Two years ago when SQL Server MVP Deep Dives: Volume 1 was released, I had the opportunity to contribute two chapters. In SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Volume 2, I not only had the opportunity to contribute a chapter, but the privilege of being the section editor of the Performance Tuning and Optimization section of the book. I would like to thank all of the following writers in my section for all their hard work, and for getting me their drafts on schedule. I also want to thank Grant Fritchey, who helped me coordinating the technical editing of the chapters.
The writers who I worked with in the Performance Tuning and Optimization section of the book included:
- Glenn Berry
- Grant Fritchey
- Jason Strate
- Robert Pearl
- Linchi Shea
- Jennifer McCown
- Tim Chapman
- Jungsun Kim
The book is available for pre-order at the Manning website, and hard copies will be available for purchase at the PASS Summit. If you are attending PASS and want to purchase a book, you can also get it signed by many of the authors at two different autograph parties at these times:
- Wednesday, 1:00 – 1:30 PM, at the Expo & Dining Hall
- Friday, 7:15 – 8:00 AM, in Room 211
If you can’t attend either autograph party, each of the book’s authors attending PASS will be wearing ribbons that say “MVP Deep Dives Author”, so all you have to do is to chase them down to get their autographs.
All author royalties will be donated to Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity.
