SQL Server MVP Deep Dives brings together the world's most highly-regarded SQL Server experts to create a masterful collection of tips, techniques, and experience-driven best practices for SQL Server development and administration. These SQL Server MVPs—53 in all—each selected a topic of great interest to them, and in this unique book, they share their knowledge and passion with you."
Bless the 4 SSIS MVPs who contributed! (Note that Matthew Roche is now a Microsoft employee and no longer an MVP, but still an occasional SSIS blogger.) Learn more from these authors by following their blogs:
