I've already used the terms developer and end user, and you will see them frequently throughout this book. Because you've gotten this far, I think I can safely assume that you're either a spreadsheet application developer or a potential developer.
My definitions regarding developers and end users are simple. The person who creates the spreadsheet application is the developer. For joint projects, there are multiple developers: a development team. The person who uses the results of the developer's spreadsheet programming efforts is the end user (which I often shorten to simply user). In many cases, there will be multiple end users, and often the developer is one of the users.
