I’ve been quiet for a few months, because “Data modeling Made Simple with PowerDesigner” took over my life. Well, the manuscript has been delivered, and the book will be in print in early November.
The book is a joint effort with renowned data modelling expert Steve Hoberman. We created a PowerDesigner-specific variant of the 2nd edition of his best-selling book “Data Modeling Made Simple”. The intention was to produce a book that, while targeted at data modellers, would be relevant to any user of PowerDesigner. The explanations, examples and exercises are based on data models, but the techniques can also apply to process models, enterprise architecture, etc.
It’s a large book, so I’m afraid it won’t be cheap. You can save 20% if you pre-order at http://www.technicspub.com/product.sc?productId=29&categoryId=1 – using code PD20Promo at the checkout.
