Last November, Treehouse showed its ambitious goal - to teach everyone about writing code and design for Web, iOS and Android. Combining the best of and Codecademy, the Treehouse team uses high-quality video, testing, off-site game training techniques and project-oriented training to teach you how to design, even if the greatest of the “Luddites” in the world.

Due to the rapid growth of its subscriber base and revenue, last month Treehouse allocated $ 3 million to train 2,500 students.

The Treehouse Scholarship Program has offered 2,500 free “Gold” student accounts in the US over the past two years. To participate, you had to be able to prove that you are actually a college student, for example, by having an email address in the .edu zone.

Was the scholarship program successful?

Treehouse founder and CEO Ryan Carson said he was shocked by the positive reviews and the ensuing flurry of comments on the announcement on his blog and on Twitter. Students “were very happy about the emergence of an optimal (and fun) way to gain knowledge that would allow them to easily find work in the future.”

Carson says there are many representations from colleges and universities in the USA that provide students with scholarship programs, such as UC Berkeley, Colgate, UPenn, Michigan, MIT, NYU, Stanford, Harvard, Duke and others. And at the same time, Treehouse gained a lot of interest in the program, and, thus, the company was forced to abandon student enrollment. But since the program was designed only for US students, Treehouse decided to reconsider their position and enter the international level and, in addition, double the size of scholarships.

Yesterday, on a company’s blog , Treehouse officially announced “Round 2,” saying that demand was so strong that they now offer 5,000 Gold accounts for two years.

This time, the study is open to students from all over the world and for any age, as long as you are a student or graduated last year (and you are not a student of the current Treehouse).
