Pragmatic Book - signed by the Author

My advisor Dr. Venkat Subramaniam recently published his second book "Practices of an Agile Developer", his first being ".NET Gotchas". I had the privilege of getting a copy of the book - personally signed by the Author! How often does that happen?

Venkat is also an accomplished speaker and is a regular on the No Fluff Just Stuff (NFJS) tour, .NET User Groups, Java User Groups and the C# SIG. He is the founder of AgileDeveloper.com: a training and consulting firm that specializes in a wide range of technologies: OO, .NET, Java, Ruby...the list goes on :) Venkat is also an adjunct professor at the University of Houston (that's how I know him). He also has a blog!

He is a great guy to be with and I have certainly learnt a lot interacting with him. Thanks for the book Venkat!
