Subject At last - our Firebird book
Author Helen Borrie
Hi all,
I'm pleased to tell you that I have exchanged contracts with APress
( to write and publish "User's Guide to the Firebird
SQL Database". The manuscript deadline is mid-November. I believe APress
intends to post the flyers and the outline on its website late in June.

No, it's not the "magnum opus" that the original (1700-page) IBDH was going
to be. That one is for another season. This book will be about 700 pages
and I will try very hard to make it the "real insider" book that we planned
back in times past. It will take the same practical approach that was
visualised for the IBDH and will launch the new Firebird sample database -
a real C/S database this time around, not a conversion from a bunch of
crusty old Paradox tables. (If I can avoid distractions over the next two
weeks, those doing my Database Design segments at the Fulda conference will
get a foretaste of the new fdb!)

Celebrate with me!


See you at the First European Firebird Conference in May in Fulda,
