Technically I’m an out-of-school youth, less than a dozen courses away from my degree. Good thing with today’s technology wherever you are , whatever you do, as long as you have access to the internet, learning opportunities are endless. And that’s what I thank Team Treehouse for.
Treehouse International Scholarship
I stumbled upon this post on my Facebook dashboard about Treehouse and gave it a try. A few days after that I received an email granting me two-year Gold account scholarship on their site, which was such a blessing! Since Treehouse is a paid service ($9/month for students, $25/month non-student silver, $49/month non-student gold — click here for subscription plans), the scholarship saved me as much as $1,176 —
enough to pay my student loan and get me back to college.
Treehouse In a Nutshell
So far I have finished the Social Media and Search Engine Optimization tracks since that’s where my work currently revolves around. You can see my badges on the lower right side of this site 🙂
I’ve been active on retweeting content as well as joining their giveaways where I won an additional month on top of my scholarship as well as a copy of their CSS3 Foundations book.
This comprehensive guide will introduce the basics and foundations of cascading style sheets (CSS), including how to structure with CSS, use CSS syntax, how to manipulate text, and visual formatting. It also covers the box model, how to animate page elements, cross-browser compatibility, and more.

I emailed back Faye and asked if I could run a giveaway on my blog and she was generous to give me a copy of the HTML5 Foundations as well!

@lozadaOmr, I would love to have both books but since I can only choose one. I’ll choose HTML5. Why? Because ever since I attend JFFC, I was amazed that all I knew about HTMl, is rapidly changing. (like there are better tags, obsolete tags etc. 🙂 )
I would like to have booth books because i’m a beginner in learning these topics and it would really help me in my studies 🙂
Treehouse is awesome. Here’s hoping I score some free books!
Oops, it’d help if I read instructions.
@craigjennings11, I’d choose CSS3 Foundations because I’m really interested in learning the power of CSS3 animations, transitions, transformations and more!

I would like the CSS3 and HTML5 books but if only one I think I’d rather the CSS3 book. The CSS syntax gets wild with teh more advanced functions. It would be great if i had the perfect manual at my side at all times. I hope i win!
Thanks for joining Jean Joseph! Programming is easier with a handy guide wherever you go! Good luck! ♥
Peter James Escobar
HTML5 cause I’m more familiar of it!
