Time to start thinking PluralSight

For those who missed the news TrainSignal has been acquired by PluralSight who are also in the business of web delivered training. It seems to me that this sort of online training as a service is going to be a big part of keeping yourself skilled in the future. Part of the reason is that the cost is low enough that the serious IT professional will pay for it themselves rather than fight for training budget. The other part is that getting trainers and students together in a room for a specific course is a colossal scheduling undertaking and cost.

This week TrainSignal produced a nice infographic of virtualization training. My takeaway was that I want to learn more about Hyper-V and XenDesktop if I can find some time to watch those courses as well as finally watch Chris Wahl’s vCloud Director course.

Disclosure: TrainSignal are a sponsor of ProfessionalVMware.com and the vBrownBag TechTalks at VMworld USA, however they don’t even know I’m writing this blog post.
