We publish a monthly TechLetter e-mail newsletter that’s full of tips, feature articles, and more. We never share, rent, sell, or otherwise disclose your e-mail address, and we only e-mail you once a month around the middle of the month. You can unsubscribe any time you want to.
Best yet, our TechLetter subscribers get first dibs on new book releases (including free books), PowerShell Summit memberships, and more. C’mon, you know you wanna.
We provide online access to back issues (excluding the most recent 2-3 issues – you’ll need to subscribe to get the latest).
Even More Free Stuff – the PowerShell.org EBook Collection
Â Â Â Â
We’re extremely fortunate to be able to offer a set of free e-books related to key PowerShell topics. Authored by community experts and curated by members of the community, these are updated pretty regularly – so it’s worth checking back for new editions every few months. If you get the TechLetter (above), we’ll notify you when new editions are posted.Â Note that these links go to the books’ Git repositories; you can download the latest doc and access code samples there.
