Reading list for the week – 19/09/11

I am a great fan of John Sansom’s (b | t) “Something for the Weekend” series. Every Friday John posts some of the very interesting articles related to SQL Server that were posted during a particular week. One can get a weekly digest of all news related to SQL Server and other interesting topics all in one place. That is the reason why his posts are the best way of sharing knowledge and they are quite famous as well.

Reading List

Each one of us spend time reading articles everyday. Even I do. Usually I share the interesting ones on Twitter. While I was reading John’s recent post yesterday, I thought even I should share the articles that I read, on my blog. This acts as a good reference for me to revisit sometime later and you may also find them useful.

Inspired by John’s idea, starting today I am starting a new weekly series called “Reading  list for the week”. Every Monday I will post a Reading List which I plan to read during the week. Here I go with this week’s links.

Happy learning!
