We want to celebrate the recent publication of SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, Volume 2 which not only shares the real-world insights of a whopping 64 SQL Server MVPs, it helps deliver healthy smiles to children around the world.
The second volume of this highly-regarded book offers expert advice on topics ranging from testing and policy management to integration services, reporting, and performance optimization techniques.
Together, the 64 MVPs who wrote this book bring about 1,000 years of experience in SQL Server administration, development, training, and design!
Demonstrating their community leadership, the MVP contributors have pledged the proceeds from this book to Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles through a mobilized force of medical professionals who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Thank you to all the MVPs who participated in this initiative for setting such an amazing standard of thoughtful generosity.
Editor's Note- December 9, 2011: We have been notified by a few MVPs that you can actaully purchase SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, Volume directly from the publisher (here) to maximize the funds that go to charity. Thanks for letting us know!
The charity gets slightly more if people buy the book through the publisher directly, via http://manning.com/delaney
