I am back with 7th episode of Uncut & Unedited. This time my guest is Aaron Skonnard, Co-founder of Pluralsight. Aaron was here in Bangalore to attend Great Indian Developer Summit or GIDS during April 16 timeframe and i was lucky enough to get his 10 minutes for the show. Lets know something about Pluralsight and Aaron.
The Pluralsight story:
A few developers got together to solve a problem. It was one of those problems where you just can’t find any answers on the web. They solved their problem, but the solution was more about the questions than the answers.
The solution became a training company. A company created by developers, specifically for developers.
A company that offers solutions to problems, keeps up with groundbreaking trends, and inspires developers to achieve excellence. A company that speaks the language of developers and offers better insight into this fast-paced industry.
The solution is Pluralsight.
