Welcome, Cay. I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your Java 8 for the Really Impatient book. I'm sure the Core Java book is great, too, and wish you the best of success with it.

Hi and thanks for having me again!

I am on sabbatical in Switzerland, so I may not be awake when most of you are posting, but I'll catch up when I get up :-)

Cheers,

Cay

Welcome Cay! It's a thrilling experience having you here. I started learning Java with the Core Java series and it was awesome! I still recommend it to others. Thank you for the awesome book.
