Séance de dédicace groupée

Vous l'avez certainement lu dans tous les magasines, la rentrée littéraire 2010 ce n'est ni Michel Houellebecq ni Amélie Nothomb, mais bel et bien la seconde édition de Java EE 6 (aux éditions Apress). Pour fêter cet évènement inter galactique, je m'associe à Emmanuel Bernard (Hibernate Search in Action aux éditions Manning) et Arnaud Héritier (Maven aux éditions Pearson) pour une séance de dédicace groupée à la librairie Le Monde en Tique. Vous aurez ainsi l'honneur et le privilège de rencontrer vos idoles, d'acheter leur superbe ouvrage, de vous les faire dédicacer, de boire un verre et de papoter de tout et de rien.

A few weeks ago, Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine asked me for an interview. My book has been out for a couple of month now, Java EE 6 is getting hot, GlassFish V3 is closed to final, the Paris JUG is doing well, I’ve recently been nominated Java Champion, JSR 299 and 330 are working hand in hand, the Cast Codeurs podcast is a success, summer and vacations are on their way… it was time to have a break, a nice lunch with Alexis, a few glasses of wine, and have a chat. So if you want to know a little bit more about all that, you can listen to the podcast or/and read the transcription of it. GlassFish Podcast Podcast transcription Thanks Alexis
