Courtney Nash has been a patient and brilliant editor. She has taken this book though lots of ups and downs and has been instrumental in helping me put together a title that looks at WordPress in a different, uniquely Head First way. Her input and guidance have been invaluable.
The O’Reilly team:
As always, the O’Reilly team has been extremely helpful and supportive. I’d like to thank everyone that had a hand in making this book great, including Karen Shaner, Scott Delugan, and Laurie Petrycki.I’d also like to thank Brett McLaughlin, a Head First master for teaching me the ways of the brain and taking a chance on a punk kid just out of college.
My friends and family:
Jelly Chicago has been the backbone of my time in Chicago and this book is better off because of the people that I’ve meet and worked with there. I’d also like to thank my Loudpixel colleagues, Allie Osmar, Ryan Abbott, and Lesley Jones, for keeping the business running smoothly while I was on deadline.
My wife (as of November 2010), Allie, has been amazingly supportive throughout this entire process. To my mom, Jill, and my dad, Jeff, for their endless support of my work and their willingness to listen to me ramble on about technology and all things geek. You guys mean the world to me!
