Charles Mohnike wrote the ColdFusion portion of this book. Ron has been involved with the Internet since the days of text links and gray backgrounds. He built his first Web application for Moon Travel Handbooks in 1994, a then-ambitious interactive map site that gained national attention, and launched his career as a developer of note. He rode the dot-com boom as a freelance consultant in Northern California, building sound, robust Web applications. Charles develops in Perl and ColdFusion, as well as several database platforms. With a background in print publishing, he currently runs a small development shop specializing in porting print publications to the Web. He writes on Internet technical and cultural topics for publications such as Wired Webmonkey, Microsoft Bookshelf, Smart TV, and Videomaker. He is the author of several instructional titles.
