Standing just behind Adaobi Tulton is the fantastic staff of Wiley publishing. From the acquisition editor to the production staff, every individual I've worked with has been friendly, professional, and stunningly easy to work with. I would also like to thank my agent, Laura Lewin, and the other talented individuals at StudioB, for all of their help.
Having been a technical editor myself, I am uniquely qualified to appreciate the contribution of Michael Trent, the technical editor on this book. Michael painstakingly reviewed each detail and procedure, making sure everything presented was correct, consistent, and unbiased. Michael, who is also an accomplished book author and professional developer, made many suggestions; often pointed out features, shortcuts, and practices that I was unaware of.
