Hidden Gems – Collection of free E-books

  • Comments 5

I’ve been told by multiple IT Pros that the TechNet properties are very useful.  But they feel really big and it’s sometimes hard to find things.  This is why I try as much as I can to let you know when I find hidden treasures.

Today I found, completely by accident I might add, a collection of free E-Book.  They cover ASP.NET, Office, SQL Server, Windows Azure, SharePoint Server and other Microsoft technologies in e-book formats.

These e-book are available in multiple formats.  Such as EPUB MOBI and PDF.

the original location of this collection can be found here.  And I understand that this list gets updated regularly.

 

I thought you may find this of use.

Cheers!
