Removing My Visual Studio Tips and Treats Download
posted 8/26/2008 6:33:36 AM by Steve Andrews
As many of you know, I have a Visual Studio Tips and Treats presentation with over 140 tips. It has been an enormously popular presentation and one that I enjoy presenting. As part of that presentation I offered my eBook of these tips for download from my website. As of today, that download will no longer be available.
It has come to my attention that Sara Ford, the source of many of my tips, has written an MS Press book titled "Microsoft Visual Studio Tips: 251 Ways to Improve Your Productivity." The real story though is that Sara has announced she will donate 100% of the author book royalties to create a scholarship fund at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for anyone living in her hometown of Waveland, Mississippi, which was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. The Save Waveland Scholarship Fund will give preference to math and computer science majors.
In light of this, I am removing my eBook from the Download section of my blog, and recommending everyone purchase a copy, or two, of her book instead. You can pre-order Sara's book on Amazon.com.
Go Sara Go!
