Macromedia Technical Review

Jim Schley, Principal QA Engineer, ColdFusion QA, Macromedia Inc.

Writing this book was more work than I had anticipated, and without the help of my editors, Wendy Sharp and Wendy Katz, I don't think I would have made it. Thank you! I also have to say thanks to my wife, Malia, and my son, Andrew; they made the special sacrifice of not spending time with me while I slaved away writing, oftentimes into the wee hours of the morning. A special thanks to Doug Bentley, who has helped me in more ways than one. And finally, to my parents, for encouraging me to continue writing—thank you!
