MSDN Now Includes Pluralsight Courses

In November of 2014, Microsoft announced that subscribers will receive a 12-month Pluralsight training benefit as part of its MSDN subscription. So if your New Year’s resolution was to update/enhance your development skills, this offer can help.

The number of courses included in this benefit depend on the type of MSDN subscription. As an example, my particular subscription includes 30 courses as shown below.

This set of course includes three of mine, as indicated above and described below.

Mastering Visual Studio 2013 focuses on the new features added to 2013 including Peek Definition, the enhanced scroll bar, Navigate To improvements, XAML editing enhancements, and CodeLen. This course is great if you are already using Visual Studio and want an update on the latest tools and editing features VS 2013 provides.

Visual Studio Data Tools for Developers is all about using SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) in Visual Studio. This course is for you if you use SQL Server and Visual Studio and want to learn how to build database projects, check in database scripts, and easily deploy database changes using SSDT.

Defensive Coding in C# is for C# developers that want to write clean, maintainable, and testable code … and keep that code great even in the face of changing requirements, multiple developers, and the passing of time.

To activate your benefit:

  1. Log into your MSDN account.
  2. Select to activate your Pluralsight benefit:

Enjoy!

    Activating the Pluralsight benefit from MSDN doesn’t seem to work. It shows a broken page on the Pluralsight website.

      Hmmm. I just tried it and it seemed to work. Could you try again?
