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.
Check out the latest posting on my my Java.net blog!. While we wait for more folks to join our research group, we'll continue looking at various different bleeding edge open-source technologies. The first set being the NOSQL databases Hadoop, Cassandra, and Voldemort.
