It’s been a while since I posted an update about my Pluralsight course development, but I am please to say that the course is now complete and has passed all of the peer review and audio/visual review stages. The course now goes off to be encoded into the right format and enters the release queue.
The course will be released on Friday 28th November.
It has been a lot of hard work but I have really enjoyed the process and feel honoured to be a part of the Plurasight family. They are a great company to work for. My first course is called “Developer to Manager” and it is a course that helps developers decide whether going into a team leadership or management role is the right decision for them.
The course is based off an article I wrote earlier this year called Transition from Developer to Manager. This has been the single most popular article on this blog a lot of my articles have been very popular. I frequently receive emails from people asking advice on moving into a supervisor / leading role, so I hope this course will help everyone who watches it.
The course will start off by covering what a typical supervisor / management role looks like and its aim is to set the listeners expectations about the role to help them make an informed decision. The course then goes on to help the listener come up with a 90 day plan to help them make a real impact in the role if they choose to make the leap.
The structure of the course is as follows:
Module 1 : Introduction
Module 2 : What Does it Mean to be a Manager?
Module 3 : Your Team
Module 4 : Your First Month
Module 5 : Your Second Month
Module 6 : Your Third Month
The course running time is around 2 and 3/4 hours, so it is small enough to be easily digestible and long enough that it is packed with useful content. I will post the demo clip as soon as the course goes live.
I am now planning my next course, but for my next trick I have a book manuscript to finish off. More on that soon…
