Jason Alba - Pluralsight Jibber Jobber, Author and more

Last year I wrote a review of Pluralsight and as much as I love learning new technology this past year and especially the past few months my focus has been on non-technical skills. One of the authors I was most impressed with was Jason Alba. Jason seems to create about one new course a month for Pluralsight, he is the creator and founder of and the author of a number of books.

I am very impressed with Jason's presenting style. He is engaging, entertaining and honest. His courses are great. I have listened to all of his current offering at least once and a number of them more than once. Currently he has 26 courses available on Pluralsight:

Jason's courses range from 1 hour 8 minutes to 2 hours 47 minute currently. He teaches on a wide range of skills and competencies that will help you grow, but not just in your abilities at work these skills can transfer to all areas of your life.

And one of the greatest things is that if you are not a Pluralsight subscriber you can get free trial subscription currently up to 10 days or 200 minutes of learning. And all of Jason's courses come in under that 200 minute mark. But I will warn you once you start learning with Jason or Pluralsight you won't want to stop you might become hooked and want a subscription so you can continue your learning. You have nothing to lose just go to Pluralsight click on Sign Up and choose the free trial option. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
