About the Author
Todd Kitta resides in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri, with his beautiful wife, beautiful new daughter, and smelly Boxer (dog, not shorts).
Todd has a background in .NET development, and he has worked with .NET since its initial release in 2002. More recently, Todd’s involvement in business process software such as BizTalk led him to Windows Workflow Foundation, and the development of this book soon followed. Todd also writes articles for technical publications and speaks at local .NET User Group meetings. He is currently employed at a consulting firm in St. Louis called Covenant Technology Partners, which focuses on business intelligence and portal solutions that use Microsoft technologies.
Todd also enjoys playing his XBOX 360. You can find him by using gamer tag ZillaB2B2.
God-He makes anything and everything possible.
Shannon-Thank you for always believing in me and encouraging me. I love you now and forever. It isn’t often a pregnant woman/new mother would support her husband when he’s at various coffee shops working on a geeky project such as this book. I’m very lucky and blessed!
Mom and Dad-I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish anything I have if it weren’t for your support and guidance throughout the years. I’m blessed to have parents like you.
Joe-For being Joe. You rock!
