Working under the wire here to get all our book signings finalized – tough to do at this time of the year.  Mark your calendars and do some meet and greet with the authors.  They love talking about their areas of expertise and hearing from you.

As an FYI – Sir Tim Berners-Lee is the mastermind behind the Internet!  YEP!  TimBL invented the World Wide Wide.  Amazing chance to get his “John Hancock” and read his book the old-fashioned way – hard copy.

Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web

Tim Berners-Lee


A second edition of a book can be an incredible amount of work.  Our recently published IBM Press book,  An Introduction to IMS, Second Edition, is no exception.  In fact it took a village of authors –  Barbara Klein, Richard Alan Long, Kenneth Ray Blackman, Diane Lynne Goff, Stephen Paul Nathan, Moira McFadden Lanyi, Margaret M. Wilson, John Butterweck, Sandra L. Sherrill – to update the book.  At over 550 pages – it’s a big effort, packed with great content.

Given the move to ebooks – this book was going to be pure “e” all the way.  So if you want it on your e-reader or PDF form – you are all set.  The publisher has decided to also deliver this book in hardcopy – but that’s a few months away.

Version 12?  Version 11?  Version 10?  it’s all there for you.

More than a complete tutorial, this book provides up-to-date examples, cases, problems, solutions, and a complete glossary of IMS terminology. Prerequisite reading for the current IBM IMS Mastery Certificate Program, it reflects major recent enhancements such as dynamic information generation; new access, interoperability and development tools; improved SOA support, and much more. Whether you’re a DBA, database developer, or system programmer, it brings together all the knowledge you’ll need to succeed with IMS in today’s mission-critical environments
