The acknowledgements are probably the hardest thing to write. It is impossible to name everyone personally and I probably will forget someone. For that I want to apologize beforehand.
Although this is the second book I wrote I couldn’t have done it without the team at Apress; without you this book would have never seen the light of day. A special thanks to Mark Powers and Anamika Panchoo for keeping me focused and on schedule.
I thank Felipe Gutierrez, without whose comments and suggestions this book would never have become what it is now.
Thanks to my family and friends for the times they missed me, and to my dive-buddies for all the dives and trips I missed over the last year.
Last but definitely not least I thank my wife, Djoke ...
