A Techdegree on Treehouse is a more intensive, structured, and interactive course designed to prepare you for a specific job track in the industry. You get a lot of extra support compared to the normal tracks - such as code reviews and online "office hours", access to a student community, and portfolio building.

Techdegrees start from the ground up and require no previous coding experience. You do not need to complete any Treehouse tracks or courses to prepare for starting the Techdegree program. In fact, I would recommend against it since you'd likely cover some of the same material.

I would take a look at the Techdegree Page for more information, or to start a free trial.

In the Techdegree, you get all the same content that you would in a track, but with a structured series of projects that are graded, the opportunity to review other people's code, a dedicated team of staff that help you and the other students through the course, and an easy mode of communication with them and the other students going through the Techdegree, too. It's meant to be something you can come into without prior knowledge, so I'd go for it before you go through any tracks, if that's what you wanna do
