Free SharePoint Server 2013 E-books,Models, Planning Worksheets, Design Samples and more Part 2


Last month I did an article about all the resources I found online about SharePoint 2013, but unfortunately not a lot of people check regularly and sometimes they are well hidden.  This post was a big success (1152 views) and I received a lot of good comments about it.  Therefore, I am happy to continue (as promised) to search and present you all the new free resources on internet every month.

I am happy to present you Part 2 of the “Free SharePoint Server 2013 Resources” series  that gives you all the resources for the month of November.
