A big thank you to everyone who took the time to enter the Head First Objects Cover Model Contest!

Kathy, Bert and I had a great (but hard!) time at lunch today choosing the contest winners. So, without further ado...

CLICK HERE: www.headfirstobjects.com/contest.html

...and congratulations to all our lucky winners!

Dave, Dave, Dave,

You're supposed to be writing a book, not writing poetry

Thanks to all you ranchers who put so much time and effort and passion into your entries!

Bert,

Haven't you been reading all that stuff your wife writes about doing things with PASSION?!?

You didn't really expect me to just type up the names of the winners did you? This is Head First Objects, not Another Boring OO Book, remember?



[ OK, I'm getting back to work on Chapter 11 now...I promise... ]

Johannes,
I'm curious what you mean about Kathy not following her own advice. In what way?

Interesting thing on the announcement page:

"Coming Soon: Alternate Book Covers!"

So, will the Head First books become like Wheaties boxes?

Here's another idea for alternate book covers: personalized covers

Who wouldn't want to be on the cover?

Something like that!

We haven't worked out all the details, but we're definitely going to have some fun with this.
