I spent a few years writing down my thoughts about how one should approach problems. If you're looking for a how-to guide, a cookbook, or a reference this book is not for you. If you want to learn by challenging the way you think, pick up a copy.
I just finished my presentation at this year's Velocity Conference. Thank you all for the warm reception and the positive feedback. This year's conference is going to be awesome. If you didn't make it this year make sure you sign up early next year; Velocity is not an event to be missed. If you want some more scalability goodness this year in conference form, consider attending Surge; it's going to kick ass.
