I just got the good word, I submitted an abstract for a spotlight session at the PASS Summit and it was accepted. Jazzed doesn’t begin to describe it. If you’re interested in hearing what I think about Best Practices for working with Execution Plans, please swing by.

A Book

April 28, 2008 at 3:51 pm (Misc) (, , , , )

It’s only the E-Book, the print version won’t be available for another couple of weeks, but…

I HAVE A BOOK PUBLISHED!

It’s also available here.

I can not possibly thank the man who gave me the opportunity, carried my sorry-ass down the track, made me write something that closely approximated English, challenged just about every assumption that I walked in with, in other words, did more to make the book happen than I did, Tony Davis. I also had some simply amazing help from Brad McGehee. Brad must have looked up and double checked every single fact I wrote down because I think he found a correction for most of them. Amazing guys. Thanks so much. When you consider how much time & effort these guys put in, I’m not sure what I did in comparison or even why they needed me to make this happen.

Oh, and lest I forget, despite the hard work of these great men, I’m sure I still managed to slip a few errors in, so enjoy tracking them down.
