I drew an image for the blog today. It was a very high-tech project, created using colored pencils and a Sharpie on cheap paper, and photographed using my Android phone, lol.

I’m pretty enthusiastic about the books I’ve lined up to read this summer. Many of them aren’t actual real books yet, they’re part of the Manning early access program (MEAP).
The first two I’m reading together because they complement each other:
- Functional Programming in Scala by Paul Chiusano and Rúnar Bjarnason (MEAP)
- Play for Scala by Peter Hilton, Erik Bakker, and Francisco Canedo (MEAP)
The next is just because it looked really interesting:
- Big Data by Nathan Marz and James Warren (MEAP)
Can you tell that I had a coupon code?
Other books lined up to go after the above are Android in Practice, Akka in Action, The Well-Grounded Java Developer, and a Cassandra book that’s a little outdated but should still be good.
