Outgrowing treehouse - AskTreehouse

I feel like I am outgrowing treehouse and I am looking somewhere else to learn more advance programming tasks. For example, very few go pasted intermediate in terms of difficulty and it seems like every new language has the same class, methods, variables and maybe for-loops as their introduction. I was wondering does this turn anyone else off when learning new programming languages and where do you go after you learned all you want to learn from Treehouse?

I highly recommend the python course in teamtreehouse. it's probably the hardest track here.

Kenneth love is really good teacher.

I know javascript can go pretty deep. I'm doing my own things on books right now.

I agree with jason,

Instructor Love purposely goes out of his way to make his python courses some of the hardest on Treehouse.

But as far as learning more advanced/intermediate skills there is no stopping you.

The internet is the ultimate programming manual,

all you have to do is search for what you want to learn:


Here's a search term to start: MOOC (Massively Open Online Courses)

Colleges like MIT and Standford are basically putting all their computer programming courses online.

Many of them are not designed for beginners but for upper level software engineers.

There is usually a free version available (with youtube videos of the actual classes).

That being said, joining a forum and reading through all the threads can be

more enlightening than a read through any tutorial you might find online.

It's also a way to get better (more thorough/complete) answers to

intermediate/advanced coding questions then you'll get here.

I'm old school so I bring up the fact that there are still programming books published every year (if only so college professors can torture/impoverish their students by requiring them to buy them).

I know the thought of lugging around a voluminous tome of dead wood pulp is an anathema to the Millennial/Gen-Y crowd, but usually you can a pdf or ePub version available if you look around.
