2009 is the 25th anniversary of Microsoft Press! To celebrate their b-bay they’re giving away two free e-books, namely
- Windows Small Business Server 2008 Administrator’s Companion by Charlie Russel and Sharon Crawford (27 chapters, 3 appendices, 712 pages)
- Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition: Build a Program Now! by Patrice Pelland (9 chapters, Glossary, 254 pages)
Before opening one of the links make sure that you disable your Pop-Up blocker as the window containing the book will be opened in a new window. Additionally, when the new window gets opened give it some time to show the content as the VB book is roughly 8MB and the Windows Small Business Server book is around 24MB.
To download the book click “Page >> Save As…” and rename the download in the Save window.
Get them as soon as the offer lasts (April 22nd) 🙂
Edited April 22, 2009: Included the last section on “How to download the ebooks”.
