Summary
Pluralsight logoPluralsight

Pluralsight is one of the online learning platform with a clear focus on helping companies upskill their employees with tech skills. While they do offer their course catalog to consumers as well, many of their main strengths come into play with enterprise customers. We particularly like their extensive library of courses, with a lot of them focussing on very specific technical topics that other platforms might not even have resources for. That means that Pluralsight is a great platform for companies looking to upskill employees and more advanced techies trying to learn new skills. As a beginner, you might be a bit overwhelmed on Pluralsight.

Treehouse logoTreehouse

Treehouse focuses on tech skills, with both their course subscription and Techdegree programs including access to their library of courses. We like that you can choose between the cheaper, self-service subscription or the more expensive Techdegree programs which come with learning support and a more tailored learning experience. Overall, their course offering isn't as extensive as that of some of their competitors, so if you're looking for more niche courses you might not find them on Treehouse.
