Hey! This review is going to be different from the rest. Instead of talking about one online course or tutorial, Lee Hughes has been generous enough to give a more broad comparison between the Treehouse and Udemy learning platforms.
The last few years have seen a huge increase in people wanting to teach themselves to code. As you can view below in Google Trends data, it really took off around 2012.
Jennifer Wong started out her career as a civil engineer. But things were slow paced, and not too exciting. Like many of us, it wasn’t the career she thought it would be. After seeing a friend work with CSS, Jenn decided to take a HTML/CSS class. And, as the story goes, the rest is history.
Jenn never had “formal” training. Instead, she attended workshops, took part in hackathons, and dove into self-learning.
In today’s world businesses that offer one-on-one assistance are growing. We want services that are fast, efficient and still have a personal touch. This trend can be seen in a range of industries and, naturally, it has spread to the programming space with platforms like Codementor.
