Book Launch Notice – Table of Contents

My book is ready but team has noted that it will finish Tekedia migration to Amazon Web Services (AWS) tomorrow.  Backup had already been taken. This particular post will possibly be lost after the restoration (we will re-post via a new permalink post-restore); same goes for this and this. I am doing minor post updates until the site is fully migrated.

The decision to migrate to AWS is to ensure the best possible service on a subscription product. The book will go live on Tuesday before 7am New York time. I am very confident that all potential issues on AWS migration will be fixed by then.

The Table of Contents

This is our working Table of Contents. All will be made live on Monday.
