About the Reviewers


Every journey begins with a first step; this is true in my case as it is my first book. This journey of mine would not have been successful if it was not for the support of my family and many of my friends. I am truly blessed with such wonderful family and friends.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank my mom, dad, and brother for their wonderful support and encouragement in every step of the way and providing moral support when needed. I would also like to thank my lovely wife Vanishree and kids Veda and Amit for their patience, support, and understanding without which I would have never been able to complete this book. Next, I would like to thank my technical reviewers. You guys did an awesome job. Your insight and input has increased the overall value of this book.

I would also like to thank my publisher Packt Publishing, and the many fine people such as Dhwani, Shubhanjan, Hithesh, and Prashant for their valuable input and patience. You guys ROCK! I guess I owe you guys a beer when you are here in Atlanta.

Writing a book is a lot of work and is time-consuming. Even though I am the only author on this book, there are many people who are involved in making this book a finished product for the readers. While I may not come in contact with many of these folks, I would like to thank them and certainly appreciate their work and effort.
