The writing of this book was a big thing for me. I spend every free minute with passion in writing this. I had many doubts and thoughts as a dyslexic person to overcome this big challenge. But I never thought that writing this would give me lots of self-esteem, peace and joy. This would not have happened without the loving support and patient of my wife Mette and daughter Belize. Joining forces with my co-writing Vladimir was a lot of fun. Sharing thoughts and inside about our Magento passion was great. Last, but not least, I would like to thank all the people who made this writing possible.
