Thanks Henry, we're really excited to have this book out! Java 8 is full of lots of useful new features, especially lambdas/streams, which make more complex API's, like Concurrency/NIO.2 much easier to use!

"Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff", hmm those names seem somewhat familiar to me, where have I heard them before, oh that's right ... here every day on CodeRanch!

Have lots of fun with the promo guys (that's the unisex version of 'guys').

There's actually three of us on the book promo team and we assign running promos based on availability and lack of conflicts. For example, Henry has been a published author for many years. We've made sure not to schedule him to run any promos on the topics of his books.

Hello,

In which section of this forum would be most appropriate to post questions about the book content ?


Warm Regards,
Nikki

Hi Nikolay Totomanov,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Nikolay Totomanov wrote:In which section of this forum would be most appropriate to post questions about the book content ?

It depends. If you have a question about the study guide for the OCPJP certification exam, the OCPJP forum is the most appropriate. If it's about the study guide for the OCAJP certification exam, you want to post your questions in the OCAJP forum.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
