Coming Up for Air



  • Call Me Crazy, But I'm Writing a Book

    A few weeks ago, I was approached by an acquisition editor with Packt Publishing, asking if I might be interested in working on a book with them. Long story short, I signed the paper work and started working on the title Java 9 Blueprints. Books in Packt’s Blueprints series offer a different project in each chapter, showing each is built, explaining the technologies used, etc. So far, it feels a lot like what I aim for in my blog posts, only longer. The target release is Q1 of next year. I have a lot of work ahead of me. :)
