A directory to personal and professional websites of CodeProject members.

Introduction

This article aims to provide a central directory for homepages (personal as well as professional) of CP members, thus promoting unity amongst the CP community.

How it all started

It all started when Vikram decided to dedicate a whole page in his new website to provide links to members of CodeProject. He posted a thread on this and the response was encouraging. Amongst the replies were suggestions to host the page at CodeProject itself instead of his own site. One such person was Brian Welsch. Vikram, on a hunch asked Brian if he'd be interested in helping him write the article, and Brian instantly agreed. Thus this article was born.

How it works

We wanted to keep this article fairly simple. Amongst the options we discussed were:

  1. Creating a form at CP and automatically updating the contents of the article, but this was too complex.
  2. Asking readers to post a comment on the article, with their homepage. This was rejected because it might be abused, and more importantly, only 25 messages are visible at a time, which means that earlier messages are hidden.

 

Finally, we decided on the safest thing to do- all you have to do is send an email to CP_HomePages@yahoo.com, giving

  1. Your CP display name (NOT your login email address) and your CP ID number (required for linking to profiles)
  2. Your homepage
  3. A short description of your homepage, not exceeding 2 lines
  4. What topic you'd like your homepage listed under (please see list below for topics).

 

We chose this approach since it allows us to go through what you want to put up, preventing the article from being abused. Also, it needs less work on our part. You will receive an email from one of us within a week, and if no further clarifications are needed, your homepage will be added to the article.

Homepage categories

  • Our homepages – The authors' homepages and of course, Chris'.
  • Personal pages – If your site is about yourself, your interests and your dog.
  • Blogs – 'Nuff said.
  • Services – Consulting and other servicves.
  • Hobby sites – A site for your favorite hobby.
  • Products – If your website showcases your freeware/shareware product.
  • Miscellaneous – If your site just can't fit in anywhere else, add it here.

Vikram is a 20-something bloke working in Madras (aka Chennai), India. Vikram was born in Madras, brought up in Coimbatore, and is now back in Madras. He loves listening to music, reading and watching cricket. He hates cats.

Vikram joined CP way back in 2002 when he was in college and had papers on Windows programming. In his past lives, he languished around, roaming the wilderness of Solaris, eventually moving on to writing software for managing ATMs in .NET. He now works as a Business Analyst who dabbles in SQL for an investment bank, working with applications for structured products.

He "loves everyone" for whatever that is worth. And he rather makes a big deal out of the fact that he's ambidextrous....

Despite all resistance, I'm a programmer. It started with endless hours of torture reading DATA statements to my father as he typed them into our TRS-80. ARRRGHHH!!
This moved to an actual interest once I learned how to code a little, then in college I said "there is no way I'm living my life in front of a stupid computer screen" so I quit.

Four years later, tired of managing a restaurant, and partying til 4-5 in the morning I sought more structure. And got a job programming. It serves me well and here I am.
