About Us

CodeProject was formed to provide developers with a place to meet and exchange ideas. We hope to provide developers with all the resources they need to help them in their day to day programming, as well as helping them keep up to date with the latest technologies.

Our team would like to thank all those who have contributed their time, energy, and articles to make the site what it is.

The guys running this place
Chris Maunder
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
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.
David Cunningham
Founder Developer Media
Canada Canada
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:

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.

Lisa Sidlow
United States United States
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 (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).
Marcin Ksiazkiewicz
Web Developer

I am an experienced graphic designer and web developer perfectly skilled in dealing with most of graphic editors and web coding standards.

I came a long way throughout those years. I started from simple flayers, baby pages, flash animations to corporate identity, campagin projects, e-commerce, e-magazines and script powered, user friendly, modern, proper websites.

Enjoing what I do, keeping head high and looking forward to challange the unknown of the web development world and get that lot Smile | :)
Michele Guido

Michele started her career as editor and publisher of an audio magazine, then made the move to the fledgling digital photography industry at a time when it took the better part of a day to upload a photo. From there she moved into high tech advertising and has spent the past 10 years representing IT and developer websites, helping companies connect with their customers and grow their businesses.

When she’s not selling advertising (which really is the best job ever!), she enjoys running through her neighborhood (for fun, not after or away from anyone) and practicing yoga. She also harbors a secret desire to be a park ranger!
