There are so many people I need to thank for helping me bring this book into reality. First and foremost is my husband Steve who is the love of my life and the "above all else Karen do your book" disciplinarian! I had the wonderful joy of giving birth to our beautiful little daughter Zoe Grace during the writing of this book and at times found it incredibly tough to meet the deadlines. If it wasn't for Steve it would not have happened. I need to also thank Zac, the other gorgeous man in my life. Thank you for helping me and praying for me to get the book done. Your encouragement really helped-plus putting out the rubbish and cleaning up the kitchen :). To the guys at Dr Notes, you all inspire me, you guys simply all rock. Thank you to the guys at Packt-Kerry, Zainab, Dhwani, and Gaurav-you did well to put up with me and my hormones. A big thank you to Ed Brill for recommending me to Packt-it was a highlight in my career. Also a big thank you to Mary Beth Raven, Karen Hobert, and Kathy Staples for their invaluable input. All of you are incredibly busy and I appreciated and was honored with you taking the time to review this book. I can only hope that this book represents Lotus Notes in its best light; I believe in the product and the people behind it.
