Gigabytes of Free Books from Microsoft!!!

Once again, Microsoft is giving away gigabytes of free books. Eric Ligman (Microsoft Director of Sales Excellence Blog) announced on July 11 that even more books than last year are freely available. If Microsoft is trying to gain loyalty by giving away free stuff, its working. 🙂

You have the option of downloading individual books or all of them in one shot with a PowerShell script. I recommend running this in Visual Studio Code with the Code Runner plugin. If you only cut and paste the code in VS Code and not save it, you’ll have to use the Select Language Mode (lower right corner) to choose PowerShell before you can run it. I downloaded books selectively and it resulted in 3.88 GB of files.

Anyways, I want to thank Microsoft for supporting developers and the IT community with the resources to do our jobs well.
