VMworld: SRM 5.0 Pre-Publication Edition Available

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

I’m pleased to announce that my a limited pre-publication or “rough cut” of my SRM 5.0 book will be available to purchase at VMworld in a hard copy format. You will need to be quick on your feet as there are only 200 copies of the book available. I understand a 30% discount will apply… and that anyone buying the book will qualify for a free digital download of the final work when it eventually GA’s.

I’m so pleased about this – as I think this a bit of scoup for me. Readers will know that RTFM generally has the most detailed coverage of new technologies from VMware on the “day-of-the-download”. Generally those works are free or at a very reasonable cost. I think this is the first time I’ve had something out before the actual GA of the product itself (that’s because I would normally have to respect beta NDAs). This time around the tie up with the VMware Press has allowed something I previously wouldn’t been able to do.

The other thing to mention is that there is a number of gatherings to mark the event. So you catch me at the vMeetUp at the Bloggers Lounge at VMworld between 10-11 on Monday. There will lots of luminaries from the VMware Community there as well.

I will be doing a book signing event on Wednesday, 1.00-1.30pm. So grab a copy of the book when you can, and get me to sign it at the book signing. Remember every book signed by me doubles its value on Ebay :-p

You can see preview chapters of the books in the VMware Press here:

Also there is a sweepstake that VMware Press is running to win a 3-book library of the three inaugural books that have been written for the VMware Press launch.
