I wanted to take a moment to highlight a few cookbook contributors who have been extremely active in the Adobe Cookbooks lately.
Elad Elrom: Elad is a rising star of the Flash development world. He brings a fresh perspective, a strong background, and an inherent knack for the more subtle aspects of the Flash platform.

Recently Elad has contributed a bunch of excellent cookbook recipes focusing on AIR 2; check them out!
David Powers: If you are part of the Dreamweaver or PHP communities then the name David Powers is probably not unfamiliar to you. David is constantly out there assisting the community and is also a member of the Adobe Community Professional program. David is also the author of several best-selling books about Dreamweaver and PHP, including “The Essential Guide to Dreamweaver CS4 with CSS, Ajax, and PHP“, “PHP Solutions“, and “PHP Object-Oriented Solutions“.
