Kathy Sierra Scores 2B's and 3R's.
Brains and Beauty. (didn't realise she was that pretty!) :roll:
Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic. ( the w is silent and the a short).
What grade to use for crediting spanning the entire length and breadth of Java technology ? A grade far beyond Java Certifications.
Keep going and it just might be a KBE. (It took Bill Gates about 30 years)
kudos for the de-mystifying Head Firsts.

Hmm I've got a problem I printed the article out to let my wife read it, but do I edit the picture out or not. She might get the wrong idea as to why I became a HF groupie.
Maybe if I show a picture of Bert she might become a HF groupie herself

Methinks whoever was interviewing Kathy was flirting,
whereas the Contact pages exhibits an element of Goofiness for all it's,
er, contacts.
I think (can't read Spanish) they are interviewing Richard Monsoon Hafael next but no picture.
Well, enough trouble-making for today.

Well I only understand about half the words, but it looks like they're just pointing out a nifty entry in RMH's blog.

I think they should interview you next, Jim.
And several other Sheriffs, on how to run a Ranch.
JavaRanch may end up with some nice jazzy pictures on it's Contact Page then.
Just joking! Don't ever change.

I like how she's described in at java.net as someone who likes to "think about thinking". I'm fascinated by learning theory but I'm such a hands on individual that I don't think I could do it myself. I'm really thankful we have people like Kathy Sierra in the field who have a keen interest in finding ways not only promote Java, but discover new ways to help people learn it.
I just have to throw this out as well. A lot of the "gurus" in our field (I won't name any names) sometimes come off as a bit full of themselves. I never really get that impression from reading her blogs or bits and pieces of her here and there. I can't help but think that makes people a lot more receptive to what she has to say.
