TrainSignal joins forces with Pluralsight to bring you more trainingBy Scott Skinger
Since TrainSignal began more than 10 years ago, we’ve remained committed to providing the best IT training for our customers. When we switched from a DVD model to a subscription service earlier this year, we knew we were going to change the way IT pros train forever, providing them with the flexibility to access our courses anytime, anywhere. On the developer side, we found a partner in Pluralsight, who’s equally devoted to helping people get the skills they need to succeed on the job and beyond.
Today we’re excited to announce that Pluralsight has acquired TrainSignal. That means in addition to getting all the training on Cisco, VMware, Microsoft and more you’ve come to love, you’ll also have access to Pluralsight’s comprehensive developer training. In all, you can expect more than 1,000 courses once our two libraries are combined over the next few months. And the best part? You’ll get it all at the same affordable price.
Pluralsight CEO Aaron Skonnard had this to share on the company’s blog:
With the shift to cloud computing, more and more, developers are asked to cozy up to IT topics like virtualization, scripting, networking, and security. In similar fashion, IT pros now seem more interested than ever in picking up dev skills.
As the notion of “devops” continues to gain momentum throughout the industry, the timing of this shift couldn’t be better – we can now address the complete crossover in learning needs.
Now, let’s be clear on one thing: this doesn’t mean we’re the big-box store of tech training. We are still, first and foremost, the go-to source for serious, hardcore professionals. That’s why we’ve been careful to bring on companies that care just as much about high-quality instruction as we do. No matter your specialty, you can trust Pluralsight to get the industry’s best training from the world’s leading authorities.
I’m thrilled to join forces with Pluralsight, a company I’ve long admired. You’ll now have access to the best practical IT and developer training from leading industry experts all in one place. We’re excited about this new chapter, and we hope you are too! Questions or comments? Please feel free to share them with me below.
