New Treehouse Library
Today, we're releasing big changes to Library! This new design features different sections to help you get to the content you're looking for, faster. We're going to be continuing to iterate on this design with different sections to make sure the content displayed is most relevant to you, so please note that this is the first step in making Library that much easier to use.
Please post here if you have comments, concerns, or questions. Thanks, as always, for being a Treehouse student.
Great update! So organized and easy to find content!
Nice, I have found it a little harder to find the content I wanted. Hopefully this update improves the experience :-P
This is a great update. I remember sending an email to support about how much memory library used when trying to browse, so this is great.
Looking great! I especially like how easy it is now to look for upcoming courses. I like to know what I can look forward to and that was a bit of a hassle before :)
I would rather the topics be positioned more near the top. The larger cards do use quite a bit of space.
Disclamer: Have no idea how to add images, this is a test. If this doesn't work, here is the direct link: http://i61.tinypic.com/vdlc1i.png
Oh, that is beautiful. I have a question, how could you take a snapshot to this very long web page? When I ever try to git snapshot , it just gives me an image of my screen width and height.

This does look very nice & organized--- except for one rather significant issue. On my laptop screen, it only shows two of the big boxes in a line, then the third one shows up underneath the other two, with a big empty space next to it. I know that a lot of people have massively huge screens these days, but some of us are still working on 1280 screens. Please scale the boxes!
Tyson Rosage thiiiiiiis is fantaaaaastic. That's so freaking weird too because not two days ago I went to the library once again to look for something and I was just flabbergasted...
I says to myself... I says...
"Why do they have it like this? I know you can click on the little button in the corner of the course that shows the category and then that takes you to the category page but jeeez... why not have a visible shortlist of all the categories?? Has NO ONE complained about this? *sigh* ... actually, someone probably has many many times and they're probably working on it so just go about your business, Huck -- I'm sure it'll be here soon."
And lo and behold!
You guys never disappoint, I'll tell ya...
Awesome job and thanks!
This is great. It got me thinking that it would be awesome for you guys to post a blog article about what your UX process looks like and what the thinking that went behind these changes was like. Not very long ago I read a similar article that gave me a huge insight onto what a good redesign thought-process looked like that helped me a ton I've been curious to see someone else's take on it. Just a suggestion!

That really looks great! :D It was a good change in the library view... Keep going with it and thank you for think in the user experience...
Cool Updates waiting for completion certifications!
Looks great! keep up the good work team!!
great update.. looks awesome...
I love the update.
I have one cool suggestion tho. It would be great if you list the recent course i have started so i can pick up where i left off. As of now, i have to dig down to find the most recent course i have taken ....i hope you would implement that soon and improve UX...
More scaling (and number of columns) options please!!!!
The Wikipedia page for "thumbnail" says:
Thumbnails are reduced-size versions of pictures, used to help in recognizing and organizing them, serving the same role for images as a normal text index does for words. In the age of digital images, visual search engines and image-organizing programs normally use thumbnails, as do most modern operating systems or desktop environments..
I also think their should be an option to "thumbnail" (shrink to the absolute minimum size) the course boxes.
In Photoshop, shrinking/resizing an image is done via something called bicubic resampling.
I know you guys are eager to show off your clean edge svg vector graphics and css styling, but please...
Also --I'm going to bring up again (because no one at Treehouse listened last time) ======> the need for collapsible sections.
There are many many ways to have such sections (Jquery accordians, collapsible CSS trickery, even HTML5 details and summary elements (twisty triangles):
Some other links:
..and so on, and so on, and so on..
There will NEVER be a screen with infinite pixels or infinite resolution, so please use pixels WISELY!
I am not sure if only some users had the update enabled, but if not, I am not sure why I cannot view it.
Hmm, I'll tinker around a bit.
Very nice :) , Great update :))

The update is very nice. It would be nice to see a section in the library for tracks/courses/workshops etc that are older and outdated. Just so users know the information there has changed or is not 100% up todate. Also so users can go back and review, or even get some of the history of how things have developed over time, through older classes.
