Write Haiku. Get a signed book.
I have two extra copies of my book, Mastering Kafka Streams and ksqlDB. If you want a free, signed copy, please join my haiku contest to show that you can create something powerful and moving with only a few words. If you can, these technologies are right up your alley. Here are the rules:
- Your poem must be 3 lines long
- Don't worry about the 5-7-5 syllable rule in traditional haiku. Just make sure your poem flows well.
- Like all haiku, your poem should be succinct, yet beautiful
- Incorporate some seasonal or natural imagery (spring time, streams, trees, flowers, snow, whatever you like) and something related to software or computers
- Respond directly to the thread on Twitter or LinkedIn to submit your haiku
- Winners will be chosen on March 25th (I'll DM you in LinkedIn or Twitter - wherever you submitted your haiku)
- If you live outside the continental US, I'll provide a free digital copy of the book, instead.
