This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Steve, I'd like to encourage you to sign up for the nitpicking: it is fun AND seems to put some programming order in your brain, at least sometimes in mine And also: each assignment builds up for the next one, so it seems to me; you will be able to think of solutions for a new assignment somewhat easier AFTER you sweated through all the assignments before that one, because you learn heaps of things during nitpicking. I have to repeat: it is a lot of sweaty work, but helpful and real fun, too! Juliane (also sweating over the next assignment)

The 'Big Rush' is that i'm supposed to be able to program, as I work a lot with xsl, and my role at the place I work is that of a junior-software developer. But I should be walking around with face paint and a bright red plastic ball on my nose, as i'm more akin to a joker than a programmer. [ December 01, 2002: Message edited by: Steve Jensen ]

Oooo. That's a bad spot to be in. Steve, why did you change your displayed name to Parmar? That doesn't fit into the naming policy guidelines. Please change it back. [ December 01, 2002: Message edited by: Marilyn de Queiroz ]

Oop, sorry. I didn't realise that i'd done that. I meant to change somehting else in my profile. Anyway, i've changed it back. I was also wondering, I paid up and joined today, and got the confirmation e-mail. When will i qualify for some nitpicking then? My problem with java is a strange one. I sort of understand what is going on, in theory, but in practice, I don't have much of a clue.
Welcome in, Steve, good luck with your Java-1a. Tell the "suits" that you are doing an advanced total hands-on course in "Reengineering Object Oriented Systems", and mention the words "refactoring", "optimization", and similar. You will be promoted to "GURU III" within a few months. BTW that Java-1a above is not a typo. That's life on the ranch. -Barry [ December 01, 2002: Message edited by: Barry Gaunt ]
