Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook give-away contest

I ran a contest already once. It was for Java 7 New Features Cookbook which I co-reviewed with other people to make it more worthwhile. I’m not sure I did the job very well, but there’s another chance to prove I can make books better with my reviews (or quite the contrary!)

Here comes the chance to take part in a drawing to have your own free copy of Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook. You’ve heard it right – your own free copy.

Book Give-away: Hold a chance to win a free copy of the Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook just by commenting!

For the contest Packt have two copies of Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook to be given away to two lucky winners.

How you can win:

To win your copy of this book, all you need to do is come up with a comment below highlighting the reason “why you would like to win this book”.

Duration of the contest & selection of winners:

The contest is valid from now on for the upcoming 7 (seven) days, and is open to everyone. Winners will be selected on the basis of their comment posted in random order and the selection is done in Clojure and therefore is supposed to be as fair as one could ever dream of.

  1. Greg Szabó says:

    I want to win this book because the kind of applications I design and create in Java or Grails require fine tuning of various concurrent processes (for instance, synchronizing information coming from multiple Quartz jobs). I am sure this book would help me to find the optimum solution for this task.

  2. konradgarus says:

    … because I’m addicted to books. Oh, and it hopefully would help me learn something new on an important subject that I use in my daily job.

  3. Jacek, it would be nice to mention that the winner is expected to write a review for Packt. At least that was the case with the last contest (is it different now?).

  4. I would like read this book ;)

  5. arturro says:

    Because I need one ;)

  6. Because I’m currently learning a lot reading ‘Java Concurrency in Practise’ (which goes into a lot of theory and centered around Java 6) and this book looks like a logical next read (to concentrate on code recipes and to be centered around Java 7)

  7. Klacia says:

    I’ve just finished “Java Concurrency in Practice” and I really want to expand my knowledge about concurrency stuff in Java 7.

  8. Niko says:

    I’m a cs student, but I don’t know much about concurrency. I don’t like that.
    Also, today on 24:01 GMT + 1 I turn 20.

    PS: I love clojure too, but I think the rand function just wraps math.random :P

  9. Because synchronized in Java = Problem, and I will to know better solution for Concurrency in my code.

  10. Damian says:

    It would be nice to read about new and shiny tools in Java 7, so I want it! :)

  11. avus says:

    Because some of my workmates are afraid of Clojure, reluctant to use Scala or learn Groovy, not to mention other programming languages that could make our concurrent code simpler, more robust and less error prone. At least no one is against using Java 7, so there is a chance that a breeze of new Java concurrent goodies will sneak in and allow us to use well desinged and tested implementation instead of in-house, low level solutions.

  12. Martin says:

    Schadenfreude.

    There’s nothing better than reading a book on tough topic for a low level language when you’re using a high level language yourself and the topic suddenly ain’t so tough anymore!

  13. Marek Prochera says:

    Do we have a winner ? ;)

  14. True randomness at random.org said 6 and 1, and thereby pronounced Greg Szabó and Vishwanath Krishnamurthi as the winners. Congratulations!

    Contact me offline with your email addresses so I can forward them to the publisher.

    Sir, by using random.org you violated the rules here. My lawyers are writing a suit.
