Just for some fun and learning, let’s dive a little bit into each of them as much we can.

Pluralsight

Pluralsight is an online learning platform to learn a lot of technical and some business and management things. Some ways to get free courses on Pluralsight

I learn something on Pluralsight at least every other day. And being a Skill Assessment Author (May-July 2019), I can verify the level of hard work that goes into making quality content.

Microsoft Learn

This is the ALL-IN-ONE learning portal for Microsoft tools and tech. It keeps getting updates every single a day. It teaches skills from zero skill to industry expert level. It’s a whole new approach to learning. I have personally used this and I certify it 200%. Start learning at https://docs.microsoft.com/learn

Cloud Society

At Microsoft Cloud Society, you learn to become a cloud hero for free. With curated learning paths, you can decide what learning you want and become an expert in it. Get started at https://aka.ms/cloudsociety

Packt

Packt has a ton of books and video learning resources for beginners and experts. I have known Packt since 2016 or so. And last year, I started reviewing courses for them and yes, I verify Packt also for learning. Get started on Packt at https://packtpub.com

Cloud Academy

As companies continue to digitally transform, there’s need to grow skills. Cloud Academy is the enterprise training platform for cloud. They have a personal and enterprise subscription plan that can be leveraged. Start at https://cloudacademy.com
