  • submit to reddit

Back with one more episode of Uncut & Unedited. This is episode number 28. And I have a a good friend on my show this time.

I was attending Microsoft TechEd India 2013 which was help on Mar 18/19 here at Bengaluru. This is one of the premiere events that we Microsoft Technologies geeks wait for. 2 days of technical fun and information overload is an amazing things and atmosphere is always great. This time too Pluralsight was participating with their booth at TechEd. Aaron Skonnard one of the co founders of Pluralsight was here in Bengaluru. In spite of the fact that he landed 6AM on Mar 18 – he was back at the booth by 11Am to meet the crowd. So I didn’t wanted to disturb him on that day. Caught hold of him on 19 and asked him if I can interview him for my show. He agreed for it readily and we went to the garden in front of Hotel Lalit Ashok. I am grateful to Aaron to give me his 10 minutes in spite of his busy schedule. But it is always so cheerful to talk to Aaron. This is his second presence on my show.


I ask Aaron the following questions:

  • Series A funding that Pluralsight raised recently – Aarons perspective on this
  • Pluralsight plan for future now that they have funding
  • Course areas that Pluralsight is looking out for
  • Pluralsight’s India presence and its impacts
  • Aaron’s TechEd India 2013 experience

Here is the video of the interview:


Hope you enjoy this episode. If you have any feedback do please leave it in the comments. It will help me to better myself.

Till next time, Happy Coding. Code with Passion, Decode with Patience.
