Manning Publications just recently announced the book SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Volume 2. SQLHA’s Allan Hirt contributed one chapter (Chapter 7 – “Increasing availability through testing”). Besides the fact that the book contains content from some of the top SQL Server folks in the world (63 of them!), the profits from the book will go to benefit Operation Smile.

The book will be released in time to be available at the PASS Summit 2011 in Seattle (it’ll be in the bookstore Tuesday, October 11). There will be two book signings at PASS:

  • Wednesday, October 12 from 1:00 – 1:30 PM
  • Friday, October 14 from 7:15 – 8:00 AM
