How To Make A Website: DONE!

Today I finished the first course in the Web Design track, “How To Make A Website.”
The site included 3 pages, including a faux portfolio of design work. It was pretty fun to make and got me kind of excited for the rest of the courses in the track.

I’m still in the 2 week free trial period, but, so far, I feel pretty good about my choice in signing up with Treehouse. It has a nice balance of video tutorials, hands-on practice, and quizzing. The videos aren’t too fast or too slow (there’s even a playback speed control), the activities reinforce what was in the videos and the work you did following along with them, and the quizzes
I also really like the badges. Seeing the achievement badges pop up at the end of each section makes it feel more like a game. All of the points you get add up and show up on your profile page as a visual of how much you’re learning. My profile is all HTML and CSS right now, but that’ll change pretty soon when I move forward in the track and onto JavaScript.
One course down, 10 to go!
