Gentlemen, Start your Word Processors
I am one of three authors of the Microsoft Press book on Developing/Programming for SQL Server “Yukon” due out when the product ships. Last night I met with fellow authors Andrew Brust and Bill Zack at Andrew’s house and discussed the final outline, chapter assignment and writing schedule. Bill has written an article on the new SQL Server Service Broker for SQL Server magazine, so look for that in the March issue and I have written and article for MSDN magazine for the February issue on the new TSQL improvements, IDE and CLR Stored Procedures. These of course are excepts from chapters, so the writing process has officially begun.
This is going to be a great book since we will target .NET developers more than the DBA, while covering all the administrative features and tools. Since performance is as much of a developer concern as DBA concern, expect lots on performance tuning and optimization. I can’t post the outline and sample chapters here just yet (stay tuned, one day I can), but I can tell you we cover everything from soup to nuts. I was assigned (actually asked) for the chapter on XQuery, XML and the XML Datatype. Clemens must find that so funny!
