Before we go into the tip I'd like to start with an apology to all the people I didn't get back to. Earlier today I sent an email asking for help with the upcoming Codename One bootcamp. The anticipation and resulting email flood took me totally off-guard as I expected a couple of dozen responses in the best case scenario and got much more...
I started answering as fast as I could and getting back to people I already answered in the back and forth but quickly this became untenable and I'm seeing my backlog pile growing. Chen and others around here tried to help but I prefer to do this personally as I'd like the feedback to sink into my brain not as an afterthought as it is very valuable!
