Annual Free Microsoft eBooks Giveaway

Annual Free Microsoft eBooks Giveaway

Eric Ligman, Microsoft's Director of Sales Excellence, is once again kicking off his annual effort to give away as many free Microsoft eBooks as possible.

I am a big fan of resources to help me in my daily tech life because I believe learning is critical to our successes. Here on IT Pro: Windows, I often point out the latest white papers I see from Microsoft because I believe in that value of learning from others.

Well today's resource has now become quite the tradition for Microsoft over the last few years because the library of eBooks they are giving away is huge and wide ranging across many of Microsoft product groups.

Since Ligman has been doing this giveaway for a few years he has gotten a lot of questions about the giveaway. He has turned those inquiries into a FAQ that should answer many of your questions.

As I mentioned earlier, the subjects of these books cover many of Microsoft's current products and services so you are very likely to find just what you need in this list.

Some of the titles available this year cover subjects including:

  • Windows
  • Power BI
  • Azure
  • Office
  • Windows Server
  • SharePoint
  • System Center
  • Dynamics
  • SQL Server
  • PowerShell

The free eBooks are available in either PDF, ePub or Mobi formats however, the formats available for each book varies.

But, wait...there's probably more so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Google+.
