Take a Quiz to Win a Copy of Masoud Kalali's "GlassFish Security"
Masoud Kalali is giving away three copies of his new book, GlassFish Security (published by Packt Publishing). To be among the winners, you have to successfully complete a five question quiz that's based on the content of Chapter 3 of the book, "Designing and Developing Secure Java EE Applications."
Masoud says he'll
"give away some copies of the book to 3 lucky winners who answered all 5 questions correctly. We will give away 1 paper copy to someone in USA or Europe and two e-books to any lucky winner either in those two continent or not. It wont take more than 2-3 minutes to answer the questions and you will get the chance to receive a copy of the book when I draw the winners on October 10th."
So, you've got less than two weeks to download Chapter 3, understand it, and take the quiz.
A final note: Masoud discovered that his quiz software has some problems with Firefox; he advises that you "please go with Google Chrome or Apple Safari."
