A while back I invited the unpublished masses to submit abstracts for a new-author-written SQL book – called Tribal SQL – and the people spoke. The chosen ones are now feverishly writing their first drafts, as the rough deadline for first drafts approaches.
This entire proceeding is new, interesting, fun, and – truth to tell – fairly experimental*. We’re keeping it loose to see how well a group of people can come together to Make a Cool Thing, just for the joy of doing so, of passing on knowledge. So far, so good, and I’m #FuriouslyHappy when I think about it. (Write on, writers!)
So now, I need editors!
If you’re interested in being a part of this project (and getting an editor credit), please contact me at Jen@MidnightDBA.com with your joyous communication.
*Okay, only sort of experimental, as we’re largely following the MVP Deep Dives format – get a bunch of people to write a chapter about something awesome and SQL-y, peer edit, and publish it. I think the “experimental” part comes in where we’re not using a publisher, and that we – the MidnightDBAs – are the ones coordinating this.
