The Code Project
Administrator, Manager, Author, Member
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.
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.
CodeProject Solutions/Developer Media
Administrator, Manager, Author, Member
I'm President at CodeProject Solutions/Developer Media and I'm responsible for managing day-to-day activities as well as guiding new projects.
I'm a University of Waterloo Electrical Engineering graduate and I've been in the technology field forever. The first software I ever wrote was a charting application in BASIC running on the CP/M-80 operating system on a Sanyo MBC-1200 (4MHz Z-80 CPU). My programming experiences includes assembler, Turbo Pascal, dBASE III, Clipper, VB/VB.NET, C#, C/C++, Java, ASP.NET, Windows Forms, WPF, and Silverlight. I also spent 7 years at Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond as lead evangelist and group manager engaged with the ISV and development tools communities.
I now live in Burlington and in my spare time I play Rugby and hang out with my two boys.

Jeff has worked with personal computers since the late seventies, when he learned to program BASIC on an Apple II (not an Apple II Plus, mind you). Since then, he’s learned Pascal, Fortran and VB/VB.NET – all of which have been enough to show him that he’s not a born developer, but he can play one on TV, so to speak. He's working to make CodeProject even more valuable to community members and help bring new services online to make CodeProject even better.
Jeff has worked with developers and developer communities for 20 years. He is the former Editorial Director of WordPerfect Magazines (remember macros?). He's also the former Editor in Chief and Publisher of Visual Basic Programmer's Journal, Visual Studio Magazine, Java Pro magazine, Visual C++ Developers Journal, Exchange & Outlook Magazine, Enterprise Architect magazine, and Microsoft Architecture Journal. He also worked on the VBITS/VSLive! conferences and the various related websites for those publications and conferences. He has spoken and presented at many industry conferences and events.
He currently works to help businesses understand and reach developers better as part of Developer Media.
All things considered, he'd rather be cycling.
Terrence Dorsey is Director of Content Development at CodeProject. Previously he worked as Senior Editor and Technical Editor of MSDN Magazine. His writing has appeared in MSDN Magazine, Application Development Trends and Redmond Magazine.
After completing a BA Honours in Philosophy at the University of Ottawa, he decided to forego his initial goal of working his way up the lucrative metaphysical corporate ladder. He got his face out of the books and plunked firmly in front of a monitor.
His interest and experience in researching the web lured him into online marketing, where he started “thrashing about” with HTML. Mike acts as a fulcrum between the exploits of the marketing and technical sides respectively, to make sure that everyone is on the same site.
So how does a philosophy degree benefit what he does here at the Code Project? His answer would likely be “Let me ponder that indefinitely and get back to you with a logically sound, and completely non-committal answer,” which in reality is his answer to everything, although not in so many words.
When his body starts to go numb from sitting in front of a computer too long, he likes to play hockey.
I have sold advertising in the Software Development Market since 1999 in both print and Online. Prior to that I sold advertising for a Friends & Family Website that was ahead of its time in Social Media.
I am based in the Boston, Massachusetts area.
I have worked for other developer Web site companies within the past nine years of my career in advertising sales, but Code Project is by far the best company I have come across. The community involvement with the product is absolutely fantastic. The staff is full of the most brilliant minds in the industry. I’m so happy to be part of the CodeProject! I’m based in NYC, so when I’m not working I can be spotted in central park with my adorable pug or shopping at the fabulous stores nearby.
I have been working for The Code Project for the last 3 years and am happy to be part of such a great team. Currently working as an Advertising Sales Coordinator and Virtual Tech Summit Project Manager, I have had the chance to work in a variety of departments here from Accounting to Adops to Inside Sales. Prior to The Code Project I worked in the fashion industry and can still be found lingering around malls every now and again.
I joined CodeProject Solutions Inc. in July 2007 and haven’t looked back. Five years later I still love working here. Admittedly, I still know nothing about software development, but I’m in awe of those that get it done. I’m more a finance guru and have a deep passion for all things accounting.
When I’m not here working I’m spending my time with my two little girls who keep me busier than any job ever could.
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).

No Biography provided
I am in Sales and Marketing at the Code Project. I’m very excited about the future possibilities and hope to play a significant role in ensuring continued success for the site and its members.
When I'm not at work, I enjoy hanging out with friends, exploring the city, golf, yoga, and travelling as much as possible!
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 strong 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!
