I want to thank my editors Andy Oram and Shawn Wallace. I also want to say thank you to Brian Jepson for all his help and support.
Thank you to my friends and colleagues: those who listen, help unconditionally, and most importantly, expect nothing in return.
I feel grateful for having wonderful technical editors, Dmytro Golub and Niklas Saers, and for the many hours of work they put into pointing out and correcting my mistakes. Thank you for your help.
I would like to acknowledge the help and support of and say thank you to my colleagues and friends: Kirk Pattinson, Shaun Puckrin, Gary McCarville, Dmytro Golub, Nick Hayden, Will Jones, Michael Moran, Manas Pradhan, Hin Chua, Marcin Rufer, Marcin Hawro, Krzysztof Gutowski, William Boles, Linyu Li, Debra Bilikha, and Alexander Bede.
Last but not least, this book is the result of hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication—by myself, my editors, and technical reviewers. I hope it will help you toward your goal of mastering programming using iOS SDK.
