Great news from our new sponsor Pluralsight Hardcore Developer Training! (Free video training for all of us!)

Hello everyone,

I have great news to share!

Our first group sponsor, Pluralsight, offers fantastic streaming video training. As a community group leader, I've been authorized by them directly to show these videos FREEat meetings of our group.

And, I have two other great offers from Pluralsight:

  • I have 25 1-month-free subscriptions that I can raffle off at meetups to members of this group.

  • Pluralsight will offer a free 1-month subscription to any unemployed members of our group

Pluralsight also invites you to subscribe to their newsletter at­.

As an example, watch their "Building ASP.NET MVC 3 Applications" for free at­ on the left side "Essential Videos" section.

I've just taken a new full-time position to work on a high-profile system and am under direction to think "long-term" about the system architecture and surrounding development practices. Consequently, I am going to be looking to study many of these topics in great depth.

So, I'd love to share this great material that Pluralsight has authorized me to share with others in this group.

Here is the full list of their courses:­

I'm most interested, at this time, to watch either the MVC 3 courses, or the "Principles of Object Oriented Design" and "Test First Development 1 and 2". These are a total of about 9 hours of content which we could cover over 3 to 4 events probably to avoid burnout. The TDD Part 2 course also covers BDD with Gherkin, SpecFlow, and StoryQ -- a recent topic of interest from our members.

If anyone else is interested, Please Let Me Know.

But, also send me your "top 3" prefered courses (or a total of 10 hours max) and best nights / times for meeting. I will see how many people share similar interests, and will be more than willing to prioritize the most popular ones toward the front.

When we do meet, I'll raffle off a few of the free 1-month memberships as well!

Here are some more example courses:
