Cocoa Design Patterns would not exist without inspiration and trailblazing provided by Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software by Erich Gamma, Richard Helm, Ralph Johnson, and John M. Vlissides.

Cocoa Design Patterns would have no reason to exist if not for the astounding design and engineering accomplishment embodied by the Cocoa frameworks. From NEXTSTEP 0.8 in 1988 to OPENSTEP Enterprise 4.2 for Windows NT, Solaris, and HPUX in 1997 to Mac OS X 10.0 in 2001 and iPhones in 2007, the creators of Cocoa continue to advance the state of the art while setting ever higher standards for elegance and consistency.

Cocoa Design Patterns would have no audience without the vibrant dedication and camaraderie of the Cocoa developer community embodied by the subscribers to Apple’s Cocoa-dev mailing list, the countless informative Cocoa-related blogs, and the third-party application developers large and small.

I’d like to thank my family for their patience and support and those in the community who have helped me learn over the years.
