Free coding classes, thanks to Treehouse and the Library



Treehouse, the most excellent online platform that offers informative videos to learn iPhone and Android app development, website building, business building and coding skills (like Ruby on Rails), has partnered with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library to share its monthly service (usually $9-$25) to citizens with a library card, free.

A bold move in very much the right direction for the library and the tech startup, the service began yesterday.

You can click here to visit the Library's login page to get access.

For those looking for more details before signing up, here are some of the things you can learn using Treehouse.

This is an excellent opportunity to get out and learn something, even if you never leave your home. There is no age restriction, no cost, no fees. It's there when you're ready to learn.

Zero, zilch, none and no part of this post is sponsored by any of the above mentioned company or companies, nor would I ever present such a thing.
