Claudio Nicora
Technical Lead CoolSoft
Italy Italy
I started programming in the early 1984, when I was 12, using each and every version of VB, from QuickBasic (1985) to VB.NET 11.0, but also C#, C++, PHP, JavaScript, Fortran, Pascal, Modula2, together with a lot of frameworks like Symfony, jQuery, Drupal.

My most popular project is VirtualMIDISynth, a software MIDI synthesizer (using .sf2 soundfont files) implemented as a virtual device driver. It works on all modern Windows OS from XP to 8, both 32 and 64 bit.

Another project of mine is DeCodEx (DEsigner CODe EXtractor), a free tool to split VisualStudio 2003 forms and controls source code into the new 2005/2008 partial classes format (*.vb and *.Designer.vb, or *.cs and *.Designer.cs).

I like writing tools to make my seveloper and SysAdmin life easier.

Elizalde Baguinon started programming while he was working at the Philippine Women's University in Taft Ave, Manila. He was an Audio Visual Technician then.

His past engagements were with a solutions company where MIFARE SmartCards for PC application is the main product, SmartPoint Solutions Corp, and with a pharmaceutical company called Unilab Consumer Health, a subsidiary of Unilab, where he handled web apps coded in ASP.NET 2005.
