A free Christmas gift that keeps on giving! File warehousing has been a hot-topic in recent years and I'm often asked questions about it. So I decided to put together a short(ish) eBook on the subject.

This guide talks about what warehousing is and how you could potentially benefit from utilising the technique in your projects. It shows you how to create a simple warehouse directory in your preferred FTP software and also discusses how to optimise files ready for use. Methods of linking to warehoused files and embedding them in your webpages is covered. We dive-into the idea of building a commercial-grade file warehouse using Amazon S3 servers. And as a bonus, there also some information on building your very own 'dropbox' style collaborative environment using ownCloud.
I hope the contained information is of help and you find this guide to be an interesting read. This is just a 'version 1' so far, and it's possible it might get expanded in future to include some more chapters or information.
May I take this opportunity to wish all my customers a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017. It's been another very successful year for ThemeFlood and Stacks4Stacks; plus the new seyDesign, RapidSearchPro and RWExtras projects that came onboard in August. I'm very grateful as ever for your past and future custom.
