You can find the TOC here.

That page also has a link to a sample chapter for you to check the book out.

Hi Pete,

Thanks, the chapter looks nice, just read parts of it. Obviously my attention went to search for code examples. Do other chapters have more examples. Reason asking is some parts in this chapter handle the reporting of issues. This works fine in our organisation. It would just be nice to see a bit more in practical code examples what I can do to prevent the issues.

thanks,
friso

Frisode,

I guess the answer to your question is that each chapter has the "appropriate" amount of code examples to explain clearly what is being discussed. Depending on the chapter contents, some chapters have more code than others!

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for explaining the rules, but I am not that bothered of being eligible for the draw. I think Pete has written a good book, and I will take a look in the bookshops when available.

Kind regards, and all the best to Pete,

friso
