The Winners of Kevin's Book

Holger Prause
Marius Holm

I'd like to thank Kevin for the time he gave us!
Congratulations to all the lucky Winners.
The winners were chosen randomly from all the post that have occured since Tuesday morning. I used a program written by our own Bill Compton.

Ajith won! Cool! I like to see some of the JavaRanch staff win some of the good stuff once in a while.
So what do you guys think? Are you all inspired to go out and buy a copy of Kevin's book? (this is where you are supposed to all say "yes!" and "absolutely!" and "I bought six!" so that the publishers will keep giving us books to give away )
Are there any particular authors and books we should try to line up in the future?

Wow!!
That's a good news for me to begin the day with! ( after I heard about the worst earthquake to hit India since 50 years ). Congratulations to all other winners
A BIG THANKS to Kevin for his very active participation.

Congratulations, Ajith!
Working hard on copying your numerous posts to me learning notes I thought it would be fair if you win something good...
As to me, I am going to buy a couple of Kevin's book...

Well done people. I've really enjoyed the discussion here, and hope lots of people have got useful answers to their questions. Thanks Kevin (and Ajith and all the others who have lent a helping hand).

Congratulations everybody!
As to which books and authors I would like to see: We've already had my favorite author, Martin Fowler here. Of course, I would always enjoy hearing from him again, maybe this time in the "OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring" forum. In the same forum, it would be awesome if we could get some of the Gang of Four, i.e. the authors of the classic "Design Patterns" book. And how about trying to line up some of SUN's original Java guys like James Gosling? Oh yes, another book I really enjoyed reading last year was "The Pragmatic Programmer" by Andrew Hunt and David Thomas. While not a Java book, I think it is a great software engineering book that is also relevant to Java, and this might fit well into the "Process..." forum. Oh, and the three amigos (Booch, Rumbaugh, and Jacobsen) would be very interesting too. I think I'll better stop now... ;-)

Thanks for the book, guys!
Although discussing topics here with knowledgeable people is more than interesting enough, winning a book adds even more spice to it!
Thanks again!
Marius
