Investment by Microsoft. They shall reap the benefits in 5 years time come …Investment by Microsoft. They shall reap the benefits in 5 years time come renewal. Legendary move


I don't think it's about making money at renewal, but more about pushing adoption of Azure over AWS. One of the big hurdles that MS face is that there are a lot more AWS developers/architects out there, which is a big factor in deciding which cloud platform to go to. If Microsoft can build an army of developers with Azure skills then that helps them.

As some one who uses Pluralsight, works in Azure and has used their training material for it, these courses are OK to give a background and probably a decent overview of how Azure hangs together.

However, a lot of it is out of date and has details that are missing or wrong (not unusual for MS courses, I'm sure a lot of people will have experienced themselves), and with something like Azure where things are added, changed or removed frequently, sometimes on a daily basis, you might struggle to apply what is in the material to real life use.

Fantastic, time to start learning!
Great, thanks for sharing
Amaizing, thank you!
Wouldn't this expire after the free month is over?

Was thinking the same. Free at one end, but not both. Probably worth the investment though

Your email is already associated with a Pluralsight account.

Once you've created your password (via the email you're sent). Login and go to: app.pluralsight.com/id/…unt

You should see a sub-menu called 'Subscription & Billing', found my sub in there
Great stuff. Thank you @waleedexe
So without a pluralsight subscription this wont work right?
Heat!!
Excellent. Thanks OP!!
I've never really like Pluralsight content. usually it is not structured and it's all over the place. but free.. I can't complain. CBT nuggets is what you want though. a bit pricey. but definitely worth while.
JUST REGISTER AND CHECK IN THE ACCOUNT SUBSCRIPTION ... IT WIL BE UPDATED TO 2025 ... BUT ITS LIMITED ...

You need to create a free Pluralsight account if you haven’t already done so. No paid subscription is required in order to sign up for this Microsoft Azure deal.
@waleedexe

Thanks for sharing this deal.

Where are you seeing it is only for a month ? The OP says 5 years ?
I can confirm, as have others, that it is for five years.

He's referring to the free April that Pluralsight offered and the question being whether this Azure subscription would only work if you have a full account. It seems you don't, so all good

hotukdeals.com/dea…625
signed up for the free april and mine shows as expiring on may 2nd. never mind
This may be good. You still need a learning lab to practice and spin up free Azure instances.

Even though I have Linuxacademy I have added this.
Can grab all these videos using youtube-dl so you still have them after your Pluralsight trial expires
Thanks OP

Where are 'Subscriptions'?
EDIT: Never mind, found it.
Edited by: "Blasphemous" 28th Apr
Only free because hardly anyone is using their platform so they’re desperate for customers
I think investing your time on AWS will be way more worthy.
Heat!
Do you need any prior knowledge to IT to learn this? How easy it is to learn for a novice?
