ASP.NET Community
United States United States
The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.

Goran Bacvarovski
Architect
Canada Canada
About 20 years in the software industry - started with simple games programming for the at the time popular Commodore64 and Sinclair Z48, using basic. Moved along with VBA and Office programming macros for all kidns of automations in Office Applications including complex Databases and complete Software solutions developed in MS Access and SQL server later on. Visual Stuidio was native choice for my sofware developement career. Kept loyal to VB as language even though I am verse in other programming languages - the nature of my work in the last 8 years (software architect) keeps pushing toward VB as the most easiest to teach or broadcast the idea with.
Today I manage a .NET team of developers, business analysts, technical writters and atchitects; with applications that not only talk about but do implement enterprise software solutions with large number connections and processing power. I have been working in a capacity as a lead .NET architect for the last 3 years.

Tim Greenfield
Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
I am a software architect and engineer who has been working in the industry since 1994. Although I officially started writing software many years earlier at age 11 by authoring games, graphics demos, or whatever I found interesting. I even landed my first consulting job at age 16 implementing a newly invented mathimatical algorithm for a team of researchers at the local University.

I've designed and implemented hundreds if not thousands of applications: client, web, and hybrid of all scales and was a contributing author to the Black Belt programming column of Visual Basic Programmer's Journal.

My goals when coding are always to write clean, reusable and optimized code using the latest and technology, tools and techniques.
