I’m in a book! Data Professionals at Work2
October 24, 2018 by Kenneth Fisher
A while back a friend of mine, Malathi Mahadevan (b/t), asked me if I’d like to do an interview for a book she was working on. I’ve been interviewed before but never quite like this. She called me up (on skype if I remember correctly) and we visited for a while. It was then transcribed, edited etc until we had a chapter talking about what it’s like to be a Data Professional At Work, which of course is the name of the book. It’s part of Apress Media’s “…At Work” series, and I’m a “Data Professional” so it kind of makes sense. Unfortunately, it turns out I do a much better job with written interviews than verbal. Fortunately, there are a bunch of amazing people involved in this project with lots of interesting things to say. Personally, I can’t wait to get my copy.
Bonus! There will be a couple of book signings at PASS Summit this year. I won’t be there but a bunch of the others will be. Stay tuned for times and locations.
Now, I’ll admit, a signing for a professional book may not seem .. well .. exciting. But it really is. I did one years back when I got bought my copy of SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Volume 2 and I had a great time getting it signed, and still have fun going back and seeing who signed it. If you get the chance take the time and do it.

Cool! It’s in my Safari membership. I just added it to my bookshelf.
