Just another way to learn

I remember, while growing up and going through school, having to study for quizzes. Some were scheduled, others impromptu, but no matter what was the circumstance, I recall having a knot in my stomach in anticipation of the results. Most of the quizzes that I take nowadays have to do with testing my knowledge and the stakes don't seem that high. I look at the new quiz sponsored by the NetBeans team as an opportunity to keep in touch with the language that I came to love and challenge my technical skills.

It is worth mentioning that participating in this quiz can be rewarding in more ways than just stimulating your intelligence and helping you learn. Prizes are awarded weekly and you can win more than once. My only problem is that I am not a legal resident of India and hence I am not eligible to win :(

To take the quiz, just download NetBeans, use its update center to download the plugin (Tools | Plugins  from the main menu and then look the "quiz" under Avaliable Plugins) and you are ready to go. To re-launch the quiz, use Help | NetBeans Quiz.

Great stuff to finally witness the best methods and practices to programming using the NetBeans IDE. My old school did impressive linking of checked out object modules, obj files. We real-time programmers in the AWACS, Satillite, GPS, Missile tracking, Army Command and Control witnessed spetacular results, signed away the invention, took the money, changed companies every six months or so, 200,000 lines of checked out code in assembly language produced in 5 years. I do about 30% of that amount in IDE's in four(4) hours. Look no linkers...dozaone
