I have found some of his other materials, think i will be finishing all python content on here in the next couple of weeks and then not sure what i will be doing, he taught so well and without him I definitely wouldn't study computer science, he is incredible at teaching this stuff in an understandable manner.

And to keep the thread up to date, Ashley left Treehouse in July 2019 for another company.

Oops, I guess my prediction was a bit premature. So how many teachers are on staff now?

What about Craig? Has he left? Hopefully not

Craig moved on in 2018, to Twillo, if I recall correctly.

Agree, much better than Kenneth. Also more professional. When seeing a course from Kenneth I feel like I am in Kindergarden. Grown men don't want to build rpg games. Being on point and professional is what we need more.

I like the games, except (yatzee), I never played that game growing up, and learning it felt like a dreadful task that I did not feel interested in.

Well I haven't heard, seen, observed any kid at CDprojekt or at Santa Monica studios or at Konami or at EA or at Capcom or at Kojima production or at ANY professional game development industry where there are "Grown men don't want to build rpg games"

Well if you think "Kenneth makes you feel like walking through Kindergarden" I think you have the potential of being the next Elon Musk truly. :)
