Treehouse Free

My new sponsor, Treehouse, is a web-based learning site that uses high quality video tutorials to teach you a new programming language, a new business strategy, and even place you in a job after you've graduated.  Treehouse's learning path is great because they fill the gap between a year or two in school (which seasoned developers of other languages don't need) and venturing in the jungle of Google-search-to-find-a-hopefully-good-written-tutorial.  For a developer like myself, Treehouse is the best way to quickly learn the dev environment, basic tips to coding in said language, and how to become a pro in a given language, like iOS development (which I don't know).  I'll let Treehouse describe themselves:

As part of their sponsorship of this blog, Treehouse is offering a month of learning for free.  Do yourself a favor and make the best of this offer.  Their library current includes web development (CSS, JavaScript, HTML5, PhotoShop), server side development (PHP, Ruby on Rails), mobile development (iOS, Android), and more.  Go get started!
