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.
Hello, everyone! In a few days, Java Ranch will be featuring my book, Taming the Technology Tidal Wave, for their weekly book promotion. "Tidal Wave" is a light-hearted yet practical career guide for everyone who is struggling with trying to stay caught up with the latest technologies. Despite the fact that it was published back in 2004, it is every bit as timely now -- or perhaps I should say, the career advice that I offer in my book is TIMELESS! I've used these same strategies -- "survival tips" -- over and over throughout my 31 year IT career (wow! that's a long time to be a techie!!! ), and have shared them with many other colleagues and friends as well. They really work!
I hope you'll join in the discussion starting Monday about Taming the Technology Tidal Wave ... I look forward to "talking" with you then!

Hello, everyone! Let's continue the discussion about my book in the Jobs Discussion forum under the thread "Taming the Technology Tidal Wave: Practical Career Advice for IT Professionals". Hope to see you there!
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
