Happy Holidays! As a gift to everyone, PACKT Publishing has put the e-book version of my SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services Cookbook on sale for just $5.
Yes, that’s right, for the same price as a pumpkin spice chai tea latte with extra whip cream, and a quick trip to http://bit.ly/ssrscook, you could be reading this magnificent tome of wisdom.
Now, I can year some of you going “but Robert, SQL Server 2017 is out now, is this still relevant?” Yes, absolutely! Very few changes were made to the 2017 version of SSRS, so everything in this book is just as valid.
And it’s not just my book that is on sale, all the e-books at PACKT are on sale for the same low low price. So after you get done adding the SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services Cookbook to your shopping cart, be sure to check out the other awesome titles on PACKT Publishing.
This book, by the way, makes an excellent companion to two of my Pluralsight courses.
The SQL Server Reporting Services Playbook, https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/sql-server-reporting-playbook, is designed for people who are totally new to SSRS and need to get up to speed FAST.
Already know SSRS, and just want to learn what’s new with SSRS 2016? Then my appropriately named What’s New in SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services course, https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/sql-server-2016-reporting-services, is just the thing for you. It goes over just the new features in SSRS 2016 (and still applicable to 2017) and does it fast. With this short course you can be up and running with 2016/2017.
What? You don’t have a Pluralsight subscription? Well I’m shocked, but OK I can help you out. Just send me an email to
and I can fix you up with a code good for 30 days during which you can watch my courses, or any of the fine courses at Pluralsight. (If you want to see all my courses, just click the About Me link at the top, or go to http://arcanecode.me).
If you have some free time during the holiday season, and want to avoid the in-laws, then curling up with a great book (like the SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services Cookbook) beside the yuletide fire can be a great way to spend your time!
