I did my initial treehouse review during my quest for searching for good online courses. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I could eat everything at a very low monthly subscription.
You can learn all its courses by enrolling into its monthly subscription. It is oriented towards developers. It could be a good fit for you if you are into coding or are looking to make a career in programming.
I don’t want to get biased by my initial impression or by Treehouse’s low price. I have written this article after careful examination and analysis. I have evaluated and appraised its features to give my final assessment.
You will find a critical review of the Treehouse platform in this article. You will get to know about its courses, tech-degree, quality, pricing, support, and many other parameters that make an online platform worthy.
Treehouse Review And Critical Analysis
What Is TreeHouse
The treehouse was founded by Ryan Carson in 2011. Treehouse works on a mission which has been stated below: –
Treehouse brings affordable technology education to people everywhere in order to help them achieve their dreams and change the world.
Treehouse has 1000+ videos on its platform. There are also 37,000+ paying members as of now.
Treehouse has made its focus on “coding”. It is just like heaven for most of the coders. Treehouse has a vast library in the field of “Programming”.
Treehouse offers a wide range of courses. Treehouse offers the course on 23 topics. There is more than 300+ treehouse course available on its platform.
Some of the lists of treehouse course are as below: –
• Development Tools
Because of all the above categories, treehouse course has been designed into so-called “Tracks”. A track is the predefined sequences of topic training. You will be taken from beginner to advance through this track.
You just need to follow this track to get into the depth of any course learning. Following this track will take you to bit-by-bit learning of any course.
Treehouse has completed a partnership with some of the leading companies in the world. These partnerships with companies have helped Treehouse to advance their learnings.

With the help of these companies, they have really pushed themselves to the next level.
But you may, “what benefits I will get from these partnerships?”
Well, you can get a ton of benefits from these partnerships.
These are the leading cooperates in their industry. They have really pushed the TeamHouse to a completely next level.
The lessons from these cooperate are great at learning. They are just unbeatable. They also provide quality & in-depth content.
You can have a look here.
Team Treehouse comes with “learning tracks” for their learners.
You may ask. “what do you mean by learning tracks”?
So, learning tracks is a dedicated path for learning any program.
If you want to learn anything, say Web Development, then Team Treehouse will guide your which program who should choose. It is the step-by-step process through which you will be taken from the beginner level to advance level in that course.
The platform will tell you which lesson you should take after the previous one.
This unique feature could be a great add-on to your learning. This learning path ensures that you don’t have to wander aimlessly.
You can just go, choose any course & you are good to go. You don’t have to worry about which course you have to choose.
Team Treehouse has a large No. of Guest Teacher & Full-time teacher.
You might think about what is the difference between a Guest Teacher & Full-time teacher.
Guest Teachers, as the name suggests, are the teachers which have fewer courses on the platform. They are less active on the platform. Though they fill the little gap that could be created by Full-time teachers.
While on the other hand, full-time teachers have a vast majority of courses on the platform. They are very much active on the platform. They form the major portion of course on this platform.
These teachers or instructors ensure high-quality content for the treehouse.
You can also check the bio of the instructor by clicking on the name of the author. You will get to know all the courses developed by the teachers on this platform.
As you can see in the above picture, the list of all the courses produced by a teacher.

Positive things first
Treehouse has tons of Pros or Positive things. Here, is the list of all of them: –
• Increase your expertise with projects
• Get Predefined Learning – Tracks
• Students Resource – Get to know about Github & slack, etc.
• Cost – Pricing for every need
• Single Niche – that is Coding
• Get your project reviewed by experts
2. Cons –
As all things can’t be perfect in the world
• Only For Coders – This is the USP of the treehouse. This is also a drawback of this. If you are not into programming languages than it is not for you at all.
• Some Courses are in development – some of the courses on this platform are totally in the development phase. They are working on it to improve them. Hope, they can do it at earliest.
Treehouse is one of the best platforms for coders. It is very good if you want to learn to code. You can just get ready from beginner to an entry-level job in the span of just 3-12 months. This is very useful tools if you could use it to an optimum level.
