Writing this book was a tremendous amount of work, but I have grown a lot through the experience: as a writer, as a technologist, and as a person. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of my friends, family, and colleagues. I'm very grateful to you all. In particular, I want to thank Aliki Mavromoustaki, Felipe Moreno, Suphannee Sivakorn, Lucy Hao, Javon Thompson, Alexander Comerford, and Ryan Molin.
