I'm one of many hidden people whom you have unknownly helped through your books and tutorials. I read your first book ~9 years back and have been purchasing all interview versions (.net/sql/architecture/project management etc.) since then. Your book always tell me what i'm missing in terms of technology and where I need to upgrade. I like simple language of the book and aspects it covers. It must have taken a lot of committment and giving attitude when you must have started this without any return (it is missing in almost all the developers). Keep it up and I appreciate your contribution to software development fraternity.
Prob because all the examples on the one page I read were completely wrong. I would suggest reading the Go4 and not using Shiv's design patterns pages.
Shiv - apologies if this feels like its a personal rant, but you shouldn't post stuff up that could cause others to fail in interviews etc. You need to have someone check your examples first before posting.
@handled1: What's wrong in the design patterns examples. They are so easy to understand. It up to you how to implement it in your project.
And I feel so good from going through all his tutorials and design patterns and because of that right now I'm working in a very good MNC Company.
If you think there is something wrong, then why don't you mail him back, so that he can make the necessary changes and everyone get benefit from it.
Sexist phrases in your tutorials like "in the UI layer we would like to see this value as a check box which shows “checked” (true) for male and “unchecked” for female", which imply that being female is "false".
