What is the best technical book you've read recently?

I have read a few, but recently, I say "Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch. I use Java a lot as my main programming language and this book is a great source of knowledge, great tips, and eye openers. From enumerates usage, to equals and hashcode override (even wrote a small article on this on my blog), to proper exception handling. I will keep this one on my shelf.

What is the language or tool that you're most excited about using at the moment?

Right now, I am trying out Spring MVC and doing some experiments with appfuse prototypes. I really like the idea to have a "standard" skeleton to make me started, and develop from there, giving me the flexibility to try out different frameworks.


My name is João Lemos and I am a portuguese software developer. My main interests are web applications development, agile methodologies, and almost everything that can help me develop better solutions. I also host a blog:
