Is teamtreehouse the right place for a seasoned developer?

Hi all, I'm a developer with ~10 years of experience in different fields. I'm always looking for some way to improve myself and I'm currently interested in backend topics (Java/tomcat/spring).

I'm on the 7 days trial and I'll try to see if I can find here some interesting content but I would also listen your experience.

I have been a developer for a long log time and I am in treehouse. Here is why:

  • I don't know every language out there. But workwise, I have gone from BASIC to FORTRAN to C/C++ to VB to NET (C#/VB NET) to JAVA (Spring and its derivatives), ORACLE, MS Server; and also throw VBSCRIPT/ACCESS ... in the mix.

  • Today ... it is imperative to know other new stuff ... for example ... Docker, Java Functional Programming ... Java 9 already in. Thymeleaf, AngularJS(unfortunately, treehouse is weak on this one), Reaact, Vue ... full stack / node ... and tons more available on treehouse.

  • So I always find something new to learn at Treehouse.

plus ... the teaching style is good.

and as a bonus the price is not too bad .

think of it as a learning journey ... it a hobby for me. I like answering student questions as well.

Thanks, @ markmneimneh, I probably need to find the right course. The Java one took 20 minutes to explain to how print an hello world :)
