The Portuguese version of my new eBook, Guia de migração para o Firebird 3 (Migration guide to Firebird 3) was just released! The book has tips and explanations to make the life of anyone who wishes to move to Firebird 3 easier.
An English version of the guide will be available in the following weeks at Amazon, both in paperback and digital formats. This is my third book devoted to Firebird, and the first one to be published also in English.
Brazilians can buy the guide right now in the FireBase on-line store.
