Completed SQL Circuit – Book #29

June 23rd, 2009

Done with the two database books. *phew*. Sidenote: SQL is awesome. I’m going to tackle a little CSS next and learn how to design properly. I suppose I’m a bit hesitant to read three straight technical books, but lately these topics have been on my mind and I wanted to learn. So I started. Eventually I’ll stop. Maybe.

Break From Literature For Technical Books

June 12th, 2009

I started reading Beginning Database Design thinking that it would probably be the greatest book read so far.

And I was pretty much right.

I’m heading to San Francisco this weekend for a little getaway and I’ll be starting a new book. Most likely it will be the companion volume to Beginning Database Design, titled Beginning SQL Queries, but I haven’t made up my mind.

Still ahead of schedule.

Database Design

June 3rd, 2009

I’m jumping the shark a little here and tackling a computer book for book #27. I’ve been using databases for a couple years but have never taken the time to really learn more about the design, implementation, and maintenance of them. Databases excite me, so sue me. 😉
