PowerShell Deep Dives Book – Early Access and 50% Discount Code

I was recently fortunate enough to be invited by fellow PowerShell MVP Jeffery Hicks to contribute to a new book published by Manning: PowerShell Deep Dives. The intention of this book is to follow in a tradition similar to that set by a group of SQL Server MVPs who have published two SQL Deep Dive books (1 and 2), with profits going to a nominated charity.

This PowerShell Deep Dive book features contributions from PowerShell MVPs, well known community contributors and Microsoft consultants. Editors Jeffrey Hicks, Richard Siddaway, Oisin Grehan, and Aleksandar Nikolic are joined by PowerShell experts Don Jones, Arnaud Petitjean, Boe Prox, Bartek Bielawski, Mike Robbins, Vadims Podans, Ashley McGlone, James O’Neill, Jeff Wouters, Will Steele, Jonathan Medd, Adam Driscoll, Trevor Sullivan, Josh Gavant, Karl Prosser, Jim Christopher, Ben Miller, Donabel Santos, Robert C. Cain, Jen Stirrup, Jason Helmick, and Chris Bellée.

The content is listed below and is available under Manning’s Early Access Program where you can get access to chapters as and when they become available. If you are quick there is a 50% off promo code dotd1220au at http://www.manning.com/hicks/ valid until 20th Dec 2012.
