Winning a book in Twitter

Filed under: .NET, Software Architecture, Twitter — ajlopez @ 10:44 am

Yesterday, I received a Tweet, saying that if you RT an specific message from @tobint you could win a book from Microsoft. Two winners would be selected: USA and International. Delivered via Amazon. I retwitted the message, and then…..  surprise! I won! (my entry was randomly selected). Tobin was working from Starbucks,  at his night, I guess (Redmond? another place?). Early in this morning, I received:

The book is CLR Via C# 3rd Edition (a new edition) by Jeffrey Richter

Product description:

Dig deep and master the intricacies of the common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework 4.0. Written by a highly regarded programming expert and consultant to the Microsoft® .NET team, this guide is ideal for developers building any kind of application-including Microsoft® ASP.NET, Windows® Forms, Microsoft® SQL Server®, Web services, and console applications. You’ll get hands-on instruction and extensive C# code samples to help you tackle the tough topics and develop high-performance applications.

Tobin Titus profile at Twitter:

You can visit his personal site Abstract Syntax

Twitter is an astounding experience for me. I can share info, knowledge, links, jokes, moods, with interesting people, in my city, Buenos Aires, in my country, Argentine, or all around the world.

Thanks Tobin!
