Hello Kishori,

Congratulations on the books.
Which topic did you find most challenging to write about and how have you gone about to make sure the reader easily understands that topic?

Hello Kondwani,
It is hard to pick one topic that was the hardest to write. However, I will pick The Time API in Java 8. It seems very simple to just thinking about the topic itself. Even a 5th grader should know how to manipulate dates and times. The difficulty was in introducing the concept of time, not discussing the Java API. I did a lot of research on time evolution. Read over 500 pages that were scholarly writings on timekeeping and different types of calendar systems. Finally, got the plot to write. It took me about 2 months to write that chapter - spending most of my time reading.
