This week's book giveaways are in the Cloud/Virtualization and Go forums. We're giving away four copies each of Cloud Native Transformation: Practical Patterns for Innovation and The Go Workshop and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Desai Sandeep has now passed the milestone of 1000 posts to JavaRanch. Good ones, too. Desai is a Major Contributor to our OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring Forum, though he extends his help in just about every Forum. Thanks, Desai, for your tireless efforts helping others. It's an honor to have you with us on the Ranch. Congratulations!
