SSIS Design Patterns, the Book

For the past two years, I have had the honor and privilege or authoring SSIS Design Patterns alongside Jessica Moss, Michelle Ufford, Tim Mitchell, and Matt Masson. Publication of the book – like many projects of this scope – has been delayed. The current publication date is 27 Aug 2012 and I have high confidence in this date.

I take responsibility for publication delays and apologize to those who pre-ordered the book. The reasons for the delays are not important. I have built a career as a software developer and architect based on the following maxim:

Deliver quality late, no one remembers.
Deliver junk on time, no one forgets.

The shared goal of everyone working on this project has been to deliver quality. Proofing the manuscripts, I believe we have achieved that goal.

 I appreciate the update to the publication date. I've got the book through the Alpha program and look forward to getting the released version. I've had a chance to look through the chapters as they are now and it's been interesting, though I haven't had the time to dedicate as I'd like.

As long as Tim gives away a few copies a a NTSSUG meeting, I'll be happy.


May have to buy the book anyway, since most of my job recently has been scrubbing data.

I pre-ordered the book and can't wait to see the final, high-quality, product. I've also used the same maxim throughout my career and I have always found it to be true. Keep up your exceptional work and know that we appreciate the effort.

I didn't see any table-of-content in amazon site. What does the design pattern section in this book cover? Are you talking about software world's pattern such as mvc, factory etc?
