Party time


Good news everybody. I’m in a good mood today ;) I’ll explain. First of all, the French edition of SQL Performance Explained is almost done and will ship at the end of the month (pre-order now ;). It has a different name (SQL : Au cœur des performances) but is otherwise the same. So, that triggered some kind of "project done" feeling.

Further, I’ve given a few good trainings recently and looking forward for some more in the next weeks. It’s just awesome when the audience comes up with great questions, but it’s even more awesome if they come up with great conclusions that proof their correct understanding. That triggers a "missing accomplished" feeling.

So, as the pre-sale of the French edition is running on a 10% discount, I though why not giving a general 10% discount to celebrate the French edition? And here it is: ’aucoeur’. It’s only valid for order placed directly at http://sql-performance-explained.com/ (not valid on Amazon) and expires on March 28 (the release date of the French edition).

Further, I’ll repeat the ’retweet to win’ campaign every week during March. It goes like this: I’ll tweet something like ’Retweet this for a chance to win’. After a while, I’ll select one of the retweeters as winner. You can’t win twice (sorry @d_gustafsson). So, watch out, the first giveaway tweet comes soon.
