This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
A Jumpin JForum Day to y'all. That's right. Can you believe it has been nine years since we went live with the JForum software here at the Ranch? You can read about past years features here. This year we have two shiny new features.
A new user profile We've modernized the user profile page. It's a full-width page with a bunch of new features. If you already have a profile picture set up, the most exciting part in the new profile page would be the space for a cover picture - a large canvas on top of your profile picture that you can fill with an image of your choice. Do you know that the 'biography' part of your profile supports BB tags? With a bit of creativity, you can do a lot of cool things in that space. Click on "my profile" and then "view public profile" to see your profile. Or just click here.
Scavenger Hunt On your user profile screen, is a new feature - a scavenger hunt! You start out with the greenhorn scavenger hunt. If you've been around a while, you have most of the items. A couple won't be marked off yet as we weren't tracking that info until now. It won't be long before you've done them again. Then you get a green check next to the greenhorn scavenger hunt and go on to the ranch hand scavenger hunt. That one is a bit more challenging. And if you are a Rancher, guess what? There is a Rancher scavenger hunt too.
