It’s been a big week for the Pluralsight community. Yesterday we announced that we’ve acquired Digital-Tutors, the premier online training company for today’s tech-oriented creative professionals! But even with all the celebrating, we were still able to keep our course production on schedule. Check out all the fresh courses we’ve released in the past week.
It’s been an exciting day for us. This morning we announced our acquisition of Digital-Tutors, which means our training library has doubled and now includes 3,000 courses! Combining forces with Digital-Tutors has been our biggest move to date, and we’re so grateful for how our community has reacted to the news. Here’s some of the news coverage and a few favorite tweets about the Pluralsight and Digital-Tutors announcement.
Day two of the Microsoft Build conference started with a keynote that was all about Azure and how Microsoft is reaching out with their online services to platforms beyond Windows. Throughout the presentations, there were as many as 44 different announcements of either new Azure features or features previously in beta being made generally available. Let’s go through some of the notable topics that were covered.
This year’s Build conference is a more intimate affair with fewer sessions, a much smaller overall conference space and approximately 5,000 attendees. Today’s keynote had several important announcements and demos along with the usual gaffes that accompany launch events. But perhaps the most popular topics today were the in-depth view of Cortana, and the announcement that the Windows operating system would be free on devices with screens smaller than nine inches.
Uncooperative mice, computers gone haywire, screensaver switcheroo. Yes, it’s that time of the year again: April Fools’ Day.

Do you know why we call the great minds behind our courses “authors,” instead of “instructors”? It’s not just because it has a nicer sound to it. It’s because a fundamental differentiator of our training compared to many of our competitors is that we only work with the industry’s absolute best to author our courses, [...]
Which tech leaders do you look up to? Everyone has someone who inspires them, and at Pluralsight, we’re no different. In fact, we’re collectively inspired by so many people that we thought we’d make a fun tournament out of it!
We released some pretty big courses week including the much anticipated web security and OWASP big picture course from Troy Hunt and a course on React from Liam McLennan.

Hey, everyone! We hope you’ve had a great week. Our new releases this time around include a nice mix of IT pro and developer content, from security administration to SharePoint to C. And we even have two new authors: Alan Smith and Bobby Meador. Be sure to give them a warm welcome.
Our newest iOS player is now on the the iOS App Store and includes a first shot at ChromeCast support! Start playing any Pluralsight course and tap the cast button to select a local device to cast to. Not familiar with ChromeCast? It’s a $35.00 dongle that you plug into an HDMI port on your TV so that you can “cast” video to it over a local wireless network.
To celebrate how amazing our support staff is, we’re giving you the opportunity to tell us your Pluralsight support story! Tell us a time when you contacted support and were truly pleased with your experience and you’ll be entered to win a free month of training!
The final day of our annual Author Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah was spent exploring ideas using Open Space Technology. There were so many great ideas to talk about that many of us wished we could clone ourselves and attend every session!
Day two of our annual Author Summit was a knowledge and fun-filled day. We kicked things off with a keynote from CEO Aaron Skonnard, followed by great sessions led by some of our top authors. We rounded out the afternoon with a series of lightning talks and closed out the evening with several rounds of hysterical presentation karaoke.
Our authors are our most important asset, and without them, Pluralsight wouldn’t exist. This weekend, nearly 100 of our authors from all around the world are gathering in Salt Lake City for our second annual Author Summit.
We hope you’ve had a great week so far! We’re busy in Salt Lake City preparing to kick off our annual Author Summit, so be sure to stay tuned to the blog and social media for exciting updates from the event! In the meantime, you should definitely check out the great courses we’ve released this past week, including the XenDesktop series from Elias Khnaser.
Last month a federal appeals court ruled that the FCC did not have the authority to enforce rules created in 2010 that ensure service providers can’t discriminate against any legal web site or online content. The flip side of this rule is that they also can’t play favorites in returns for buckets of money from content and web providers. These rules, referred to as the “Open Internet” rules were intended to be an effort to keep the Internet a level playing ground for innovation but internet service providers like Verizon felt these rules unfairly kept them from making money from their own products.
Ever wonder what Pluralsight is all about? Quite simply, we exist to democratize professional technology training, and we are here to help you become the best tech pro you can be.
