Every so often Microsoft releases a bunch of new books that they give away for free. Most of the time they are for the latest and greatest software and systems, so they are worth checking out. Currently they have books for:
Microsoft SQL Server 2016
Windows Server 2016
Microsoft Power BI
Microsoft SharePoint Hybrid Capabilities
Mobile App Development
…and much more. Check out the list here.
While it is nice to be able to download these as PDF files, I am really happy that I can also download all of these files as proper e-Books from www.kobobooks.com for my Kobo, and I assume from www.Amazon.ca for my Kindle (I don’t have a Kindle… but you know what I am saying).
Here is what I like to do to make sure I don’t miss a thing:
- I log on to my Kobo account.
- I enter the name of the product I am looking for in the Search bar (say, Windows 10).
- When the list comes up I change the Sort parameters to Sort By: Price: Low to High. This ensures that the FREE books come up first.
Let me be clear though, there are some excellent books on all of these subjects that are not free, and are probably worth buying. That is not the point of the article though
Thanks Microsoft Virtual Academy!
