You all might remember that back in the winter, a handful of our books were recognized by the Puget Sound chapter of the Society for Technical Communications. (See blog post http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2014/01/22/quick-news-microsoft-press-picks-up-six-awards-at-last-night-s-stc-ceremony.aspx.)
Today, we’re happy to announce that three of those books were sent to the international judges and have received recognition at the top level of competition. Here are the winners. Congratulations to the authors and editors who produced these high-quality books.
