Technology learning platform Pluralsight launches its first in-person conference with Michelle Obama headlining

Quite frankly, you had us at Michelle Obama. I won’t hide my admiration for the former US First Lady. I believe she is a beacon of intelligence, grace, assertiveness and compassion which provides the best possible role model for young girls to look up to, specially since she credits education for helping her become who she is, and to achieve what she has. This TED talk pretty much sums it up and is well worth a watch, if you can bear the waves of regret and nostalgia that will inevitably wash over you…

It’s also about what skills we’ll need to evolve to cope in this evolving digital world we’re building, and how to get the most value from the investment we make in learning and up skilling our workforce. To explore these themes Pluralsight has drafted in other high-profile experts on areas such as data science, cloud, mobile and cyber security from companies such as Slack, Cerner, Adobe, Microsoft, Overflow and Nasdaq as well as all the best talent from its own team. You can check out the full line-up of speakers here.

“Where leaders, technologists and visionaries collide. Out from behind the computer screens, lines of code, tangled cords and clogged inboxes is a community breathing life into fresh ideas. They push the boundaries of what’s possible, inspire one another, and share it with the world. They’re innovators, change-makers, mentors and friends.”
