Now we've put all issues of IBDeveloper to Scribd for easy reading and full text search indexing. You know, there are still "all times greatest hits" articles and materials (like one regarding locking in Firebird by Ann W. Harrison in Issue 2).
Moreover, we decided to put the full version of issue 4, which was not released to public before this time. So if you did not read full 4th issue or others, you have a chance now:
- Issue 1 featured article regarding SAVEPOINTS internals, by Vlad Khorsun, Firebird Core developer
- Issue 2 featured article regarding locking by Ann W. Harrison, A Legend
- Issue 3 a lot of cool materials and TPC-R based test InterBase vs Firebird (InterBase lost :))
- Issue 4, full version TPC-C based tests InterBase vs Firebird vs Yaffil
But the interesting fact that it was not the first magazine devoted to InterBase.
In 1997-1998 InterBase Software Corporation published several issues of InterCom magazine. 13 years ago! But still very cool, especially for those who remember those times:
InterCom v01n03, 1997
InterCom v01n01 - old magazine devoted to InterBase, 1997
May be Firebird needs the third attempt to create the lucky magazine (since 3 is the lucky number) which will not gone in 2 years like InterCom and IBDeveloper did?
