It has been a while since I wrote anything about my new Pluralsight course that I am authoring, and someone asked me the other day how it was getting on, so I thought I would post an update. Things have been a little slow since I signed my authoring agreement. I signed the contract the day before I went on holiday for 2 weeks. Then when I got back I wrote my course proposal and got it signed off by a Content VP at Pluralsight. After that, I was away for another week before I properly met my new editor.

I have now met my Editor, done my training and have started producing the slides and material for the first module. Tonight I recorded the intro module for the course, edited it in Camtasia, and rendered a version ready to submit for my AV inspection. I am now full flow in producing the slides for the first course module.

As you can see from the picture above, my first course is called “Developer to Manager” and it is a course that helps developers choose whether going into a leadership role is right for them. The course also presents a 90 day transition plan to help people that have decided to make the move into management. This course is loosely based off of an article I wrote on the same subject earlier in the year, which has been a very popular article on this blog.

This is the start of the production journey for this course. It will be a lot of work, but I am looking forward to getting stuck in. I am aiming to try and get the course completed and submitted for the end of October.
