#realJSOP
Software Developer (Senior) Paddedwall Software
United States United States
I've been paid as a programmer since 1982 with experience in Pascal, and C++ (both self-taught), and began writing Windows programs in 1991 using Visual C++ and MFC. In the 2nd half of 2007, I started writing C# Windows Forms and ASP.Net applications, and have since done WPF, Silverlight, WCF, web services, and Windows services.

My weakest point is that my moments of clarity are too brief to hold a meaningful conversation that requires more than 30 seconds to complete. Thankfully, grunts of agreement are all that is required to conduct most discussions without committing to any particular belief system.

Authorize.Net
United States United States
Connecting a website to the payment processing networks is exceptionally difficult and typically beyond the expertise and technical resources of most online merchants. Instead, merchants can easily connect to the Authorize.Net Payment Gateway, which provides the complex infrastructure and security necessary to ensure fast, reliable and secure transmission of transaction data. Authorize.Net manages the routing of transactions just like a traditional credit card swipe machine you find in the physical retail world, however, Authorize.Net uses the Internet instead of a phone line. The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway is available 24/7 for processing transactions. We also offer a number of value-adding services to assist merchants in managing their businesses and protecting themselves from fraud. Additionally, the free, Authorize.Net Verified Merchant Seal can be added to a merchant's website to help build consumer confidence.

Chris Maunder
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
Chris is the Co-founder, Administrator, Architect, Chief Editor and Shameless Hack who wrote and runs CodeProject. He is also co-founder of Developer Media and ContentLab.IO. He's been programming since the 80's and has been, in various guides, an astrophysicist, bacyard mechanic, mathematician, physicist, breeder of carnivorous plants, hydrologist, geomorphologist, defence intelligence researcher and then, when all that got a bit rough on the nerves, a web developer.

His programming experience includes C/C++, C#, SQL, MFC, ASP.NET, TypeScript and far, far too much FORTRAN. He has worked on PocketPCs, Old mainframes, new Macs, cheap phones, and a CRAY YMP C90 behemoth but finds notebooks take up less desk space.

He is kind to small animals and has a soft spot for cheesecake.

Chris was born and bred in Australia but splits his time between Toronto and Melbourne, depending on the weather. For relaxation he is obsessively into road cycling, physiology, occasionally snowboarding and rock climbing, and wishes he were a storm chaser.

DerekT-P
Chief Technology Officer SOS
United Kingdom United Kingdom
First introduced to computing in 1969 while at school. Learned Elliot 903 machine code, punched cards by hand and sent off to a university for processing. Punching and syntax errors came back about a fortnight later. Subsequently the school got a teletype and access to a BASIC system. Really got the bug then and taught myself COBOL and wrote a COBOL interpreter using BASIC.
At Swansea Uni learnt FORTRAN and spent two summers using that to customise train simulation software at BR's Railway Technical Centre.
After graduating, spent 3 years with London Transport, working up from Trainee Programmer to Senior Programmer, using COBOL on both ICL and IBM mainframes, together with CICS.
Later went on to work for companies such as Unilever Computer Services (later became EDS), Cullinet Software (as International Programming Consultant), Synapse Computer Services (Applications Consultant), Prudential Insurance (Design Centre Manager), Dun+Bradstreet International (Business Systems Support Group Manager).
In 1995 I went freelance and formed Small Office Solutions. Initially also providing hardware support to small businesses, I also took on longer-term contracts using VisualBasic with Sainsbury, Tesco, BHs, Mothercare and many others. Later moved into providing full life-cycle consultancy and development to SMEs globally, working remotely most of the time. Applications have ranged from educational, personal finance, logistics, blogging platforms and many more.
Now partially retired and sharing some of my portfolio of code online via CodeProject.com
