I met Kevlin Henny back in 2007 at the PHPUK Conference in London. (For a year or so I called him Kevin Hennly until I finally got it right) One day out of the blue, Kevlin droped me an email and invites me to participate in a new project he’s working on for O’Reilly, a collaborative book called “97 Things Every Programmer Should Know“. Not being one who is ever short of advice and opinions to give, I gladly submitted two entries that eventually made their way through the editing process and into the final book.
While the wiki has been online and publically available for some time now (my two entries are “A Comment on Comments” and “Don’t Touch That Code!“) I had not seen the final print edition until yesterday when it arrived in my mail box.
I’m happy to say that once again, I am in print, this time, from O’Reilly. It is a landmark book for 2 reasons. First, it is the first time I’ve been published by O’Reilly.
As mentioned before, the entire book is available in wiki form over at the O’Reilly site, however, I know you are going to want a dead tree edition of this tome of great knowledge to carry with you and impress your co-workers.
Thanks Kevlin for thinking of me on this project.
Until next time,
I <3 |K
