About the Book
On LeanPub, you are getting the "Forever Edition" of this book. As I write it, if you find anything you don't like or if you find yourself wanting to know more than what I'm laying out there, let me know! Tweet at me, email me, start yelling somewhere around downtown Kansas City... I'll respond! The better we can make this book together, the better I can help you learn everything you need to know about AWS PowerShell.
I wanted to take a moment to touch on the publication process with LeanPub because it allows me to keep the book agile and fresh, and it helps me put the book in your hands much sooner than if I had to draft it all from scratch, go through a traditional publisher, and then finally deliver it to you. Also, if I did that, how would I know that what I'm delivering is even relevant to you?
Technology is always changing. We're talking about the really revolutionary technology in this book like AWS, PowerShell, and we'll even discuss some of the helper functions and services to build a functional AWS environment. ALL of it is changing, and ALL of it is updated daily. By purchasing this book, you'll have access (forever) to my endless updates to the AWS and PowerShell toolsets we'll use throughout.
