The Best Online Training is now Free or $500 off from PluralSight

In an announcement that I just received from INETA, PluralSight On Demand training is now free to INETA user group leaders, $500 less for all INETA user group members, and a one month free pass to User Group members that are currently unemployed.

Are you active in your local INETA user group community? If you’re not – you should be.

I have subscribed to the On Demand Training for almost 5 months now, and I love it, here’s why. There is simply too many technologies to be good at all of them. With PluralSight On Demand, you can spend a few hours in front of a really nice Silverlight player, and get your foot in the door to most of the Microsoft Technologies. Since my membership started, they have updated several courses, as well as added courses around VSTS and MVC. I love love love love this online training – I really can’t say enough great things about it.

Lastly is a free 1 month offer to anyone that is an INETA user group member, and is currently unemployed. WOW – talk about giving back to the community – and at the right time. You’re out of a job, and want to sharpen you MS Stack Skills. This is the plan for you.

Here is a copy/paste of the INETA announcement. Check with your local user group leader to see if you qualify.

  • Tier 1: Group Leaders receive a free 1-year subscription to Pluralsight On-Demand!. On-Demand! is a great resource for Group Leaders to improve their .NET skills and enhance their presentations. Group leaders can offer the group member subscription discount and the unemployed member free pass, outlined further below. Our purpose is to empower the group leaders and provide them with a resource to not only improve individual .NET skills, but help build the relationship among the user group and create a common synergy. To get started, they simply send an email from the web page listed and they will be provided an INETA Group Leader “kit” with the scoop – details at:
  • Tier 2: User Group Members receive a $500 discount off of the 1-year Pluralsight On-Demand! subscription. This is a grass roots effort to contribute to the success of the .NET User Group community by providing high quality Pluralsight On-Demand! training opportunities. Group members can access the discount by reaching out to Pluralsight directly, existing relationships with Pluralsight and their instructors, contacting their Group Leaders, seeing the promotions in the INETA newsletters, blogs, tweets, and other viral channels.
  • Tier 3: Unemployed Group Members receive a free 1-month pass to Pluralsight On-Demand!. This tier, as mentioned above, gives the Group Leader an opportunity to provide an unemployed group member with an opportunity to sharpen their skills and ramp up Microsoft technologies. In the past month, we’ve already heard about (2) instances where developers became employed after using Pluralsight On-Demand! training. We require the Group Leader to introduce Pluralsight to the unemployed member for validation and to endorse the core mission of INETA and .NET user groups – to provide structured, educational support to the growing worldwide community of Microsoft .NET developers. After the 1-month pass, unemployed Group Members can purchase the Pluralsight On-Demand! subscription with the $500 discount.
