This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm working on a book, currently titled Agile Java: Crafting Code with Test-Driven Development (TDD). It is a book on learning Java from the ground up, using TDD as the driver. The book is slated to be published by Prentice Hall around late summer, timed to coincide with the release of Java 1.5 (which the book uses). I'm looking for reviewers, inexperienced in Java, that are interested in learning to program in Java and are willing to devote the time to work through the book. If you're interested, please send me a note that includes a bit of background on yourself. thanks, Jeff L. Jeff.Langr@LangrSoft.com [ February 11, 2004: Message edited by: Jeff Langr ]
Are you also interested in people experienced in Java but wanting to learn TDD and the new features of Tiger properly? If so I'd be happy to lend a hand.

Greetings Jeroen, Certainly. The book doesn't explicitly separate out most of the tiger functionality (but there are going to be a couple chapters later on that go into more detail on some of the new features such as generics; I've not written those yet). The downside is that you'll be wading through a good aount of "introductory" material; you'll still learn some things and TDD as well. If you're interested, go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/testdrivenjava and sign up; I'll approve the request when I see it. Regards, Jeff [ February 12, 2004: Message edited by: Jeff Langr ]
