About the Author

James Wightman is an average guy. A programmer, problem solver, artist, and artisan, he loves his work and his family, and he's looking for that one chance to change the world. Born in 1975, James spent his formative years reading Marvel comics and books by Tolkien before discovering computers in 1980. Teaching himself to program computers at the age of 6, he wrote himself a teaching aid to learn pure mathematics and then translated the program into Z80 machine language. From there, he learned C and then became adept with 68000 assembly language and eventually C++, writing two games one released commercially for the Commodore Amiga.

James is an innovator in many ways and in many areas. At age 11, he invented a way for aircraft to land with increased safety, and at age 12, he invented a VCR that could record four simultaneous broadcast streams onto a standard VHS tape. That you don't own a VCR that records four channels at once and that aircraft still make a squealing sound when their wheels touch tarmac indicate how well the designs of a preteen are received by companies such as Sony and Boeing. His next invention will rock the world to its very foundations. Or at least cause a ripple. Maybe. So he hopes.

Having worked on the largest of Microsoft technology led projects for some of the biggest companies worldwide for the past 15 years, James is honored to have worked on his second book, Pro SQL Server 2005 Integration Services, and hopes that writing will remain a part of his ongoing commitment to programming and the programming community.

Currently, his time is taken up learning the Mandarin, Japanese, and Russian languages as well as spending time on the MSDN forums trying to help his peers. In his spare time, he works on his next books for Apress. He was also recently voted in as a school governor.

In his work life, James is technical lead on a project in cooperation with Microsoft which could, quite literally, save the planet.

Format: Paperback
He does an excellent job of discussing the practical applications of SSIS and getting into the deeper uses. As someone who used DTS heavily, I figured out SSIS as I went along but this book unlocked all that it could do for me.

I read a few other books on SSIS but they didn't take me anywhere I couldn't get on my own. This book doesn't just explain what, but why. Reading this book is like working with an SSIS mentor who will point out all of the little issues that are liable to arise in real-world situations. Invaluable.

I've read several books on SSIS and this is by far the best yet. Explains it at a more advanced and PRACTICAL level than the others while still being easy to follow. Higly recommended. Source code is available at apress.com.

Not sure why even one reviewer can rate this bad, this author is awesome. He is very encouraging, he had me drawn by his enthusiasm and love for SSIS. I am still making my way through the book, but wow, I am truly impressed, not only with the way the author elucidates the info, but by the power of SSIS.

Microsoft rocks......

Format: Paperback
The author glosses over most everything.
It's as if he is in a rush to go somewhere else and the fact that he is trying to explain something many annoy or hinder him.
The ONLY thing I got from this book is that SSIS is now designed to NOT use staging tables, rather to do everything in memory in a stream.
OK - there's the book for you in one sentence. Other than that, he'll point out the obvious and avoid the real questions.
I really do not recommend this book.
