Kudos to Chris Adamson
Few years ago, I was teaching Java in universities in Brazil, spending all my days and nights studying and thinking on how to become a better teacher and how to become a better Java professional. I was not much than an enthusiast Java developer full of dreams on how to transform the world through the Java technology.... a lot to say, a lot to discuss and to learn and to teach..
One day a new website poped up in my screen: java.net and I requested to be a blogger on that.
The one who gave me this opportunity was Chris Adamson, as I believe he did for several other prospective web writers. It was a very important milestone in my carrier, and the support I received from Chris during all these years just proved the great person and great professional he is.
Chris: good luck my friend, I am sure the change is for the best and I hope to hear great news from your next ventures - see you in the Java community :)
