About JAL:

Retired Sysop CompuServe Internet Publishing Forum (Acoustic coupler 300 baud required) where I objected to the statement that "Java would never be used for a real application", then wrote and uploaded the "Java Address Book" application which included a quick-sort algorithm implemented in Java.
Co-Author "Visual Cafe for Java Explorer, Database Development Edition" Coriolis 1998.
Author of a popular tutorial on Object Oriented Programming in C# (2003). At the time, the prevailing teaching method was "class as cookie cutter". Looking for a better teaching analogy, I introduced the concept of class as blueprint.
