This book is made possible by all the hard work of my colleagues and coauthors, Andrew Trice, Peter Ent, Jun Heider, Todd Prekaski, Tom Sugden, David Hassoun, and Joe Berkovitz, who have slaved and poured their passion and their life into this text for over a year to create one helluva book. I want to thank you, dear sirs, for making this dream possible. It has been an incredible privilege to have shared this space with such truly talented and awesome people.
And a special thanks to all the tech editors who believed in this project enough to give up their weekends just to help us authors keep true to the course. Thanks also goes out to Steve Webster at Adobe for writing the Foreword and believing in this book enough to lend us one of his brainiacs for the last fifth of this book, without which this project would not have been possible. And thanks to all the Adobe people I've spoken with who have encouraged me to write this book and have patiently answered my poignant and esoteric technical questions.
A big thank you goes to my agent David Fugate at LaunchBooks, who has put up with my incessant questions about the tech publishing industry and shepherded me through the process of finding this, one of the coolest of writing projects I have participated in to date. I'd also like to thank my esteemed colleague Tom Green for introducing me to David and mentoring me during my start in tech writing.
And, of course, a thank you to my editors at Wrox Publishing, Chris Webb and ...
