About the Author:

Adam McDaniel has been designing, developing, modifying, and maintaining computer programs of one language or another since 1993, and he has been an active proponent of HTML since being introduced to the language in 1994.
Since that time, Adam has led a team of developers implementing an eCommerce fulfillment engine for a virtual shopping mall, designed hundreds of corporate websites, and developed front–end HTML and back–end CGI infrastructure for CADVision, at the time one of the largest ISPs in Western Canada. In 2001, Adam moved into the software security sector, working for Hitachi ID Systems for over eight years, designing and implementing software security recommendations for various Fortune 500 companies across the United States and Europe. Soon afterwards, based on his past CGI experience, Adam wrote his first book, Perl and Apache: Your visual blueprint to developing dynamic Web content. Most recently, Adam rejoined the HTML world as the lead OS architect for Jolicloud, a Paris–based company, contributing to its HTML5 Linux operating system.
As Adam is always interested in new technologies and architectures, his other development credits include an open–source offline HTML reader for the Palm OS platform, contributions to the Linux Kernel, and other utility and specialty programs. In 2006, Adam produced the Array.org Netbook Kernel software download and website, allowing users to download an optimized build of the Linux kernel, specific for the Ubuntu Linux distribution.
