If you have been following my blog or me on twitter you might have noticed that I am a big fan of Pluralsight! This summer I got to meet the Pluralsight team and many of the authors, and they did an interview with me where I got the opportunity tell the world how much the tutorials have helped me as a developer. I know that many developers really love Pluralsight and a study group would be appreciated. So after a bit of planning I have now started Sweden Pluralsight Study Group, inspired by the New York group that did the same thing earlier this summer. Dotnet Mentor will host the meetings/workshops here and provide food and drinks during the meet ups.
Lifelong learning is something I am very passionate about, and we need good tools and great people. With up to date tutorials by very skilled developers in a social and inspiring setting I hope that the members of this group can learn new things, make new friends,- and keep that inner fire for programming burning.
We will meet up every Monday, 17:30 to 20:30 starting Sept. 3rd and start by having something to eat and drink, before indulging in a one hour tutorial. After mingle and a group discussion we divide us in smaller groups and together try out what we just learned, – whilst keeping the discussion going. There won’t be any experts there, or any lectures. I’ll just function as the organizer/ group leader for the group and make sure everybody has what they need, and be the go to person in RE to the meet ups.
