[EN] SQL Server MVP Deep Dives e-book and pre-order are coming!
Last year a project named SQL Server MVP Book Project started. The result of this project is the "SQL Server MVP Deep Dives" title published by Manning! The book is coming as an e-book and pre-order on Amazon.com.
The title is coauthored by 53 MVPs and edited by some great names of the SQL Server world: Paul Nielsen (the originator of the whole project), Adam Machanic, Kalen Delaney, Greg Low, Kimberly Tripp and Paul Randal. The most important about this project is that none of the authors receive any money for their contributions (all proceeds are going to the charity).
The chapters are divided into five sections:
1. Database Design and Architecture
2. Database Development
3. Database Administration
4. Performance Tuning and Optimization
5. BI Development
And, wow! I’m happy to announce you can find my chapter "Utils now! Extend your productivity in SQL Server Management Studio and Query Analyzer" in Database Development section! It was a great experience to be a part of this project (and to have an opportunity to review one chapter written by Itzik Ben-Gan himself ;-)).
I’m sure the book is great with so many topics covered by so many experts. I can’t wait until I get my own copy and read all 850 pages!
PS1. Maybe we should think about some similar project locally in Polish Microsoft communities?
PS2. The real premiere of SQL Server MVP Deep Dives will probably happen at PASS Summit conference later this year. I’ll keep posting when the book is available to buy (or to get from me somehow :-)).
