I practically did a cart-wheel when the folks at Pearson said that our new IBM Press book on DAD was going to make it to the IBM Innovate Conference.  The authors, Scott Ambler and Mark Lines will be signing the book at the conference bookstore.  If you’re going to be there – be sure to stop by and have a chat and get your book signed.  They will be siging on Wednesday from 12:45-1:15.

You can pre-order the book – (available in hardcopy and ebook) here.  Save 35% by using coupon code: IBM0135
