    Thank you to all of my teammates in Enterprise Systems Engineering, the Government Systems

    Unit, and Advanced Services who have lent me your professional acumen and loyal friendship

    Id like to thank Mike OShea for his support and friendship over the course of developing this

    book. Mikes sound professional and personal advice have helped me endure the ebbs and flows

    of sanity while balancing a challenging workload and added development responsibilities

    associated with writing this book.

    Thank you to Pavan Reddy, one of the sharpest technical minds in Advanced Services, who was

    instrumental in helping me outline and define this scope of work and whose technical advice and

    words of encouragement throughout the course of developing this book have proven to be


    And on that note, many thanks go out to Andrew Cupp and Brett Bartow for their patience,

    understanding, and support during this process. An author could not have asked for a more

    professional team to work with while developing and publishing his work.
