Well, almost… Kimberly and I have agreed to co-author the upcoming SQL Server 2008 Internals book with our good friend Kalen Delaney. This is the 2008 evolution of Kalen’s Inside SQL Server series of books and will be published by MS Press around February 2009. The other authors are (also our good friends) Adam Machanic and Conor Cunningham.


Kimberly’s going to write the chapter on Index Internals and I’m going to write the chapter on DBCC Internals. This is very exciting as these are our respective favorite subjects, as you probably already know – these won’t be short chapters :-)


It’s going to be a busy rest of the year – phew!


PS Next year we have plans to write a book ourselves – watch this space…
