Book Review: SSIS Design Patterns

Samuel Vanga (Blog | @SamuelVanga) has posted a review of our new book SSIS Design Patterns at his blog. Several of Sam’s statements struck me, but none more than this:

Within a few hours of reading SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Patterns, it stood out that none of the authors were trying to impress by showing what they all know in SSIS. Instead, they focused on describing solutions and patterns in a great detail (exactly why I paid for).

Sam mentions he could not locate the source code, a concern mentioned by others who have emailed me. Links source code is located on the Apress Home Page for SSIS Design Patterns shown here:


I do not like this page design because it has a link at the top called “Source Code” and that link does not take you to the source code for this book, but rather to a page that describes Apress’ source code supplied with books.

The link to the source code for SSIS Design Patterns is down the page a bit, shown here:


I appreciate Samuel’s review and hope his experience is shared by many!
