Free eBooks from Microsoft–We like free!

In a recent blog post I mentioned the availability of the Programming Windows Phone 7 ebook by Charles Petzold. Well I have good news, there are a number of additional FREE ebooks available from Microsoft to help you continue honing your tech skills.

Moving to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

Own Your Future: Update Your Skills with Resources and Career Ideas from Microsoft

Understanding Microsoft Virtualization Solutions (Second Edition)

First Look Microsoft Office 2010

Windows 7 troubleshooting tips

Introducing Windows Server 2008 R2

Deploying Windows 7, Essential Guidance

I, for one, appreciate Microsoft making these resources available for free. I think it demonstrates their interest making sure we as developers and I.T. professionals have the resources we need to effectively solve the business problems we encounter.

Have a day. Disappointed smile
