Acknowledgments

Writing a book about new software is a solitary activity, grappling with a constantly moving target and pounding the keyboard to deliver the chapters on time. But none of it would be possible without an army of helpers. First, there’s Scott Fegette, Senior Product Manager for Dreamweaver, who kept me informed of the engineering team’s plans. Then there’s Kin Blas, a Dreamweaver engineer actively involved in developing jQuery Mobile, who clarified points I found difficult to understand. My thanks go to them and to the rest of the Dreamweaver team for their help both directly and indirectly.

I’ve also had a strong backup team at Peachpit: Victor Gavenda, who accepted the concept of this book and liked it so much that he persuaded Adobe Press that it was high time one of my books was printed in color; Valerie Witte, my editor, who calmly accepted my frequent changes of mind about the structure of the book; Anne Marie Walker, my development editor, who picked up inconsistencies and helped me (mis)spell the American way; Tom Muck, my technical editor, who spotted problems with code and made suggestions to improve it; and Cory Borman, who oversaw the production process.

Many others have helped indirectly. At times, the Twitter stream felt like an annoying distraction, but it provided some invaluable leads, alerting me to changes in this fast-moving industry. It also provided some essential light relief, although I’m not sure I’m ready to watch another cat video just yet.
