Ashley, Danielle, Joe, and Scott.
[MUSIC] 0:00 One of my favorite parts of being a developer is being able to create 0:06 something that didn't exist before that makes the world a better place. 0:09 >> I finished the front-end track within six weeks, and 0:13 within one week of finishing it, I got a job. 0:18 >> I had plateaued at my previous job, and I was looking for something different. 0:22 And Treehouse was able to come in and save the day for me. 0:27 >> I started doing an hour a day. 0:32 It made me a better resource for my teammates, 0:34 it made me able to better do my job. 0:36 There have been times where I've learned something in Treehouse, and 0:38 that day I've come across a situation where that knowledge was put into use. 0:41 >> I was always really interested in technology as a kid. 0:46 When I got to college, I didn't study computer science because I kind of 0:49 had this preconceived notion that you had to be a math genius. 0:52 That's what I really liked about Treehouse is that they approached it 0:55 from the perspective that you could start, really, from ground zero and 0:58 become a productive developer. 1:00 >> I was immediately hooked. 1:02 The technologies front-end web developers use, this is what you should know. 1:03 >> When I initially started with Treehouse, 1:08 I didn't have any experience with code. 1:10 And slowly but surely, I began building websites and I had a portfolio. 1:13 So now whenever I apply for jobs, I can say, hey, look, this is what I've done. 1:17 I don't have a four year degree, but I learned this at Treehouse in a year. 1:21 So imagine what I can do for you in a year. 1:25 I used Treehouse to learn how to code and it changed my life. 1:28 [MUSIC] 1:31 >> Technology is evolving. 1:33 Languages are evolving constantly. 1:35 And to stay abreast of that, I use Treehouse. 1:37 >> It's less about this is how you write code, and 1:41 it's more about this is how you think about problems. 1:43 >> After studying on Treehouse for about six months I was able to transition from 1:47 a project manager role into a full-time web developer role. 1:51 >> Learning at Treehouse wasn't just about jump-starting my career, 1:54 it was about starting my life. 2:00 [MUSIC] 2:02
