How come in the full version of this video he dropped out because he wasn't happy with the direction of the Computer Science Program, but in this one it is because he wasn't happy with where his student loans were going to end up?Which one is it Scott?

Can you stop giving me your ads? You have de-motivated me to learn code. I've been getting ONLY your ads for the past month on youtube and I absolutely loathe them.

Oh such an honor _, but I have no interest in spending money on learning how to code. If I want to, I could go to my high school for lessons, they have plenty of tutors and resources for me. Thanks for the help

I think you fit Treehouse's paying customer profile or something and therefore they're willing to spend a lot of money to acquire you as one. Try this: support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en

Hi Treehouse, I'm looking for a remote position majoring in WordPress. I'm able to commit full-time learning. Do you guys think thatTreehouse's course is good enough for such that position?

I love Scott's story. He is why I joined Treehouse and I already have a passion for front-end developing! I am planning to make a portfolio once I finish the track and hopefully will land me that career!

Treehouse thanks for the clarification. I appreciate that. I'm on udacity right now. I've read as well as heard much positive talks about you guys. So my next platform to learn coding + web dev is certainly treehouse.
