Pluralsight Live 2017

PluralsightI know everyone is still gaining strength after VMworld US and rooting for VMworld Europe, but here is another conference which came to my attention. When I get asked about online training on VMware and AWS, Pluralsight is one of my main choices. Great trainers, great content, good platform (both desktop and mobile), not too pricey.

Pluralsight Live 2017 will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, between 19 and 21 September. Pluralsight made available their “Top 10 Reasons”, I will not go that route. I will just list the speakers that caught my attention, there is little merit in saying why you should listen to them:

  • Michelle Obama, former First Lady
  • Joel Spolsky, CEO @Stack Overflow
  • Tim Campos, Founder of Pulsra and former CIO @Facebook
  • Steve Young, co-founder @HGCC and former NFL MVP
  • Hadi Partovi, CEO
  • Scott Guthrie, EVP @Microsoft Cloud
  • Brad Rencher, EVP @Adobe
