Believe it baby!

Many of you have seen me at various Microsoft events during 2007 with my portable data center where I pushed the envelope of what's possible with Mobile Merge Replication.  After synchronizing almost 14 million rows per hour between SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server Compact 3.1 at the Window Mobile Partner Summit, I've never felt more confident in this powerful technology.  If your organization wants to mobilize its workforce, I've got the answer for you.

One of my goals for the year was to convert a complex 4-tier Merge Replication architecture into an easy-to-follow handbook.

So I posted every chapter of this book to my blog over the last several months and with a lot of help from my friends all over the world, we whipped this book into shape.  I am now a believer in the notion of community technical editing.  I want to send a big thanks to Hood Canal Press, the MVP community, and lots of supportive colleagues at Microsoft.

The book is now headed out through distribution channels in North America and Europe.  Just as soon as the book shows up on Amazon, I'll be the first to let you know.

Merry Christmas!
