Hello Dear Reader. Every now and then professionally you get to be a part of something really cool. Back in the spring of 2012 Jonathan Gennick of Apress contacted me about participating in a book. His idea? Get together a lot of really amazing SQL Server Professionals in order to write on subject they were passionate about.
The list of professionals involved was one that made me immediately want to own the book. When I got the chance to help I jumped! I wasn't alone.
The companies whose employees collaborated on this book come from Red Gate Software, SQL Skills,Brent Ozar Unlimited, Pragmatic Works, and many others. They are MVP's, MCM's, and regular old SQL Community folk like myself.
We all decided to write blogs reviewing/describing each others chapters. I will be listing and updating them here.
If you're interested here is a link for the book on Amazon. Big Thanks to Apress, Jonathan, and my fellow Authors!
