Treehouse Goes iPad

Programming training service Treehouse recently released an iPad app. The app allows you to watch training videos, practice writing code and take quizzes – just like you can online. All areas of the training library are available in the app, with the exception of Android development for obvious reasons.

Quotation of the Week

“CoffeeScript reinvents the wheel. There’s no doubt about that. However, it reinvents the wheel, and then turns it into a rhinestoned, bedazzled, sparkly wheel. CoffeeScript is a beautiful wheel indeed.”
