It has been said that an open source project isn't a "real" project until there has been a book written about it. This book is the result of a collective effort by many, many people, without which there would be no WaveMaker to write about.

First and foremost, I want to thank my family; my incredibly supportive wife Tamara and my darling girls, Lauren and Olivia. Their love, understanding, and patience throughout this process has been simply wonderful.

I would also like to thank the WaveMaker team, and in particular Chris Keene, Derek Henninger, and Michael Kantor. The collective energy and drive of the team we formed at WaveMaker is the stuff that empowers us to move mountains, build villages, and change the world.

Finally, a gigantic thank you to the WaveMaker community. If it were not for the participation and contributions of community members; folks like Manuel, Stefano, Thomas, Gary, Jose, Lenny, Jeff, and Niek to name but a few, WaveMaker would never have matured into the awesome little IDE it has become. Working incredibly hard truly can be fun when collaborating with a global group of guys and gals like those of the WaveMaker community.
