This week's book giveaways are in the iOS and Features new in Java 8 forums. We're giving away four copies each of Barcodes with iOS: Bringing together the digital and physical worlds and Core Java for the Impatient and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
I am preparing for SCWCD but very discouraged due to lack of hands-on experiences. The book, HFSJ, doesn't offer much. Can anyone suggest any suitable project ideas that I can use to practice so that I can remember the required materials?
