Migrating to SBS 2011 Essentials eBook

It has been nagging away at me that it wasn’t finished. I do hate leaving things half done.

Good news however, I finished it recently and decided rather than publish it as a blog post, to wrap it up as an eBook. One of the reasons is it is over 130 pages long.

This item is no longer available if you are interested in a copy please get in touch.
