Rob Richards' Blog:
We Have A Winner
May 09, 2006 @ 05:48:22

Rob Richards of the CDATA Zone Blog has chosen his winner in the contest for a copy of the book he offered, Pro PHP XML and Web Services - Brian Wurster from Arlington, Virginia.

I received a large number of entries (more than expected), but did read every single one of them. The majority were very well done and ranged from someone threatening to bite their own leg off (nice picture btw) to the other extreme of threatening to beat with me a stick (was very funny if you happen to be familiar with Theo Schlossnagle's post for a junior programmer). Both of these were among the finalists, but the entry finally chosen stood out a bit more than the rest.

What really set this entry apart was the creativity. The entry was submitted as a lone PHP script. Lucky for Brian it ran without errors because there was no way I was going to read all that code :), other than to notice it used the new PHP 5 OO features.

Congrats to Brian and if you'd like to check out more of this book yourself, head over to the official APress page for the book. There's an overview, info about the author, and a sample chapter to get an idea of what it's like.
