Looking to use the lockdown to train for a different career if possible



My advice is, know exactly what technologies you want to learn & then use plural to choose the tech because there's too many videos and you'll lose your main goal
I actually work at Pluralsight, and I'm glad this has been posted!

Two tips for anyone looking to take advantage of Free April:

1. Edit your interests under profile. This will allow the AI/ML on the platform to send relevant content.
2. Take a Skill IQ for the technologies/subjects you are interested in. You can find these under "Paths". This will create a customised path based on your skills gaps.
Penetration Testing. Well I'm sure there'll be a lot of that going on during the pandemic..

Now this is an excellent deal. Fantastic videos from people who don’t struggle with English as an additional language. The individuals that do these videos actually know what they’re talking about.
incredible deal! I've been using this for the past few months provided to me by my company and can totally recommend it! really great instructors and well laid out modules within each course
Great find OP!
Hot!
This is a great deal.
Has anyone seen any OSCP training going for free?

I went to do there Android one but because as it's a few years old I can't follow it as it uses an older SDK which has been changed.

Which Android one, there’s literally hundreds. I thought their Kotlin videos were all fairly recent.

It was Android Apps with Kotlin: Build Your First App released June 2018 so it's not that old. After the installation of the SDK the trainer is going through a few things but the layout has slightly changed in the SDK. When he selects text or the button, I couldn't do the same. Would it be worth downloading an old Android SDK to attempt to do it? I did see somebody mention in the comments that they were also stuck but that was months ago and maybe with an version of the software that related more to the version used in the video.

Good deal, thanks
Any of these suitable for a 13 Yr old kid?
Just something to keep him occupied

Yes. Get him on one of the 'paths'. Find one he's interested in, but Python wouldn't be a bad start.
ooo this seems good
Has anyone seen SPSS courses?

Second that, Python is a great one to get them started on.

I have just lost my job and hopefully some of these courses can add to my knowledge,
What are the average times to complete 1 of the courses?

Brilliant. Thanks OP. Just in time to study for certification.

What you going for? I have so many interests I find it hard to stick with one. I wanted to do the Android/Kotlin one but if uses an old SDK where I don't think I'll be able to follow along. Then I was going to do the Kotlin course but than it said you need to know Java.... talk about going down a wormhole lol

Lol...yeah it’s actually a bit difficult to choose one and then not get distracted to another.
I am going for azure development, It’s been long pending for me now and I need to learn it if I want to keep myself updated in this fast changing technical world.

I think the reason it says you should know Java is that is because it’s the core language that people learn nowadays rather than C or C++. It gives you an understanding of object oriented programming that you can apply to anything. If you don’t code then I’d recommend starting with Java or Python. There are a lot of courses out there that give you the grounding to then look to something else

A lot of kotlin courses are aimed at cross-training existing android developers...who write java.

For somebody like me who doesn't know Java, do you think I could jump into the Kotlin course even though it had Java as a prerequisite? I'm just starting a Java course on the site now, but interested in Android development which I beleive is moving over to Kotlin.

Great find OP, heat added!

365 Data Science are also making all of their courses completely free until 15 April 2020 due to the Coronavirus - this includes 21 courses, 100 hours of video instruction and 600+ exercises. They have high quality resources, and this is great for anyone interested in pursuing a career in data analytics, data science or machine learning. Given the time limit I’d focus on learning the two or three courses that would benefit you most.

Who doesn’t like free. 😹thanks
Got this for work, barely use it.

Sadly they don't have istqb or testing courses.

Hi,

Good tips (Excellent post OP. Voted hot).

Something i've been struggling with where learning platforms are concerned is being absolutely bogged down with so many courses to choose from. Honestly do not know where to start.

Am interested in learning something like Python because i'm under the impression that it's a useful language to learn and can run on a Raspberry Pi among other devices. However how geared up this is for newcomers to programming i've no idea nor whether there are pre-requisites that are highly recommended are covered before trying to learn this.

I've some basic HTML and CSS knowledge (very basic to be honest as i've picked up neither for so, so long now) and would like to learn programming with my 8 yr old Son using a Raspberry Pi however again feel overwhelmed and don't know what is worth learning and what is not.

Would like to be able to learn how to become as proficient as possible in using and administering Linux as well.

Any help/suggestions on what is highly recommended for newcomers to learn would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
Is this someone who isn't a computer genius and has never learned or worked in such a field can easily get to grips with ?
(I'm pretty good at just picking up a piece of tech and self teaching myself without instructions (till I get stuck)so not hopeless but titles like "Data analyst" make my head hurt
Thanks for the heads up. Now all I need to do is find the time... Any deals on free childcare? Haha
