The guys running this place
Chris is the Co-founder, Administrator, Architect, Chief Editor and Shameless Hack who wrote and runs The Code Project. He's been programming since 1988 while pretending to be, in various guises, an astrophysicist, mathematician, physicist, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a web developer. He is a Microsoft Visual C++ MVP both globally and for Canada locally.
His programming experience includes C/C++, C#, SQL, MFC, ASP, ASP.NET, and far, far too much FORTRAN. He has worked on PocketPCs, AIX mainframes, Sun workstations, and a CRAY YMP C90 behemoth but finds notebooks take up less desk space.
He dodges, he weaves, and he never gets enough sleep. He is kind to small animals.
Chris was born and bred in Australia but splits his time between Toronto and Melbourne, depending on the weather. For relaxation he is into road cycling, snowboarding, rock climbing, and storm chasing.
Founder Developer Media
I direct The Code Project's business activities, such as strategic direction, partnerships, and vendor relations. I started photo-etching circuit boards when I was 8, and at 11 was haunting the halls and computer science labs at the local college so much that I was invited by Professor Wayne Ayott to audit his software and hardware design courses.
Over my career I have used C# , C++, Win32, MFC, Assembler, Basic, and Clipper, on applications for the military, commercial ventures, medical research and the labour movement. Through my medical informatics work I came to know what real-time and mission-critical really mean… just try being part of the critical path when a woman goes into labor.
I have been honoured to receive many business, industry and leadership awards including being named an Exceptional Young Entrepreneur (Profit Magazine) and to the list of Who's Who in Canadian Business. The companies I started have been recognized as the Fastest Growing companies in Canada (Profit Magazine), as the Fastest Growing North American Technology Companies (Deloitte & Touché) and named as a Top 100 Innovator and Leader by SDTimes in every year from 2003 to 2008.
Here's my professional profile on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/davidcunningham
In 2007 Microsoft acquired technology from one of my companies, Dundas Data Visualization, for inclusion in SQL Server 2008.
I live in Toronto and enjoy photography, scuba, food, riding my Honda Nighthawk motorcycle, and am trying to learn enough about wine to not be completely lost with a wine list in my hands. I find myself spending a lot of time these days thinking about the world our children will inherit, and so have been paying a lot of attention to alternative energy (wind, solar), robotics, education and (for the first time in my life) politics.

The Code Project
Editing articles written by smart and experienced programmers on The Code Project is a job she loves and it keeps her updated on the latest technologies.

She enjoys playing with her 3-year old son, travelling and listening to music.
Sales Developer Media
I joined Developer Media and CodeProject in 2007 because it gave me an opportunity to work in the developer/IT/DevOp space with some of the most amazing minds of our time. I'm in total awe of developer websites like CodeProject which provide free technical content on an array of development and IT topics. The team at Developer Media and CodeProject, including the website dev community, are some of the smartest people the industry has to offer. IMHO.
I come to Developer Media with a background in technology and online media. My job is to help find the best resources and tools available to help developers and IT Pros with their day to day development and IT needs.
When I'm not working, I'm hiking or running with my dog, Bella, or watching basketball! Go Warriors!

A graduate of La Salle University, Joe has worked with high profile clients such as IBM, SAP and Dell to deliver their marketing message to IT professionals around the world.

According to Joe, there's nothing better on a summer afternoon than a cold beer and a good cigar!

Product Manager Developer Media
I am one of the newest additions to the CodeProject/Developer Media team and will be filling the role of Editor and Special Projects Manager. Some might find it curious that my educational background in History and Journalism has led to a job in the technology industry, but those who know me and my innate geekiness probably aren't too surprised.
I previously served as a Staff Writer with "IT in Canada" and as Associate Editor for its sister company, "The Canadian Channel Standard", providing coverage of information technology news, new product launches, business programs, industry events and conferences, and performing interviews with experts and executives from some of today's largest IT companies.
When I'm not in the office or attached to my screen and keyboard, you can probably find me catching up my some reading, exploring the outdoors, DJing your favourite house music, or enjoying a local microbrew beer.
I am an eccentric genius, at least I tell everyone I am a genius to justify my eccentricity. I have been working with the developer community since 1997, when I started at FTP selling advertising space in Visual Basic Programmer’s Journal which is now Visual Studio Magazine (I know, I know…but somebody has to do the dirty work so we can deliver all this great content to you).
After nine years of service at my former company I took a year off and started my own business www.novatopilates.com (a Pilates studio) and realized that I absolutely never want to run my own business again….ever. Happily, I landed at CodeProject which is now part of DeveloperMedia and hope to continue selling enough ads so that we can buy shiny new toys for the sites (see server farm at the bottom of the page).
I am an experienced graphic designer and web developer perfectly skilled in dealing with most of graphic editors and web coding standards.
I came a long way throughout those years. I started from simple flayers, baby pages, flash animations to corporate identity, campagin projects, e-commerce, e-magazines and script powered, user friendly, modern, proper websites.
Enjoing what I do, keeping head high and looking forward to challange the unknown of the web development world and get that lot

Sean Ewington is the Content Manager for CodeProject.
His background in programming is primarily C++ and HTML, but has experience in other, "unsavoury" languages.
He loves movies, and likes to say "inconceivable" often, even if it does not mean what he thinks it means.

My other hobbies include having a pint with my friends at a local pub.
CodeProject is hosted on 4 web servers running Windows 2008 R2. Each box has between 8 and 16Gb RAM and runs standard hyperthreaded desktop-level intel chips.
