Over the years, I’ve been a big fan of virtual learning and specifically Pluralsight – as it sets a benchmark for providing high-quality content across a variety of technology and domains.
A few months back, I was approached to publish a Pluralsight course of my own and although I’m no stranger to training people on various aspects of Salesforce, I never imagined recording a course of my own and that too on a prestigious platform such as Pluralsight.
Needless to say, I said ‘Yes’ and then began my journey of several months of planning, content production, practice, recording and post production. And I’m pleased to inform that my first Pluralsight course – ‘Play by Play: How to Mobilize Your Salesforce App‘ is now live.
Producing a Pluralsight course (on any technology or domain) is not easy. It requires several months of commitment, focus on quality and perseverance. I was fortunate to have Don Robins as my fellow author and mentor all along the process.
Don is an accomplished Pluralsight author with 10+ successfully published courses on Pluralsight. With him guiding the way, I produced a course outline which was accepted by Pluralisght.
The outcome of a Play by Play course is largely determined on the D-day, it’s the day when the authors record the course. Having a good grasp of the subject matter helps. I’m not used to being in recording studios but I think I did reasonably well to hold my nerves and get through the 4-hour recording session.
Once the recording is done, the post production team does their magic and I was immensely thrilled and proud when the course went live. It’s been a few days since then and I’m very satisfied with the overall response that the course has received so far.
Why this topic?
If you are wondering on how why I chose this topic to publish my first course, the answer isn’t too difficult to guess. Although there’s a plethora of information available on Salesforce mobile development, there’s no single go to resource which guides developers on real-life scenarios and decision making situations where they need to chose a specific approach.
And that was precisely the objective of producing ‘Play by Play: How to Mobilize Your Salesforce App’ – to serve as a guiding light for those embarking on the journey of Salesforce mobile development and trying to make a well-informed decision on what to chose among various development methodologies.
I hope those who watch the course find it’s worth their time! And I hope, this is the first of many Pluralsight courses that I produce in the years to come!
