Treehouse videos are edited so you don't have to sit there while they type their code. The videos are usually sped up, and sometimes just edited to skip over the teachers' typing entirely, and teachers also usually have their code typed out in another window, so they can just copy and paste. Practice, and you'll eventually be able to type really fast. I learned how to type properly in 4th grade, and I've spent the vast majority of my days since then (I graduated high school 2 months ago) in front of a computer, and now I max out around 120 words per minute
