Angela C. Buraglia is the founder of DreamweaverFAQ.com, but she came to the web development profession in a round-about manner. Angela realized she wanted a career that would allow her to start a family and stay home with her husband and child. In an effort to give back to the Macromedia Dreamweaver newsgroup community that helped and encouraged her in her new career, she founded DreamweaverFAQ.com. Although she only intended to be a web developer, life's path has led her to become that and more. In addition to her contribution to this book, Angela was a contributing author to Dreamweaver MX Magic (New Riders), a contributing author to The ColdFusion MX Web Application Construction Kit (Macromedia Press), the lead technical editor for the Dreamweaver MX Bible (Wiley Publishing, formerly Hungry Minds), and involved in one way or another with several other Dreamweaver-related books. Currently, she is also a Team Macromedia volunteer for Dreamweaver.
Angela's future plans are to continue developing DreamweaverFAQ.com, to build and sell Dreamweaver extensions, to give presentations at conferences, and perhaps to become involved in new book projects. Long gone are the days of applying makeup; now Angela applies behaviors and CSS to web sites¿ and most importantly¿is home with her little boy.
Angela lives in Brea, California, with her husband, Ambrogio, and 2-year-old son, Gaetano.
