About the Author

Gareth Downes-Powell has been working in the computer industry for the last twelve years, primarily building and repairing PCs, and writing custom databases. He branched out onto the Internet five years ago, and started creating web sites and custom web applications. This is now his main area of expertise, and he uses a variety of languages including ASP and PHP, with SQL Server or MySQL backend databases.

A partner in Buzz inet, http://www.buzzinet.co.uk/, an Internet company specializing in Web Design and Hosting, he uses a wide range of Macromedia products, from Dreamweaver MX through to Macromedia Flash and Director for custom multimedia applications. Gareth maintains http://ultradev.buzzinet.co.uk/ as a way of providing support for the whole Macromedia UltraDev and MX Community. There, he regularly adds new tutorials and custom written extensions to this rapidly expanding site.

Gareth enjoys keeping up with the latest developments, and has been providing support to many users, to help them use UltraDev or Dreamweaver MX with ASP or PHP, o n a Linux or Windows server. Rarely offline, Gareth can always be found in the Macrom edia forums (news: forums.macromedia.com), where he helps to answer many users questions on a daily basis.

Tim Green is a full time IT Manager and an eBusiness/B2B Advisor based in the North West of England. Beginning his working life as a COBOL and Assembly Language programmer, he moved into web application development in 1996, after dabbling in numerous other careers, from acting to being a chef.

A contributing developer to PHAkT, an implementation of PHP for UltraDev 4, he was contracted by PHAkT’s creators to work on their other PHP implementation, ImpAKT, and the NeXTensio toolkit, and became the first developer to release additional extensions for UltraDev PHP, including a shopping cart management system called IntelliCART.

Bruno Mairlot works as full time employee in Security and High Availability company based in Luxembourg. He specialises in developing implementation of network and internet protocols with PHP and MySQL.

He began his working life as founder of a company for website development and network services four years ago, then moved on to work with other companies, but always working mainly as a website developer and security consultant for the web.

Along with Tim and Gareth, Bruno is also a contributor to the Dreamweaver and PHP community, and is part of the management team of the community site Udzone.com. He is the author of the project that aims to give users a powerful MySQL Administration console into Dreamweaver as an extension.
