Want a free copy of Activiti in Action?

I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited to see that Tijs Rademakers’ new book on Activiti has finally gone to print. Several people have had access for some time through Manning’s Early Access Program (MEAP) so hopefully we’ll start to see some feedback on the book soon.

To celebrate, Manning has been kind enough to let me give away at least one copy of the book to readers of my blog. Respond to this post and I’ll pick a name at random from all of the responses I receive by noon Central/US time on Friday, July 20. It would be cool if you’d say how you are using Activiti (or how you are planning to use Activiti) but don’t feel like you have to make up something. One entry per person, void where prohibited, yada yada yada.

UPDATE: The contest is over. The winners have been selected and notified. The winners were jeanjot, Remy Girodon, and Ben Graham. Congratulations!

If you didn’t win and would like to purchase the book, Manning has provided a discount code for 37% off when purchased from Just use 12aiajp when you checkout.
