About the book :
The authors have serious technical writing skills. I’ve been inspired by such talented, experimented and professional people.
Intended Audience : technical coordinators, entry level system administrators, students (anyone who already have a little knowledge of macOS and want to go further.)
I feel supported by Apple. The book is very well organised. Written in 2016. It is about an application from a very used operating system by Apple Inc. This is an IT manual. It is about being knowledgeable about an Apple product. It is a scientific and highly technical subject. It explains how OS X Server works. It is well-written. It’s easy to read. It is exactly 722 pages long. The authors make a complex subject easy to read and practice. It’s a colourful book (with highlights and screenshots). Thats good to my eyes and efficient because as the idiom say « A picture is worth a thousand words ».This book is very well organised. All the exercises are planned to be done in a safe environment (test server).
If you want to know more on a subject there is a lot of links to the Apple official support website (often it can be a pdf file with beautiful pictures).
I would like to thank all the people who have worked at Peachpit Press for making this book possible. Thanks for sharing with us !
