This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
The time has come for JavaRanch to bring in some new blood to help out with moderating groups and generally keeping the place running. Behind the scenes, we've been taking note of some posters who have already demonstrated great willingness to help out by offering many informative, friendly and downright useful responses to other posters who needed help. We've asked these amazingly helpful people if they'd be willing to take on positions as bartenders here at the ranch, and they've accepted. So without further delay , it's time to introduce the new bartenders you'll be seeing here at JavaRanch. Everyone please welcome: Gregg Bolinger Dan Chisholm Barry Gaunt Max Habibi Tim Holloway Chris Mathews Jason Menard Michael Morris Eric Pascarello Jamie Robertson David Weitzman
Every one of these has been a big asset to the forums they've participated in, and we're looking forward to their continued contribution. Thank you, new bartenders! Very shortly we'll be installing these folks as bartenders in their new places of power, so keep an eye out for changes to our listings in the next few days. (We may also have one or two more bartenders arriving soon once they check their e-mail - we'll announce any new additions as they come up.) Once again, thanks to all the above for your contributions, and welcome to bartenderdom!
