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, I'd like to thank the people at Sams Publishing. 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, Brandon Houston, Jeff Schultz, Amy Patton, Carol Bowers, Mark Taber, Kate Small, Matt Purcell, Brandon Houston, Vanessa Evans, 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 current and former Macromedia employees (and countless others whom I can't name), this book wouldn't be what it is (nor would Flash be the product that it is):

Jeremy Allaire, Waleed Anbar, Luke Bayes, Brad Bechtel, Matt Bendiksen, Doug Benson, Paul Betlem, Jody Bleyle, Greg Burch, Julee Burdekin, Damian Burns, Kent Carlson, Morena Carvalho, Mike Chambers, Jennifer Chan, Francis Cheng, Jeremy Clark, Henriette Cohn, Karen Cook, Jim Corbett, Kelly Cunningham, Jen deHaan, Thais Derich, Rob Dixon, Aaron Dolberg, John Dowdell, Joel Dreskin, Mike Downey, Daniel Dura, Ken Eckey, Allen Ellison, Troy Evans, Vera Fleischer, Mally Gardiner, Jonathan Gay, Craig Goodman, Peter Grandmaison, Gary Grossman, Giacomo “Peidi” Guilizzoni, Rebekah Hash, Emmy Huang, Barbara Herbert, Chris Hock, Jeff Kamerer, Forest Key, Lily Khong, San Khong, Sang Kim, Sean Kranzberg, Kit Kwan, Carol Linburn, Jared Loftus, Kevin Lynch, Sasha Magee, Ethan Malasky, Sheila McGinn, David Mendels, Michael Montagna, Jeff Mott, Tony Mowatt, Eric Mueller, Erica Norton, Chris Nuuja, Masanori Oba, Nigel Pegg, Bill Perry, Krishna Prathab, Abdul Qabiz, Shimi Rahim, Nivesh Rajbhandari, Supriya Rao, Thomas Reilly, Erin Rosenthal, Robert Sandie, Peter Santangeli, Sharon Selden, Mark Schroeder, Werner Sharp, Mark Shepherd, Michelle Sintov, Ed Skwarecki, Tim Statler, Edwin Smith, Tracy Stampfli, Rebecca Sun, Joan Tan, Christopher Thilgen, Pradeepa Thoma, Lee Thomason, Mike Tilburg, Tinic Uro, Chris Walcott, Michael Williams, Eric J. Wittman, Matt Wobensmith, Edwin Wong, Greg Yachuk, Lisa Young, Jody Zhang, Alan Musselman, Scott Unterberg, Tomas van der Haase, Pranav Verma, Jethro Villegas, Peter Von Dem Hagen, and Suketu Vyas.

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 Northwest Academy, Pacific Northwest College of Art and Portland Community College deserve special recognition.
