July 2011 Book Giveaway Winner

97 Things Every Programmer Should Know book cover

Michael's new book

Every month, one of the people who subscribes to my mailing list for Delphi programmers gets randomly selected to win a programming book. This month’s winner is Michael D., who has won a copy of Kevlin Henney’s 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know.

Michael, your book is on its way, and I hope you enjoy it!

This month, subscribers also got some tips on faster code navigation with some default Delphi keyboard shortcuts, a short lesson on a very useful Castalia feature that’s, unfortunately, kind of hidden, and some information about a recent survey I conducted which yielded some very interesting information about the most popular versions of Delphi.

If you missed out this month, sign up for the mailing list and you’ll not only get my newsletter next month, but you’ll also get my PDF 10 Keyboard Shortcuts Every Delphi User Should Know, AND you’ll be eligible to win free programming books for as long as you stay subscribed.

Delphi programmers who use Castalia are more productive and have more fun: They write better code faster with less typing, solve problems and find errors faster, and understand the code they already have better.

      Alister, I’d love to hear your recommendations for books to consider.

For programmers, by a programmer

Hi. My name is Jacob, and I'm the creator of Castalia.

I starting programming in 1986, learning Lightspeed Pascal on a Mac Classic. Today, I'm a professional programmer, teacher, and entrepreneur.

I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science, and I still love Pascal and Delphi.

I believe that writing code is the heart and soul of software development, and I love helping programmers write code more effectively.
