Glad to be on board.

One of the things I talk about in the book is checking out the culture and values of a company when looking for a job. Have a look at page 279.

I'll be glad to answer any questions you have on the book.

Thanks.

Joe

Incidentally, Amazon is taking pre-orders, and we expect them to start shipping sometime in the first week of May.

On the other hand, Addison-Wesley has the book in stock, and you can order it directly from them at:

Addison-Wesley web page for The Software Development Edge

You can also read a sample chapter on the A-W site.

Thanks.

Don't really have anything to ask... just saw your biography, and thought that I'll say "hi". I'm a fellow Alumni, Cooper Union, also in Chemical Engineering...

Joe, I'm a bit later... ... BChe '87.

For everyone else whose wondering: This is not a small thing. It is very rare that I find a fellow CU alumni, who also majored in Chemical Engineering. In my graduating class, we had a total of 7 BChe graduates !!
