Writing a book requires a lot of work from a team of people. I would like to give a huge thanks to the team at Packt Publishing, who have helped make this book a reality. Specifically, I would like to thank Rohit Kumar Singh, for excellent guidance and feedback for each chapter, and Denim Pinto, for proposing the book and guiding me through the start. I also need to direct a thanks to Abhishek Kumar for providing good technical feedback.

Also, I would like to say thanks to my friends and colleagues who have been supportive and patient when I have not been able to give them as much time as they deserve.

Thanks to my mom and my dad for always supporting me.

Thanks to my sister, Susanne, and my friend Steffen for providing me with ideas from the start, and images where needed.

I need to thank John Sonmez and his great work, without which, I probably would not have got the chance to write this book.

Last, and most importantly, I would like to thank my girlfriend, Miriam, for always supporting me through this process, for pushing me to work when I was stuck, and being there when I needed time off. I could not have done this without her.
