Priceless: Online ReSharper Training from Pluralsight

Our good friends at Pluralsight have today made available their brand new online ReSharper training course.

How cool is that?!

Specifically, the course is the offspring of Pluralsight expert and JetBrains Academy Board member James Kovacs (@jameskovacs on twitter).

Hats off to this courageous evangelist!

This course covers everything you need to know to become a proficient ReSharper user: navigation, code analysis and coding assistance, refactorings, code cleanup, code generation and templates, unit testing, internationalization, and technology-specific ways to use ReSharper efficiently, including its capabilities in ASP.NET/ASP.NET MVC, XML, WPF, Silverlight, MSBuild & NAnt. James even talks JavaScript and CSS support, which will only be available in the upcoming ReSharper 6.

This course is a great value for everyone, and here’s why:

  • If you have just recently started using ReSharper, or if you haven’t yet taken the time to dive into the multitude of its features, you simply owe it to yourself to take this excellent course.
  • If you’re staying away from ReSharper because you think it’s no better than plain Visual Studio, this course will challenge you to think out of the box – and perhaps be converted.
  • Even if you’re a long-time ReSharper user, we bet you’ll see some exciting things about the tool that you never knew existed.

Anyway, taking this online ReSharper training course may very well be one of the best possible ways to invest your time. Even more so considering that Pluralsight provides a free 200-minute trial, and their monthly single-user subscription stands at as low as $29. And if this wasn’t enough, the guys at Pluralsight are preparing a special offer for everyone interested in ReSharper, so watch closely for more announcements very soon!

    This ReSharper training course really seems like a good investment. I’ve been looking for reliable tutorials and ways to become better at using the program, and this might just be the one I need. I’ll try the 200-minute free trial first and see how it goes. 🙂

    bit stink that you guys (jetbrains) don’t actually provide something like this for free.

    Yes we don’t have our own walkthrough course but think about it: we’re best at developing tools, Pluralsight is best at developing courses, so everybody wins. They provide a 200-minute trial, and even if it’s not enough, the value of this course is tons more than $29.

    @Jura, I think resharper is awesome, I started with it from when it first came out, I have built up my resharper ninja skills over time, through going through every key binding, following various peoples blogs and screen casts etc… I’m super productive with it. Which is a Common Story for resharper lovers 🙂

    However, I have *thought* about it, and sure you are best at developing tools! and yes, you shouldn’t develop courses. What you do is this cool thing with this money you get from resharper, you pay someone else who is good at doing courses to develop ( as I’m sure you do with written documentation / translation) material for you that you can then distribute with your product 🙂

    and yes it is very cool that Pluralsight offer cool trials, free temporary access and provide a good course. Top quality stuff! From both companies!

    But still, it feels a little bit stink that you buy a product and then need to go to another company to find out how to use it.

    Well we’re yet to discuss with Pluralsight additional opportunities for distributing this course to new users, and we’re certainly up to make the course more visible on R# website. We’ll see what we can do.

    I made the same point – Jetbrains should provide this stuff (not a third party) – they make the excuse that they are developers (not selling the program?). Marketing should keep up.
    Its called support – Microsoft provide videos galore.

    @Jimcocallis, @Keith,

    We are also providing material on and will continue to do so. Microsoft do offer a ton of videos, but so do other companies. There are dozens of companies (Pluralsight and others) that offer material on Microsoft technologies.
