Acknowledgments

This book could not have been written without our mighty, kind, and clever families, friends, and cohorts. First and foremost, eternal thanks to Terry and Deneen for putting up with us and for keeping the rest of the universe at bay while we toiled away on this book. This project saw us tucked away in our writers' cubby for many long hours, and somehow, you didn't complain once. We are lucky men.

This book could not have been written without the fine folks at Apress. More than just a publisher, they became fast friends. Clay Andres brought us to Apress in the first place and carried this book on his back. Dominic Shakeshaft was the gracious mastermind who dealt with all of our complaints with a smile on his face and somehow found a solution that made sense and made this book better. Laura Esterman, our wonderful and gracious project manager, was the irresistible force to our slowly movable object. She kept the book on the right track and always kept us pointed in the right direction. Heather Lang, copy editor extraordinaire, you were such a pleasure to work with; please, please, please copy edit our next book, too! Grace Wong and the production team took all these pieces and somehow made them whole, and Kari Brooks-Copony pulled together an incredibly yummy interior design. Kelly Winquist somehow coaxed such beautiful printed pages out of our Word documents. Pete Aylward assembled the marketing message and got it out to the world. To all the folks at Apress, thank you, thank you, thank you!

A very special shout out to our incredibly talented technical reviewer, Mark Dalrymple—in addition to providing insightful feedback, Mark tested all the code in this book and helped keep us on the straight and narrow. Thanks Mark!

Finally, thanks to our children for their patience while their dads were working so hard. This book is for you Maddie, Gwynnie, Ian, Kai, Daniel, Kelley, and Ryan.
