Writing… done

Today, Chet sent the last chapters of our book to the publisher. Apparently we are now entering the most dreaded phase: fixing all the small problems that remain in the text. We’ll see how it goes over the next few weeks but I’m glad we made it so far. And I’m pretty sure Chet, and his family’s, are drunk right now celebrating the end of this ordeal

    The only question remaining is… when will we be able to buy it?

  2. Lars Westergren says:

    It’s supposed to be available for Java One (i.e beginning of May). I’ll be there, and I’m going to buy it.

  6. If you want a “beta tester” for your book, let me know. I’ll do it for a free copy.

    Stephen: You missed the beta phase :) We offered people to become reviewers on the Filthy Rich Clients Yahoo! group a few months ago. Thanks for the offer though!
