As if preparing for SQL Server Days wasn’t sufficient to keep me fully occupied, I was once again involved in the process of book publication…
My role was Technical Reviewer so I read and commented on all chapters regarding their technical content. But that’s not all, I also pointed out typos, my drive to perfection can’t just ignore those
So if you’re (relatively) new to SQL Server Reporting Services this should be a good read for you.
The book is mainly aimed at report developers though I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt if administrators had a read through it too. In fact, a couple of the chapters contain material that should be known by every SQL admin who needs to support BI deployments.
The book starts with the basics and gradually builds up to designing more complex reports. This gives everyone a good chance to understand the basics before delving into more complex material. By the end of chapter 6 you’ll have used all components needed for SSRS report development, which is a good thing!
So go out, get a copy and start reading about John Kirkland’s tale!
