I’m proud to announce that my new eBook, Migration Guide to Firebird 4, will be released in 23, August. The eBook has 219 pages, and it is written in Portuguese. I’m still not sure if I’ll make an English version this time… mostly depends on the number of requests that I may receive (feel free to use the comments in this post).
Once again, this is a “solo” project, as I’m the author, editor and publisher. This work was made possible thanks to the 300+ people who contributed in the Brazilian crowdfunding campaign: Thank you all!
The Guide is devoted to developers using any version of Firebird who wants to move to Firebird 4 in the most straight and peaceful way. It probably can save hours of work!
The eBook will start selling to the public starting at August, 30, in the FireBase on-line store.
