New Courses at Puralsight

I have been very busy recently making new courses for Pluralsight and I am delighted to say I have just released two of them over the past week. The first course is called, Executive Briefing: State of Blockchain. This couse is a little different to the normal content on Pluralsight in that it is a short filmed course as opposed to screen casts and demos. 

The idea of this course is to teach information to tech leaders and C level execs quickly as they won’t normally have time to sit and watch long courses. My course is all about blockchain where I talk about what it is, why you would need it, potential use cases. I also run through a matrix of questions about whether a blockchai is suitable for your company and the key differences between a blockchain and a database.

This course was good fun to produce as I had to setup all the lighting and camera myself aswell as record good audio. This is much harder than you think with getting the lighting right to reduce glare from the computer screen and my glasses. I am really pleased with the results though.

Asynchronous Messaging with RabbitMQ and EasyNetQ

Accessing Rabbit MQ from .NET Core on the Apple Mac

The second course I have released this week is a more traditional Pluralsight course called, Asynchronous Messaging with RabbitMQ and EasyNetQ. This course is about the RabbitMQ messaging platform and how to use it with the EasyNetQ client library. The course is aimed at C# developers using .NET Core or the .NET Framework, and it will get them up and running and productive very quickly as it is very demo focused. 

This course works as a great companion to my other course, RabbitMQ by Example, which builds up the same sample application scenario but using the much more complicated RabbitMQ client library. If you want to compare the default client library to the EasyNetQ client library, then both courses will give you that information. If you just want to make your life easier and go straight to EasyNetQ, then this course contains everything you need.

Flexispot E2B Sit / Stand Desk and Getting Healthier

Since I have been working for myself I have been trying to make sure I get more exercise by walking more. The problem though is that I then go to an office and sit down for 8 hours which is not good for you. To remedy this I decided to invest in an electric sit-stand desk so that I can make sure I stay more active during the day.

In this video, I talk about my new desk and the reasons for getting it.

If you are interested in the desk I got, then the details are here.
