Pierre Henri Kuaté challenged his blog readers to figure out what he's been up to lately. The recurring guess was that an NHibernate book was in the works. Not only were these guesses correct, but Kuaté has gone as far to team up with Gavin King and Christian Bauer to create the upcoming title NHibernate in Action which is scheduled for an Amazon.com release of July 1, 2007. (If you use NHibernate, you're likely to recognize King and Bauer as being the authors of the original Hibernate in Action.) If July seems a bit far away and you're getting ancy for some published material on NHibernate, you can be one of the first to read it, directly from the publisher, via the Manning Early Access Program.
Although I've been working on my own NHibernate publication, I'm about 500 pages behind their 560 pages, so they're sure to beat me to the punch. Perhaps it's time for me to refocus my attentions towards updating my NHibernate article on CodeProject; at least enjoying the "in print" mention of my article in Windows Developer Power Tools by James Avery and Jim Holmes; and getting on with hacking iRobot Create. Ah well...in any case, I'm very pleased to see a (long overdue) NHibernate publication soon coming to print.
PS - If you're looking for the results of Refactor It! Challenge 3, I appreciate your incredible amount of patience...after getting through a couple weeks of training and other items, I can finally get around to writing up a adequate summary for the state pattern challenge.
