PowerShell Deep Dives / SQL Server PowerShell Cookbook

This has truly been a busy and exciting year for me. I’ve been blessed to have not one, but two books, in the works.

The PowerShell Deep Dives project is a community-written book on 300 level PowerShell topics. With topics ranging from administration, scripting, to PowerShell Platforms, there is definitely something for everyone. This book will be published by Manning, and all royalties will go to charity. Simply said, all the authors in this book will be contributing their time for charity.

I am very happy and humbled to say my abstract for a chapter for the PowerShell Deep Dives book has been accepted. To say that I will be part of this project is both an honor and a pleasure.

In no particular order, here are the authors of the PowerShell Deep Dives book.If I missed anyone, or if there are incorrect blogs/twitter handles, please let me know.
