Technology skills platform Pluralsight is making all of its courses free to everyone this month.

“In these uncertain times where government leaders and healthcare experts are asking us to practice social distancing, Pluralsight wants to offer an incentive for technology learners to follow that advice and better themselves,” said Pluralsight CEO Aaron Skonnard.

“With this free offering, we want to encourage technology enthusiasts to stay home and improve their skills. Technology can help us build a better tomorrow when we’re able to return to normal, and we want to provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to stay safe, stay home, and skill up.”

The Pluralsight catalogue contains more than 7,000 courses taught by the world’s leading experts in their respective fields, according to the company.

Anyone wishing to take advantage of the offer can sign up here.

Pluralsight warns that processing is taking longer than expected, so there may be a delay of a few hours before confirmation emails are sent.

The company is also offering extended trial periods for businesses, nonprofits, and K-12 institutions wishing to explore Pluralsight.

Pluralsight’s library of courses covers software development, IT operations, data professional skills, and security.

That includes dozens of programming languages, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and more.

Courses are taught by recognised experts in their fields. They include authors of the definitive books on the topic, programming language innovators, and employees of the world's biggest technology vendors.

The offer lasts for the whole of April, and is without further obligation. No credit card information is needed to participate.
