New Course – The Future of Technology Careers

What technologies will you be working on a decade from now? Will you even be working in tech? Do you even think that far ahead?

Most of us don’t. There’s this assumption that because technology changes so quickly, long range career planning in technology is futile. So our careers are driven by the opportunities of the moment and happenstance, rather than by any real long term thought.

But it turns out that long term career planning is possible, even as the pace of technology change increases. Not only is it possible, it’s a crucial part of any technology career, for all that it is neglected.

My new Pluralsight course, “The Future of Technology Careers” can help you to start applying long range planning to your career – to think about the future in new ways.

And if that doesn’t convince you to watch it, allow me to point out that it is the only Pluralsight course to seriously address the potential consequences of a Zombie apocalypse on software development. How can anyone say no to that? Remember – you can sign up for a free trial on their web site, so what are you waiting for?

    I call BS, I don’t see any sub-heading on any Zombie Apocalypse! If you’re going to have “Governments Will Screw Things Up”, you need one with “Zombie Apocalypse or invasion by ROUS”.

    You have to watch the course – it’s in module 1. Zombie apocalypse can’t have a subheader – if it did, you’d see it coming 🙂

    Thanks for your courses. You are easily one of the best teachers on pluralsight. But I do need to point out that you pronounce entrepreneur wrong every single time and it does get irritating after a while.

    Just type “define entrepreneur” on google and you will see the exact ‘one and only’ pronunciation for it. There is no ‘tromp’ in the word.
    It is:
    /ˌäntrəprəˈnər/ or more easily read ahn-truh-pruh-nœr. The emphasis is on the very first syllable.

    Oh my… I don’t know what astonishes me most. That I got it wrong, or that nobody has mentioned this before ever (including QA on the course itself). Unfortunately, I don’t see a way to rerecord all of the courses where I use the word, but I will be more careful going forward.
