Code Conquest Newsletter #4
Mar 13, 2013

Interested in making an iPhone app? A coding club at an Illinois high school, led by 15-year-old Ethan Eirinberg, is learning to do exactly that. The Chicago Tribune reports that the club was inspired by apps like Snapchat and Instagram and has over 30 members.

To learn how to make apps, Eirinberg tried enlisting the help of books, but finding them too dry, he quickly switched to web resources. He jumped from website to website before settling on the online coding school Treehouse, and its “Build an iPhone App” video training.

The coding club’s advisor, Tesa Edwards, says this about Treehouse:

“It’s exciting because each student can study at their own pace. If they need to, they go back and study a video again until they get it.”

We’re not surprised they settled on Treehouse after trying a number of other websites. Having used both Treehouse and competing websites, we can confidently say Treehouse blows the competition out of the water.
