Roger Braunstein is a multidisciplinary programmer and the Chief Roger Officer of Partlyhuman, an independent development and design shop in Portland, OR. Besides this book, Roger is an author of the first edition of ActionScript 3.0 Bible, and a short e-book, Introduction to Flex 2. Roger builds games, mobile apps, interactive art, tools, web apps, and websites using any technology he can wrap his head around. When not in front of a computer, Roger enjoys normal human activities such as biking, cooking, reading, traveling, taking photos, rollerskating, and dancing to music made on GameBoys. He is perpetually too preoccupied to put anything interesting on his site http://partlyhuman.com/, but you can use it to get in touch with him.
