I hope your Christmas holidays were also as recreative as mine were although I had a lot of university work to do and still I haven't finished all of it. I'm really looking forward to February because in that month I'm going to post a lot of code and new developing-experiences since I have got a lot of new books for Christmas. This post will be a short one and I only want to list my presies which I got. Here we go:
- Java für Windows
- Cocoon 2 und Tomcat
- Scrum – Agiles Projektmanagement erfolgreich einsetzen
So that's about it although I bought myself a book a couple of weeks ago about the NetBeans Platform. This is also the book which I'm currently reading. It's about developing a RCP Application on top of the NetBeans Platform. It's very well written I've already learned about the Platform's architecture, the concept about the Module System, Actions, Application design, the Lookup concept, the data-representation and currently I'm reading about how to create graphical components such as custom dialogs, wizards and Multi View Top Components. The next chapter is about the Visual Library which I really look forward to learn about.
- NetBeans Platform 6 – Rich-Client-Entwicklung mit Java
In other news. Check out this website. It provides 24 new german developing books by Entwickler Press (=publisher). This was a Christmas present from the mentioned publisher but each book only was online for one day. A very friendly developer put those books on a public share so now you will be able to download them whenever you want. Also check out this message about the collaboration work from my university (TU-Vienna) and the MSDN AA and how you (all TU-students) will be able to download free MS Software (e.g. Visual Studio 2008 !!!!!!) Hurray!!!!
