Chances are, you're spending a lot more time at home than you would regularly right now.

You don't even need to put a credit card on file so there's no risk with trying it out.

Access to Pluralsight's Skills platform normally costs around $30 per month, so this limited-time offer is not something to be missed. The sooner you get signed up, the sooner you can begin learning. You'll have unlimited access until the end of April, then it's up to you if you want to sign up for longer.

Your Skills platform access allows you to peruse the entire content library of over 7,000 video courses and make use of guided learning paths showing you what courses wil further your knowledge in a particular area. You can also curate your own learning by combining different courses to meet your own goals.

Altogether, Pluralsight is an excellent resource just waiting to be mined by the enquiring mind.
