Welcome

Nor can I wait.

Oh, come to think of it, I already have the book. I bought it as one of the early access books.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for letting us be part of your community! We look forward to your feedback.

(edit: I'm waiting for coderanch to give me the "author" status before replying to all your good questions!)

Welcome to the Ranch

I have tried to change your title. Last time I tried anything like that, I got it wrong, so your chances are slim

Thanks for promoting your book. I have listened to Raoul-Gabriel Urma talk on JDK.io. It was quite good. I learned things. I really want this book to learn it all. One request all the talks given by all the book authors if updated on the manning page that will be of great help for us. Thanks once again.
