Howdy Pardners,
We're doing our famous Tom Sawyer act here... we're looking for a few volunteers to have some fun and enjoy a small amount of fame! We are about to publish a new O'Reilly book for programmers new to OO and Java. If you want to find out more about the book you can visit
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/hfjava/desc.html
The book is called 'Head First Java'.
Anyway, it's a really fun book, and includes lots of puzzles and exercises! We've had great tech editors on the book, but now we need a few brave, last-minute puzzle testers. If you'd like to review a few Java related puzzles and exercises and give us your feedback, we'll list you as a reviewer in the book, (like I said, a small amount of fame, in 9 pt. type ).
If you'd like to help out, please send us an email - sometimes we miss posts. Send your offer to either bert.bates@wickedlysmart.com or kathy.sierra@wickedlysmart.com.
Many thanks!
Bert and Kathy
perpetrators,
Head First Java
(May 2003, O'Reilly)
p.s. - The current Java newsletter has an example of one of the puzzles, so you can look it over to see what you're getting yourself into

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Of course this is really a secret recruiting campaign for some hush, hush, wink, wink, say-no -more job for M, innit?

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
