Just another way to learn
By octav on Apr 21, 2008
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.
