I began programming as a 13-year-old on a Timex Sinclair 1000, a computer with a 3.25 MHz processor and 2KB of memory that used a TV as a monitor. I'd like to dedicate this book to the person who bought that computer and never complained when I immediately stole it from him -- my dad, Roger Cadenhead, Sr. Thanks, Dad! That led me to this
To the folks at Sams and Pearson[md]especially Mark Taber, Tonya Simpson, Seth Kerney, Barbara Hacha, and Boris Minkin. No author can produce a book like this on his own. Their excellent work will give me plenty to take credit for later.
To my wife, Mary, and my sons, Max, Eli, and Sam.
