A Note from the Authors
This book is written with the reader in mind. As writers, we're always interested in hearing your thoughts about what worked, what didn't, what was good, and what wasn't. We'd love to hear any feedback or comments you might have.
Any mistakes or clarifications found in this book will be posted to www.brianmadden.com.
For anyone wondering, neither of us (or any of the technical advisors) work for Microsoft. Ron works for a consulting firm in Chicago called RapidApp, and Brian is self-employed.
We mention several companies, products, and vendors throughout this book. None of them paid us to be listed. These are simply companies whose products we've used and liked.
Thanks for reading, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Once again, this book wouldn't be here if my wife Holli wasn't as supportive as she was. I can't even count how many times she picked up my share of the housework so that I could write. She's super-fly.
Thanks also to Gabe and G.K. for letting me ask them countless questions at all hours. Even late at night. And weekends.
Finally, Leah did an awesome job with the editing. I'm consistently blown-away at her abilities. She's the reason this book is 500 pages instead of 600. (Trust me, that's a very good thing.)
I would like to say "thank you" to my wife Dina, who put up with all the week-ends and evenings when I was glued to my laptop.
Thanks to Rob Zylowski at RapidApp for his feedback and encouragement, and thanks to all the guys at RapidApp for putting up with me. They are probably sick and tired of hearing about this book.
