About Us

CodeProject was formed to allow developers to freely share their knowledge, code and ideas. We believe that by opening your code to others, by teaching those who are learning, and by sharing our daily experiences we all become better programmers.

We understand that no matter how advanced you are in your field, we were all beginners once. There's always something more to learn.

CoFounders

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.
David Cunningham
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
I started photo-etching circuit boards when I was 8, and at 11 was haunting the halls and computer science labs at the local university 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 6 years in a row.

Here's my professional profile on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/davidcunningham

In 2007 Microsoft acquired technology from one of my companies, Dundas Data Visualization, for inclusion in SQL Server.

I live in Toronto and enjoy photography, scuba, food, and motorcycle riding.

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.

Laurie lives at a ski resort in Lake Tahoe, CA, and during the winter you can try (good luck!) to catch her racing down the slopes during lunchtime every day.

When she isn't working with her clients in the developer space, Laurie loves to travel and takes full advantage of the great outdoors, skiing all winter and hiking/kayaking in the summer.
