Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (PRO-Developer)

I've been working with 2008 for 2 years now and with 2005/2000/7.0/6.5 since '98. This book has really become my right hand man with quick, easy to understand reference on the new capabilities of Sql Server 2008. I find it a great, fast to access source of information for a broad range of MSSQL concepts including; CLR, Replication, BI, Linq, New Syntax, deprecation warnings.. the list goes on. The book gives enough insite to a programmer to get him started with all the above. It does not delve into great depth on any of these ideas giving the developer a chance to utilize his/her own intelligence and pursue their own path of specific interest. It does, however, provide a great launching pad on all these ideas. Personally, I would have liked to have seen more on Performance Tuning and using the Service Broker. Reality is though, this IS one book. These days there's enough going on inside Sql Server to fill a library!! This book is a fantastic single point of reference for getting one's self started in 'most' of the concepts involved in a package that's quickly becoming an SOA/Enterprise platform of choice.

What would you like to do with SQL server, programming wise as the title suggests ? - Database development for applications or Business Intelligence (reporting, analytics)? This book covers both aspects and does not give sufficient depth to do any sort of reasonable programming in either environment. "Smart Business Intelligence Solutions" ISBN-10: 0735625808 is a good book on Reporting, Analytics and ETL using integration services. For application development, I have not found a single source yet. I recommend: Apress T-Sql recipes and MSPress SQL Server Internals; also MSpress T-SQL fundamentals for beginners.

One of the great additions to my library. Authors have well laid out the chapters. I liked the chapters on FileStream and the datawarehousing chapters. The contents of the chapters are much advanced and helps guide a programmer to get upto speed on SQL Server 2008 new features such as FileStream, merge, and date functions. I recommend this book for all the medium to advanced level programmers to refer it to for a quick understanding of concepts with examples.
This also takes DBAs to understand the concept around occasionally connected systems and how SQL Server refreshes the data for the end applications such as Mobile applications. The chapter dedicated to Transactions could have been much improved. Again if one wants to write a chapter in transactions, leave a alone a single chapter, a sizable book will not be sufficient.

This book assumes you already know everything. Given that one would thinknit should be organized like a reference book but its not.

If I had not lost my receipt I would return this book and buy "Windows Server 2008 unleashed" after reviewing it thoroughly.
