There are over 800 pages in this third edition of the Java Cookbook. The book states that it is not for beginners, and that is correct.  While some basics of Java are covered in order to move on to other topics, this is not a book for learning Java. Incidentally, the book includes a great resources section including many books for learning Java and general programming.

As you can see from the table of contents, this is a very thorough book covering many topics. I liked the format of “Problem”, “Solution”, and “Discussion”, however, it doesn’t “read” like a book. These are “recipes” lumped together by topic, but not necessarily sequential.  It made it hard for me to either browse the book or find any one particular problem.

The Java Cookbook is filled with loads of examples and sample code. There are tons of solutions to be found. I found it incredibly thorough, but very dry and a bit difficult to navigate.

(Not So) Super Secret Discount Code for IBM Connect 2017

Okay, it’s a secret in that I’m not blogging it, but it’s not so secret, in that all you have to do is reach out to me ( @IamKathyBrown on most social media ) or any other IBM Champion of your choice, for a $100 discount to attend IBM Connect 2017. If you read this in time, you can also listen to the ICS Community call this morning at 10AM ET (link), where they will discuss “What To Expect at IBM Connect”.  If you miss it, they usually record it.

What’s Plasti Dip And How Did You Do That?
Wed, Dec 7th 2016 9:15p   Kathy Brown
I recently plasti-dipped my side mirror caps on my new MINI.  I posted pics in various places online and several people asked “What’s Plasti Dip?” So, PlastiDip is “an air-dry rubber coating”.  Originally used to cover tool handles by dipping them in the substance.  Then people started dipping their car tire rims, then other parts of the car.  PlastiDip now comes in cans, so you can spray it on almost anything.  Why is it so great?  Because it peels off.  Dec

I Got a New Ride

The Background: I’ve never had a fancy car.  Cars aren’t really my thing, so I always chose utility, safety, price, etc.  I also have what I jokingly call “car dyslexia”.  I can never remember or distinguish between anyone’s cars.  Sure, I can tell the difference between a sedan and a truck, but all sedans look the same to me. My first car was an ’86 Honda Accord manual hatchback in “champagne”.  It was high school, the car was used and afford
