Overall I definitely would recommend that you check out Leadpages especially if you are looking to get into marketing and building an email list. The cool thing is that if you are a web developer like I am you can also use Leadpages to build fully integrated landing pages for your clients as well. The fact that you can build a nice looking landing page in less than 30 minutes or so is very cool!
The following video is a review of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. You can grab a pair of these amazing headphones off of Amazon by clicking here.
Hey everybody. What’s up? Robin here and today I’m going to be doing a little bit of a different review for you guys today. Today I’m going to be doing a review of the very very popular headset the Audio-Technica ATH 50x, which is these guys here and I’m going to zoom in and show you guys a better view of the actual headphones themselves, but I’m just going to give you some information. My general thoughts about the headphones.
Now, this pair of headphones is really popular and they’re really popular for a good reason. They give you amazing sound quality for a really, really good price. When I was shopping for a pair of headphones about eight months ago when I bought this pair here on Amazon, I looked for some of the headphones with the best reviews and these guys right here had some of the best reviews out of everything on Amazon so I decided to check them out. I bought them for about $200 Canadian, which is probably somewhere on the lines of $150 USD or American, so depending on where you’re from, that’s the general price range you’re going to get. For most people, it’s going to be a little bit expensive. Most people are used to paying $50 for headphones, maybe $100 but these guys, they’re like that mid-range level, but the sound quality is very, very good.
Like I said, I’ve had them for about eight months now and I’ve used them quite a bit. I don’t take them outside or nothing. I use them as a desktop headphone. I usually use them with my computer, so every day or every other day kind of thing I’ll listen to them for like an hour or two with just some music and stuff like that and the quality is great. Like you can see here, they’re in perfect shape here and like I said, I can’t really recommend them enough. You’re not going to get ones for this price range that are going to sound this good, but all that considered, let’s take a closer look at the headphones and see what they actually look like.
All right, so here’s a closeup and a better look at the headphones themself. You can see here that they are very nice quality. They’re pretty solid. The little headphone pieces here can fold up. They can twist and turn, which makes them really compact. You can also adjust them to fit your head size. My head’s pretty small so I have it on almost the smallest setting, but you can open them up and make them bigger or smaller depending on how you choose. Here’s the inside of the headphones. Hopefully there’s nothing gross on them from being used and yeah, you can see the headphones fold up pretty cool so you can pack them away. It’s a little bit weird but it works out pretty good.
Here’s the output jack so you can stick your headphone jack in there and there’s a nice shot of my cat again and yeah, you can just stick it in there and that’s where you can stick the other end into your phone, your computer, your desktop, whatever you want. I don’t have the piece here as well, but it also came with an output jack for an amplifier, so if you play guitar, you can also listen to yourself playing guitar with these headphones as well.
In closing with this video, my basic recommendation is, I would highly, highly recommend this pair of headphones or any of the Audio-Technica ATH series. There’s a whole series line where there’s like the 40x, the 50x. I’m not sure what the other ones are but they’re kind of all the same, just a little bit of price range for different quality, like the 50 is the more expensive one, but I think it sounds a bit better or something like that. I don’t know, but any of those headphones in that series are going to be pretty good and they all have really good reviews and what not. This is my review.
Don’t mind the cat in the back. She’s just doing whatever she wants. I hope you guys like this video and if you guys are looking to buy this headset and you have any questions, feel free to ask me or ask for anybody else to answer. If you do have this pair of headphones, let me know what you think in the comment section of this video. I hope you guys like this review. I know it’s a little bit different than what I usually do, but I want to try doing some different reviews on different products and stuff like that since you guys seem to love my review videos, so I’m going to be doing a few more of those, but anyways, let me know what you think of the videos. Let me know what you think of this headphones here and if you have any questions please let me know in the comment section of this video.
The following is a review of the Team Treehouse Tech Degree Program.
You can sign-up to a 7 day Free Trial of the program by clicking here.
All right everybody, so today I’m going to be doing a review of the Team Treehouse Tech Degree Program. I did do a review of Treehouse awhile back, probably about six or seven months ago. I just reviewed the basic and pro plan. Quite awhile ago, Treehouse actually released a tech degree program, and I’m actually enrolled in it myself. Here I’m just on a landing page for team Treehouse. They do offer a seven day free trial for their program and stuff like that, but first I’m going to actually find the tech degree page. For some reason they don’t have it on their homepage here, so I’m going to actually just go into Google really quickly and find the actual landing page for the tech degree program.
I do believe it’s this one right here. All right, so there we go, we’re actually on the landing page for the tech degree program. All right, so it kind of gives you a free trial.
I think it’s a seven day free trial, like I said, where you don’t have to pay. These are the different tech degree programs they have. It’s a three to 12 month program depending on how fast you go through it I guess, and how disciplined you are to do the actual lectures.
There’s front end web development, Java script, and just Java web development, Python, IOS, and Android development. There’s six different one’s for now, and I’m actually enrolled in the Java script one myself.
You can see here that they have a curriculum, it helps you create a professional portfolio, and all kinds of stuff.
If we click on the learn more section here, we can actually see specifics about each tech degree program.
We can see there’s 12 projects, 24 courses, 145 quizzes, 185 challenges. Takes about three to nine months, and 174 hours. 174 hours of content and lectures, and if we expand this column we can see all of the different courses. As you can see there’s quite a bit of stuff in here. It would probably take you quite awhile to get through here. It seems like a big price, and we’ll talk about that when we go through the actual pricing later.
Let’s take a quick peek at the projects.
I think these projects are kind of designed as a way to showcase your skills and build your portfolio. All this stuff you’re building here throughout the program, you can kind of add to a professional portfolio at the end.
It’s cool that they have these projects, because learning from building and practicing is the best way to learn web development. Let’s see if we can find the actual price of the program. I’m going to go into the Java script one here, and just take a quick peek. You can see it’s quite different, the Java script one has a lot more hours, it’s 321 hours. That’s quite a bit. Again like I said, I’m enrolled in this one myself and it’s really high quality stuff. If you took this course you could easily learn everything you need to know in order to get a job, or start your career in web development no problem.
You can see even these individual courses are like 16 hours, 32 hours. All these instructors, and here’s the price right here. $199 a month. That does sound like a lot, but theoretically let’s say you went through the course at like four to five months. That might be $1,000 or so, but that’s a heck of a lot cheaper than going to school. I actually believe because this tech degree is completely focused on web development, and in a specific type of web development, you will learn a heck of a lot more than you would, for example if you went to school for three years. You’d get it done in half the time.
Again, if we click on the free trial thing you can signup, you can select your plan. They won’t charge you until the end of the seven day free trial. If you guys want, you can signup and just before the seventh day, like on the sixth or the fifth day if you’re not digging it, if you’re not liking it, just cancel it. You won’t have to pay nothing, and that’s what I did myself when I first tested it. I’m actually enrolled in the program. I did deactivate my account as I don’t use Treehouse as much anymore, but I still, I think I just have the pro plan. I switched to the pro plan. Again, the tech degree plan is definitely worth it.
This is the dashboard of my account when I’m signed into my tech degree. Again, my things on pause but here’s the different units, here’s what it looks like, the different activity and stuff. You can skip ahead, you don’t have to do them in series. Obviously you kind of want to do them the way they’re designed to do. If you want to skip ahead, if you want to just check it out, you can always do that. Here’s an example of a project you can do. Again, I can’t really see it because my account isn’t activated. It’s pretty cool, a lot of good stuff in here.
Let’s just check with a video lesson here.
This is a lesson on Java script functions. That’s pretty cool, really high quality videos again. Honestly, I kind of think this is even better than going to school because the tutorials are done really well, and it’s a fraction of the price when you really think about it. The nice thing about it, being a high price point, is that it will kind of encourage you to get through the program. I’m just going to go into my account settings here, check my enrollment. If the tech degree program is not for you guys, there’s also a basic and a pro program, sorry, of $25 to $50.
You notice that my tech degree is $99 a month, and that’s because I have an old account, and I signed up when it was in kind of beta. The prices were a little bit cheaper, and I still have that price point. Unfortunately, anybody who’s new is going to be paying $199 a month. I mean again, if you guys … You guys can just pick the basic and bro plan, which is $25 or $50 a month, which again is well worth the price. The tech degree program would give you a little bit more encouragement. There’s the projects, like I said.
You can see the differences here, actually we’ll go through these. With a tech degree you get a portfolio you get to build, it’s actually graded by people, so people actually review your code when you submit your projects. One on one video mentoring sessions with Treehouse members, a step by step guided curriculum, exclusive access to the slack channel. A final exam to test and verify your knowledge, certificate, video downloads, conference, videos and bonus content, and then the rest here you can just get on all the plans.
Again, if you’re really serious about coding or web development and you need a little bit of a kick in the butt, and you want to kind of have help, someone to help you and hold your hand, which I highly recommend if you are serious about web development. Then the tech degree program might be for you. Nonetheless, I do think that the basic program is good for everybody. I mean, the quality of content and what you could learn with Treehouse for only $25 a month is honestly a steal of a deal. Remember, when you enroll you get access to everything. It’s not like you’re paying $25 for a course, you’re paying $25 a month for all the courses. That’s just something to think about.
Anyways, I just wanted to make this quick video because I’ve actually had a few of my students, and a few people who watched my previous Team Treehouse review video ask me if I recommend their tech degree program. My final opinion is yes I do highly recommend it for anybody who’s serious about making a career out of web development, or web design, and just working online with building websites or apps. Again, let me know what you guys think of Treehouse if you are a student, if you’re interested in signing up. If you have any questions, just put them in the comments section video. Thanks for watching. If you guys want more web development tutorials, and reviews, and different things like that, please consider subscribe to my YouTube channel.

The following video is a review of the book entitled HTML and CSS – Design and Build websites. This is a very well written book by Jon Duckett. If you are interested in purchasing the book you can do so by grabbing it off Amazon by clicking here.
Hi guys, how’s it going? In this video I’m going to address two common questions that I get; the two questions that I’m going to focus on are beginning related questions. I get this asked a lot from people who are just starting out learning how to program or design websites, and that is what is the best place to start learning how to code? How do you get started with HTML or the different programming languages that there is out there?
My main piece of advice is to just take it one day at a time, because a lot of stuff you learn in programming, stuff like that; it’s not stuff that kind of just settles in and clicks in right away. It takes some time to learn and you just take it day by day. I’m actually going to give a recommendation of a great resource to get started with learning how to program websites and design websites.
The first recommendation I’m going to give you is to go on the internet, look up free tutorials, look up courses; even look for paid ones, I have paid ones myself. Just look at some very beginner ones. If you rate straight from a beginner, you know nothing, like I said focus on HTML, CSS and just go through the courses, do some practical assessments, try to build some websites yourself.
Try to build up your portfolio and just take it day by day. It really does just take practice and time, then eventually over time you’ll kind of get those aha moments and things will start to click in place. At least that’s what happened with me when I first started learning. It took me a while before things started to click in my head.
My other recommendation I’m going to give you guys is; I have a book here, it’s called “HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites.” I believe the author is John Duckett. I got this on Amazon and I got a link for it, you can take a peek at it if you want. I think I grabbed it for about $20 give or take. It’s a book about HTML and CSS and it’s a great reference for anybody getting started.
I’m going to take a quick peek here and show you what this book has to offer. As you can see the pages are really well done, the graphics are really well written. There’s a lot of text, a lot of information and reference. It shows you all the different commands in HTML, CSS, how to build layouts, responsive web design. It even has a section on CSS3 and HTML5.
There’s a lot of design theories and different things like working with images and stuff. It’s a great book, and it’s a great reference, and I highly recommend it for anybody who is just starting out with HTML or CSS.
I think together you can grab both the books for roughly about $50. They’re a great reference and I highly recommend them for everybody who’s just starting off. Again, just go online, look up tutorials and YouTube videos and stuff like that. Eventually things will just click into place. Again, check the book out, there’s a link for it in the description.
Hope you guys liked this video, hope it helped you out. You know what, just stick with it and eventually you’ll get to understand it. Before you know it, you’ll be developing websites and programming online.
Is This Book Right For You?
If you are interested in picking up this book are not quite sure whether or not its right for you then here is what I have to say about it. HTML and CSS – Design and Build Websites is geared towards those who are beginners or still need a good reference on how to build websites from scratch.
If you are still in the phase where you need a guide or are constantly looking how tutorials and guides or just can’t seem to stick it all together then this book is what I recommend. The pictures are great and the quality is very good. The book itself is a little on the expensive side but honestly for what you get its actually pretty under priced in my opinion.
Although this was only a short review I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any comments to share about the book then please do so in the comments section below!
