Thanks to Courtney Nash, who has worked on all three editions of this book (since 2009!), from the beginning to the end. We’ve had to work around Apple’s release cycles and this round was tough to get out the door—thanks to Courtney, we finally did!
The O’Reilly team:
To the talented crew over at O’Reilly who prettied up our files after we were done with them and is always there for reachback when we need help with the process and our learners, too.
Thanks to Jayanth Prathipati, Element 84’s first intern who stepped in to pinch hit and help us finish up with screen shots that had to be updated for iOS7.
Our friends and family:
To all of the Pilones and Chadwicks, who have helped us with the kids and were understanding of us busting out laptops at various inappropriate times to get this one done.
To all our friends at Element 84 who ended up helping out here and there when we needed opinions.
To Paul Pilone, who helped us write the code for the book and ran through a mess of iOS7 updates pretty quick.
To Brett McLaughlin, who worked through storyboarding with us and gave us someone else to help bear the InDesign load.
To Vinny and Nick, who have been practicing baseball and taekwondo while parts of this book were written, and who we hope are going to be able to help us write the next one!
