None of this would have been possible without the help and support of so many different individuals over the last 2 years (and more!). I want to start by thanking my sister, Rabia, and her husband, Faizan. Most of this book was written during my stay at their place. They have been the biggest supporters of my work after my parents. They gave me the love, support, and space that made this monumental task possible. I promise I will do the dishes next time Rabia!
I am eternally grateful to my brothers, Haseeb and Ubaid, for existing and for guiding me whenever required. It would not be an exaggeration to say that without Ubaid’s support I wouldn’t be where I am today.
To my friend, Meg Imperato, who edited earlier drafts of the book. Her friendship over the years has made good times better and bad times, bearable. She has heard me rant about technical stuff more than any other friend of mine. Thanks, Meg!
To the team at Feldroy who made sure this alpha version was released on time. Daniel Roy Greenfeld was the best technical editor and mentor that I could have asked for. He made sure I didn’t make any major embarrassing mistakes. Carla helped with the prose and Fabio helped with the code. The fact that these people don’t hate me after making so many corrections is an achievement in itself.
And finally, a special thanks goes to my parents without whom none of this would be worth it. No words can do justice to how much their unconditional love means to me. Thank you ammi jee (mom) and abu-jee (dad)!
