About the Author
Joshua Davies has been hacking on computers since his father brought home the family's first computer, a TI-99/4A, in 1982. He holds a Bachelor's degree in computer science from Valdosta State University and a Masters degree in computer science from the University of Texas at Arlington. He has been programming professionally since 1990 and as a result has never had to do any real work. He is currently responsible for security architecture at Travelocity.com and previously worked internationally as a consultant for One, Inc. whose client list included AT&T, Nieman Marcus, Intermedia, and the Mexican telecommunications giant Pegaso. He prefers to work in C or assembler, but often codes in Java since it pays the bills. He currently resides in Dallas, Texas with his wife and two children.
