Simple function for adding certificates to linkedin?

I'd really like to share my treehouse achievements across other platforms, can the treehouse team develop a simple function for sharing tracks that I have completed? Or if I finished an entire area, a certificate showing that?

Agreed, this would be a great feature. It would also further establish Treehouse as a legit learning tool if people post to their LinkedIn, or social websites.

I personally list my completion of the Front-end Web Development track on my LinkedIn, and as I complete more tracks, I'll list them too. My feeling is: why not? I definitely learned more from it than I would've if I had gotten a certificate in web development from a community college.

If a perspective employer asked for evidence that I completed the track, I would log into my Treehouse account and show my progress to them. I definitely understand what you're saying, in terms of wanting a more concrete way of proving your accomplishment. The difficulty with that is that a lot of web development teaching websites have taken flack for offering certificates that actually don't prove too much, while Treehouse has so, so much information and practice to offer. Perhaps Treehouse wants to avoid being tossed into that category.

It would be cool if someone who works at Treehouse posted some thoughts on this matter! I love this website.

if I pay 250$ then in return atleast i wanted some proof i.e, certificates if i know before when i paid i never paid to teamtreehouse. Provide Certificate Team TreeHouse
