First and foremost, my thanks go to my colleague and co-author, Chris Liley. Without him, this book would not have been possible.
I have had the special privilege to work and learn under Andy Vabulas, Dwight Specht, and Clinton Weldon while at I.B.I.S., Inc. All three of them have mentored me and provided me many of the opportunities that enabled the creation of this book.
I am especially grateful for my colleagues at I.B.I.S., Inc., including Tan Le, Mark Polino, Abby Moore, and others. All have left an indelible impression on me.
Along with being exceptional colleagues at I.B.I.S., our technical reviewers Christina Belding and Amy Walsh deserve the highest praise for stepping forward to help Chris and I complete this project.
