from Jochen and Sebastian

Above all, we want to thank our families and partners for their understanding and their support when we spent our afternoons and evenings with the book instead of with them. Also, our customers had to be patient from time to time, when we developed Extbase or wrote the book instead of working on their project.

TYPO3 would not exist without the dedication and vision of Kasper Skårhøj and without the tireless work of all community members, especially the TYPO3 core team. Here, we specifically want to thank the members who discovered and implemented many future-proof technologies for TYPO3 v6. Extbase would not be possible without this inspiration and these guidelines.

Also when creating the book, we had generous support: a thank you goes to Patrick Lobacher, as he wrote the section about Object Oriented Programming.

Our special thanks goes to our editors, Alexandra Follenius and Inken Kiupel, who gave us a lot of feedback and comments to our texts, and thus had a great impact on the creating of this book. Also we want to thank the many unknown helping hands at O'Reilly, who ultimately created this book.

Additionally, you are right now reading the English version of this book, so we want to thank our translators for the dedication and work they have put into this project over the last months!

Last but not least, we want to thank you: That you want to use Extbase and Fluid!
