Sunday Surprise – Introducing new Transact-SQL eBook!


Good Sunday to you all,

As you may all remember, at the end of November Gokan Ozcifci published this blog post First TechNet Wiki Ninjas eBook: "The Wiki Ninjas Guide to SharePoint 2013". I really liked the idea of creating that book and immediately thought that we may want to follow this great initiative and create a Transact-SQL e-book. I added a comment to that blog post and was very pleasantly surprised a few days later by being contacted by Saeid Hasani who offered his help in book preparation.

So, I decided I'll take a role of the boss and let Saeid work on preparing the book πŸ™‚ which he did splendidly. Several weeks later we were discussing this new e-book in Skype Group and when Durval Ramos heard about our plans with the book, he got very excited about the idea and also joined our team.

UPDATE. After we published the first version of this eBook we found that two articles were inadvertently missing. So we added them back and published the eBook again. At this stage Ronen Ariely joined our team and helped us to fix all the Guest Authors profiles to be direct links.  

So, now I am very happy to introduce our first Transact-SQL eBook which is created by combining many great SQL Server articles in TechNet Wiki.

This eBook now consists of 51 articles written by 18 authors! Special thanks to all the TechNet Wiki Community authors who contributed articles in this eBook:

You can also find the alphabetical list of authors on the Gallery download page: Transact-SQL by TechNet Wiki Community

I hope you will enjoy this book, which you can Download here (click on the link).

Happy reading!

    Thanks Shanky! This book is just about T-SQL articles, our plan was creating four books. Three of them is still remain. I think those articles belong to database engine.

    This is fantastic! We need to add a list of TechNet Wiki authors to this blog post and to the Gallery item. Saeid, can you add it to the Gallery item? Naomi and I will publish it on this blog post first so that you can just copy it over. Thanks!

    Durval need to be added to the list with 1 article, and My articles need to change to 4 from 3. Well done to all of you πŸ™‚

  17. Naomi N says:

    The blog post has been updated with the new information

  18. Saeid Hasani says:

    Thank you Naomi for updating the blog post in your rest time πŸ™‚

  19. Durval Ramos says:

    This list of authors only shows the excellent ability of members TechNet Wiki with T-SQL language. Congratulations to all

  20. Saeid Hasani says:

    How did we changed the order of the e-book articles? We created a word document of each articles separately. Then we worked on each articles. And we put together all of them and merged them into one document file. We changed its order multiple times! But,
    That was so easy because of this short MSWord tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPAY61BgqJU

  21. pituach says:

    It seems like a very effective way Saeid πŸ™‚ This small comment of yours is very useful!

    To come with ebook or what we call the electronic book if i understand the word ebook right, it is a great idea indeed, even you can come with your own ebook from your daily article as the as the writer of the ebook. we have a very nice program to make with it a book with or articles we wrote every where and this computer program called for the page maker.With this program any one can make his own book.
