Down at DevWeek 2013, I was given a card for one month on Pluralsight; they do video courses for all manner of programming and technology courses.
I activated it this weekend, and drank from the firehose. I’ve gone through several courses in a really short time. In that time, I’ve also been able to cut some working code in the new tech, and shore up some existing knowledge. Here’s what I’ve figured out;
- Sometimes, video is much faster to absorb than books. If you learn that way, give them a look.
- The courses are comprehensive. By that I mean that I feel more ‘armed’ than than the ‘thirty minutes of tutorials and short how-to videos’ approach to learning. In that, they are like a book.
I’ve stuck in my credit card details because I think I’m going to benefit greatly.
I know this is a terribly positive review. I’m not affiliated in any way. 🙂
