Pluralsight Expands into Open Source with Acquisition of PeepCodeBy Aaron Skonnard
Time for some good news and bad news. First, the bad: You just lost your best excuse for not knowing Ruby.
The good news? We just acquired PeepCode!
Over the next few months, we’ll be putting the finishing touches on our acquisition of PeepCode’s fantastic content. That means soon you’ll automatically have access to nearly 100 new open-source titles within the Pluralsight library, at no additional cost to you as a subscriber. Likewise, customers over at PeepCode will soon get access to all of our good stuff. For the time being, both sites will keep humming along, as is, while we work through the integration details — but stay tuned.
To sweeten the deal, we’re also happy to announce that PeepCode founder Geoffrey Grosenbach will now head up Pluralsight’s open-source division. Geoffrey is the brains behind the PeepCode outfit and he’ll bring with him dozens of experts from the open source community.
In other words, once you get through those first 100 courses, there will be plenty more where that came from. If you’re an open source expert and you’d like to contribute, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply get in touch with Geoffrey directly.
This is a real game-changer for us. It’s evidence of our commitment to open source developers and our passion to serve the entire software development community. If you haven’t figured it out already, we mean business when it comes to providing the world’s best professional training for software developers everywhere. We’re ecstatic to welcome Geoffrey and the open source community to the Pluralsight family.
If you have any questions about what this means to you or your business, don’t hesitate to contact your Pluralsight learning advisor or drop us a note.
