Alex Homer is a software developer and a technical author living and working in the idyllic rural surroundings of Derbyshire dales, in the heart of England. Rather than doing a real job, he's discovered the raw excitement and frustration that comes with installing and playing with the latest and flakiest beta code he can find - and then he writes about it. A long-time evangelist of ASP, he has been delving deep into the world of .NET and has emerged a confirmed convert to ASP.NET. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alex Homer contributed Chapters 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, and 15, and all Appendices to this book.

with it. You can contact him at email@example.com.

Brian Francis is the Solution Sales Specialist for NCR's

efforts throughout the United States. Brian has been writing books
on ASP for the past 7 years, including the Beginning ASP and
Professional ASP series for Wrox Press. When not working or

Karli Watson was an in-house author for Wrox Press with a
penchant for multi-colored clothing. He is now the technical
director of 3form (www.3form.net). He started out with the
intention of becoming a world-famous nanotechnologist, so perhaps
one day you might recognize his name as he receives a Nobel Prize.
For now, though, Karli's computing interests include all things
mobile and upcoming technologies such as C#. He can often be found
preaching about these technologies at conferences, as well as after
work hours at drinking establishments. Karli is a snowboarding
enthusiast, and wishes he had a cat.
Richard Anderson is an experienced software engineer and
writer who spends his time working with Microsoft technologies, day
in day out. Having spent the better part of the decade doing this,
he is still remarkably sane! Richard currently works for BMS
software - an ADP company - where he is a technical architecture
manager. Richard is currently working on the development of a
large-scale Internet-based payroll and HR system.
