For one week starting today, October 10, Pluralsight is entirely free, for both new and existing users. This includes free certificates of completion.
This limited-time offer includes access to Pluralsight’s catalog, which comprises: 7000 expert-led video courses, 40 interactive courses, and 20 projects.
In this article, we explain how to redeem the offer. And to help you make the most of the free week, we’ve compiled the 100 best Pluralsight courses according to users. They’re all excellent options to get started.
Our colleague @suparn helped us collect data about Pluralsight’s course offering.
We found that since 2012, Pluralsight has launched over 14,177 courses. Some of these are just conference talks, and many of the topics are no longer relevant. Today, Pluralsight boasts a catalog of about 7,000 active courses.
The average length of these courses is 2 hours 10 minutes, while the median is 1 hour 55 minutes. Here’s their difficulty distribution:

One week of free access isn’t all that long. But Pluralsight specializes in short courses, with durations ranging from 30 minutes to a few hours. So if you’re motivated and have a little bit of time on your hands, you can squeeze a lot of learning into a week. Above, you can see some of the certificates of completion I’ve earned since the offer went live.
