I dedicate this book to the One who has made everything new by His sacrifice and has given me everything that I have in my life.

To my wife, Mylène, and my son, Jean-Thomas, whom I love very much, for their relentless support and understanding.

To my extended family, Andrée-Anne, Geneviève, Marie-Rose and Augustin, for their trust and confidence in me.

To my mother, Lise, and my father, Carroll, may he rest in peace, for everything that they have taught and given me over the years.

To all my friends, particularly Martin, Élise, Rose-Anne, and Martin, for their patience and collaboration.

To my computer science instructors, Richard Truchon, Jean-Marie Veilleux, Daryl Wood, and Jakub Zalas, who have made me the computer programmer that I am today, with a very special mention to Doug Bierer, whose good mentoring and true friendship changed my professional life forever.
