Top Five Courses I'd Like to See on Treehouse
I love Treehouse's approach to learning. The largest gap in their offerings, to me, is courses aimed at teaching you how to do real work--in other words, courses that bridge the gap between "here's how to create and use arrays" and "here are arrays being used in the real world, and how you might be expected to use/see them".
Lynda.com has a great-looking new course called "Web Project Workflows with Gulp.js, Git, and Browserify". That's exactly what I want to learn--real-world workflows where I can apply the piecemeal learning I've gotten at Treehouse.
- Workflows (see above). Both front and back end.
- "Portfolio building" projects. Practical, meaningful projects you can build and customize that are good demos of your capabilities to employers/clients.
- Real World Project Overviews. A walkthrough--with video and demos--of making a real-world project. How was it built? What tools did we use? What were the high-level steps? A typical day? And so on. Done by industry pros, if possible.
- More real-world "getting into web development" help. Like the current crop of "bootcamps", I'd love to see more resources for transitioning/breaking into becoming a web developer. Portfolio reviews by people who hire? Top 10 Things I Look For When Hiring Web Developers? Webinars with companies hiring web devs? A more formal connection between industry and Treehouse.

There are already a few projects/courses that might offer what you are looking for
Treehouse has a frameworks basics course that covers bootstrap and foundation
"Portfolio building" projects. Practical, meaningful projects you can build and customize that are good demos of your capabilities to employers/clients.
The first html project is a simple portfolio, it might be a bit simplistic but its a start

On the Workflows front that sounds like a pretty good for Treehouse Workshops.
absolutely agree with #1 and #4
