Giveaway result

We've just finished tallying up our votes for the Great Giveaway and we are pleased to announce that the winner is Glenn Goodrich. We had enough entries to make the contest worthwhile and we decided to give prizes for every story. Everyone got one of the books in the original list and the 2nd place also got Visual Studio Team System. You see? I told you that you should tell us your story.

Some people asked if there will be a contest where they could submit horror stories instead of success stories. Well, I'm considering running a contest for that, but I'm afraid the prize will be limited to a bag of Doritos.

Glenn runs a very nice blog and his story, which will be posted here tomorrow, shows that the quest for a better way to develop applications or, in broader terms, the constant pursuit of improvement should be in our DNA.

I'll quote from his story:

... Head First Design Patterns, which was another huge A-HA! moment for my development career. I now read blogs everyday and have at least two books going at any moment in time. I read about Continuous Integration and CI Factory, as well as NHibernate and other OR/M frameworks. This was my first steps into Continuous Improvement.
...I was relaxed on demo day, confident the software was solid. I had no anxiety about getting off the beaten path, which was new for me.

Congratulations to Glenn, we are very happy that the prizes are being given to such deserving hands. You make us proud, Glenn.

Be sure to check back tomorrow with the full story.
