Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Most successful feats involve the efforts of many people. This book is no exception. I'm proud of the result, but I can't take full credit. Here is my attempt to acknowledge everyone.

First, the people at my publisher. When Randi Roger approached me, not only did she provide the faith that I could write this book but also stressed the support I would receive from Sams Publishing. She wasn't exaggerating. The following people were professional and prompted me every step of the way: Betsy Brown, Lynn Baus, Jeff Schultz, Amy Patton, Carol Bowers, Mark Taber, Kate Small, and Damon Jordan, who as development editor made this book flow—plus all the editors listed in the front of this book.

When you look at other Sams books, you'll see many of these people acknowledged for a reason—they are great!

Macromedia is the most approachable software company I know. Without the following Macromedia employees (and countless others I can't name), this book wouldn't be what it is (nor would Flash be the product that it is): Jeremy Allaire, Brad Bechtel, Damian Burns, Mike Chambers, Jeremy Clark, Henriette Cohn, John Dowdell, Troy Evans, Gary Grossman, Erica Norton, Peter Santangeli, Sharon Selden, Matt Wobensmith, Michael Williams, Eric J. Wittman, and Lisa Young.

There are countless correspondents with whom I've learned a lot about Flash. Instead of naming several and inadvertently neglecting many, let me just say that participating in local user groups and online forums is a great way to expand your knowledge and build your business—they've helped me and helped this book. Of all the places I've learned about Flash, being in the classroom teaching has probably been the most educational for me. The students and staff of the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland Community College, and Portland State University deserve special recognition.
