Last week, I did a presentation for the Java Users Group of Wellington, New Zealand. The meeting went well, with standing-room-only attendance - the Java developers of Wellington are a great bunch! For anyone interested, some more details about the talk, as well as the slides of the presentation can be found here: http://jug.wellington.net.nz/talk200710.html
The Java Power Tools book is now nearing completion. It's currently being reviewed, and I have done some major reorganizing of the contents. All the important content is still there, and there is some cool extra stuff like a new chapter on the Hudson continuous integration tool. Review so far are very positive! Check out the latest table of contents here.
