Treehouse: Business and Education with Ryan Carson
Business and Philosophy
The ability to create software is a superpower. But software education is not evenly distributed. Ryan Carson started Treehouse to provide a high quality education system for anyone to learn how to build software. On a previous episode, Ryan and I discussed the field of programming education. Ryan returns to the show for a conversation about building Treehouse, and the company’s expansion from an online programming school to a platform for technology apprenticeship. Thousands of people learn to program on Treehouse. Ryan’s goal is to connect those new programmers to companies where they can learn to apply those software skills to working at a technology company. Treehouse’s apprenticeship program is used by Airbnb, Adobe, Mailchimp, and others. By combining an online education platform with an apprenticeship program, Treehouse has created a business model that could allow it to grow significantly bigger even in an atmosphere where learning to program has been commodified to a large extent. The economic model of Treehouse contrasts with in-person bootcamps such as Hack Reactor and online income sharing platforms such as Lambda School. It was a great conversation about modern technology, the future of education, and the strategy of building a successful business.

Ryan Carson, CEO of Treehouse, on building a diverse tech talent pipeline
Here She Is - Full female potential
A while ago, we from 'Here She Is' realized that in order to move the needle on diversity and inclusion, we have to get men on the table. Today we are honored to say: Here HE is: Ryan Carson. Ryan is the Co-Founder of Treehouse, which he founded together with his wife to bridge the tech talent gap with diverse talent and open the door to a successful career for thousands. In 2016 he signed the Diversity Pledge and in the process realized that his company was ‘majority white male’. Today he helps other companies gain a strategic advantage through building diverse tech talent from the ground.Listen to a conversation about the privileges of a white, able-bodied, tall, male born in times of peace, how to acquire a mentor through a streamlined sales process, why you should embrace sales from day one and why hard skills are way overrated in the workplace.
