The Re-Launch of the PowerShell.org Free eBooks (now in Spanish, too!)

We’re pleased to announce the re-launch of our Free eBook Store, now hosted exclusively on Leanpub. This re-launch includes 7 titles translated into Spanish by community contributor¬†Alvaro Torres.

All eBooks are free, although you can also choose to pay any amount of $5 or more, which becomes a donation to The DevOps Collective, Inc. Leanpub offers a web-based reader and, if you “buy” the book, options to download in EPUB, MOBI, and PDF formats.

We used to dual-publish on Leanpub and GitBook; GitBook no longer supports ebook downloading (they’re online-only, now) and Leanpub now offers a free online reader mode, so we’re moving exclusively to Leanpub. Leanpub does offer a smartphone app as well, which you can use to manage your entire Leanpub library.

Don’t forget that all of the books’ “source” is hosted at GitHub in public open-source repositories. You’re welcome to fork the repos, submit pull requests, and so on. Note that we don’t provide technical support for the books at GitHub; please use the Forums for that. Further, while everyone appreciates suggestions for improving the books, what we¬†really appreciate are community members who can fork the repo, implement their suggestions, and submit a pull request!

Please help us spread the word so more people can use these great, entirely-free resources!
