Many people ask me what resources I recommend for becoming a web designer, web developer or just for learning WordPress. I used to recommend books, websites and other resources, but nowadays I just point them in the direction of Treehouse. Seriously, they’re awesome.
You’ll find great video content, projects and quizzes to evaluate your knowledge. You’ll also be able to watch interviews with established people in the industry, and the interface is just gorgeous. You can either study individual topics such as PHP, HTML or CSS, or else dive into a learning adventure to cover all the material needed to become a web designer, web developer, or WordPress guru.
Here’s what Gabriella (one of our new members on the WP Mayor team) had to say about learning with Team Treehouse:
“In order to further my knowledge in web design, I ventured out into the land of the web to find the best online school which offers great videos and tutorials. Treehouse is by far one of the most advanced and professional websites out there which offer various challenges varying from ‘Building a Simple Website’ to ‘iOS Development’ and much more.
I took on the challenge to design a website using the easy-to-learn video tutorials offered by Treehouse and I must say that I have not regretted it one bit! The videos are simple and fun, while the tests and quizzes offered by Treehouse keep you in line. I am currently taking on my next challenge – learning PHP! I am so excited to be introduced into this new world of web design and I can’t wait to use my newly acquired knowledge in my final aim – creating my own themes!
Thank you Treehouse for the excellent videos and keep up the good work!”
