This book would not have been possible without the support of several people, and I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank them.
Thanks to the amazing people at Apress: most importantly, Steve Anglin, Tom Welsh, Anamika Panchoo, Mary Behr, and many others. Many thanks to Manuel Jordan Elera for his technical review and the valuable feedback he provided.
Special thanks to my friends Mike Mormando and Steve Trousdale. Your suggestions helped me refine and improve this book’s content.
Finally, I would like to thank my wife for her constant support and encouragement in all my endeavors. Without you, this book would not have been possible.
