Acknowledgments

I would like to thank Jonathan Hassell, my editor, for giving me another opportunity and remaining confident that I could finish one of the first few books on Silverlight 4 at a highly accelerated speed.

The schedule was really aggressive, and positive support from Laurin Becker (coordinating editor), Damien Foggon (technical reviewer), Mary Ann Fugate (copy editor), and other Apress team members enabled me to achieve this task successfully. They deserve special thanks for their thorough review and quick turnarounds, which helped me develop quality content in the given challenging timeline.

Jay Nanavaty, a senior consultant of Technology Opinion, has been working with me since my first book, Pro Silverlight for the Enterprise, published last year. He dedicated long hours helping me develop many examples for this book. Without his excellent work and through knowledge of Silverlight and .NET, it would have been very challenging for me to finish the book.

With blessings from God and encouragement from my grandparents, parents, and in-laws, I was able to accomplish this task successfully. My wife, Pratixa, and two little sons, Gyan (6 years old) and Anand (2 years old), have continued their positive support, which enabled me to finish my third consecutive book. I thank my family for their unbelievable cooperation and encouragement, and for keeping their faith in me during this ambitious endeavor.
