ANNOUNCE: Just Enough Java: Workshop-on-a-DVD coming in 2006

- You don't have to know everything about Java to work on an API written in that language.

- You need to know "just enough Java" to decode source files and actually start writing, not just formatting the programmer's notes.

Now you can learn all you really need to know about Java to create useful documentation.

Third Wave Studios, publisher of the very popular "Documenting APIs and SDKs: Workshop-on-a-DVD", is pleased to announce that we will be publishing a companion product entitled, "Just Enough Java" in 2006.

This new multiple DVD and workbook package will capture all of the useful information and rich interaction from the unique live workshop created by Gordon & Gordon and presented by Manuel Gordon.

"Just Enough Java" will begin shipping in 2006, but you can pre-order it now for only US$266.77 instead of $399.95. That's a 33% discount!
