Links in the book, Learn SQL Server Reporting Services 2012

My new book on SQL Server Reporting Services 2012 is about to be released and this post provides a list of links referenced in the book, sorted chapter wise.







Hyperlinks provide a gateway to the extensive literature that can be accessed on the Internet. They provide information (collective knowledgebase) above and beyond what one finds in a single article,book,blog or other media formats. However links in a printed book are useful to only those readers who would go to any lengths to find information but irksome, frustrating and almost useless to the others. They are of course useful in online formats such as eBooks.

In order to conform to page count limit set by the publishers (as you might have noticed computer books have become heftier and heftier) and yet provide guidance to the readers there is no better way than publishing a list of links that is chapter-wise sorted and placed in a location that is easy to access. This post is an attempt to do just that. However some essential information from Microsoft Documentation is used as is in the book in some of the chapters.
