General Discussion

Is full-stack Treehouse enough to land a job in tech?

I fancy learning in Treehouse, it's fun and it feels like picking up methods for developing quite good stuff. Yet my question of the day is, if I, let's say, quite religiously (read: 100% on all tests in my power + bonus assignments) do full Web Design track, Front End track, Python + Django (could be either upcoming course or from from other tutorials / books). Plus, of course, also do bonus courses and practice and cook up, deploy a few sites. Plus maybe Photoshop training and some training with algorithm-solving.

Do the experts here consider it could be enough to land a more or less real job as a web developer?

P.s. I have some experience doing online freelance projects as a programmer, but I've never had a "real" job as a programmer :P
