This week's book giveaway is in the Beginning Java forum. We're giving away four copies of Getting started with Java programming language and have Ashish Sarin & J Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been at one time or another, a PHP (web application) developer, Java (desktop) developer, and now looking at the iOS platform. I do have a good background in C although I have not developed professionally with it.
What can I expect from your book to address my current skillset? I typically do better when something is taught from a "programmer's perspective".
