10 Millionth member celebrations.

Our 10 Millionth Member Celebrations have wound down (no, we didn't just run out of beer) and the winners of our contest have been announced. We'd like to say a huge thanks to the sponsors who donated their wares as part of the huge prize pack. RedGate, Aspose, LogicNP Software, Novalys - 25 sponsors all up so unfortunately we can't name them all.

One nice things is that Novalys went above and beyond and created a "CodeProject Special Edition" for their Visual Guard software free for all CodeProject members. Grab your member code to get started. Visual Guard adds security features to your applications, allowing you to combine user authentication, permissions management and audit in a single tool. Visual Guard is a ready-to-use solution that comes with a comprehensive administration application. No need to change your program, just a few lines of codes and you’re all set to go. The CodeProject version is free and fully featured.

Also a big thanks to those who are hosting the get-togethers that went on around the world. The US, Brazil, Israel, Germany, India and Bangladesh are happening this month. If anything breaks we don't need to know.

We need 5 minutes of your time.

Jeff Hadfield is our resident expert on all things Developer Communication and he would love to (surprisingly) pick the brains of anyone who's a developer and has 5 mins to give him their thoughts on Development, and he's also looking to speak to anyone who has added eCommerce capability to a web application.

Got the time? Email jeff@codeproject.com. It will make his day.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
