Are you fascinated by the idea of building a home server, but unsure why you should, or what a server can do for you?
Experimenting with technology or building computers tends to follow a logical path. You might begin with building computers and move to networking those computers together, which can lead to needing a device to help control and secure them. That’s where servers come in.
The For the Tech Hobbyist book series are written for computer hobbyists or experimenters who build systems for fun, or to help solve problems in their homes or even businesses. The series covers the basics of what, why and how a home server might be the right idea for you.
This is the first book in the series and it takes a top level look at –
* What is the difference between a server and a desktop PC?
* Why should you build a home server?
* What can a server do for you and why should you spend the time/money on one?
* Give you an insight into the ‘secrets’ of servers and show that they’re not that big a deal.
Please be aware, these books are aimed at experimenters and hobbyists, although anyone who loves working with computers might find something of interest.
