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:

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.
Chris Maunder
Founder CodeProject
Canada Canada
Current passion project: CodeProject SenseAI. Please join in!

Chris is the Co-founder of the popular code-sharing site, the digital advertising agency and the content marketing agency ContentLab.IO.

He's been programming way too long and has been, in various guides, an astrophysicist, 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 serial entrepreneur.

Chris has programmed everything from FORTRAN on a CRAY to Python on a Pi, but generally leans on TypeScript, C#, and SQL for the front, middle and back bits of his applications. His current focus is on ensuring developers know enough about Artificial Intelligence to be dangerous.

GeneralWindows 8 Developer Preview: A First Perspective Pin
Terrence Dorsey14-Sep-11 7:17

via Jeff Hadfield, who's at BUILD keeping an eye on things for The Code Project:

By now, and especially if you have been following @thecodeproject on Twitter, you’ve seen a lot of Tuesday’s Windows 8 developer preview news.
Microsoft billed this developer-focused launch as a “new opportunity for developers.” And that it is, but exactly what the opportunity is remains to be seen. To their credit, the Microsoft teams have certainly done a lot of work on building new UI foundations, making touch an equal partner with keyboard/mouse. And the new hardware is also impressive. But while the pieces are all there, many questions remain to be resolved between now and when Windows 8 finally ships (we’re guessing in about a year).

There’s plenty of coverage about the new UI, and a lot of it can be found on the official Windows sites. We’ve taken careful notes – and we’re happy to add any commentary if you’d like, but rather than rehash the #bldwin Twitter hashtag (re-hashtag?), a few words of perspective might be better.
Our friend David Platt reminded us of his recent MSDN Magazine article and emphasized his admonitions there – about making sure the war hasn’t moved to new fronts while Microsoft continues to fight the same battle in the same place. Has the market moved on? Maybe. Can Microsoft lead the market again? Maybe. The company has a strong history of letting others blaze the way and then stepping ahead, much like stepping in front of a parade already in process. (Which in turn reminds us of the final scenes of Animal House, but with less debauchery.)

Developer buzz is mixed – excitement about the opportunity, sure, but fears also about it being too late. Here’s the thing: Windows still has dominant market share worldwide. In today’s presentations, Microsoft claimed over 450 million Windows 7 licenses sold, making it – as of last Friday – more in use than Windows XP. That’s a lot of seats, and a lot of opportunity for line of business apps and consumer apps.

But many, including me, express some skepticism about how ubiquitous and affordable touch-based PCs will become in the short term. Will they be more than a niche product? Perhaps, but the iPad, for example, is still not affordable for most. Get a nice Windows 8 slate/convertible at the $400-$500 USD price point, though, by next fall, and you’ve got a winner.

Again: metric tonnes of great new features and tonnes of “goodness” included in the APIs and UI guidelines. We’re anxious to get to play with the bits. Unsure how they will play on today’s hardware systems – dev bits and the Windows 8 slates were not available for press, so we won’t be trying any apps on our own. Let us know how you fare.

Finally, a few useful articles:
Sorry Apple, Windows 8 ushers in the post-post-PC era[^] The point here? That a capable computing device should be all things to all people, not a dumbed-down device that’s hard to do “real work” on. Agreed: I like my iPad, but as an authoring tool it’s a train wreck.

My friend Sean Gallagher has a more cynical look[^], but wisely points out that the big news is that Web developers who know JavaScript and HTML are now on an equal footing with traditional .NET (C#/C++/VB) devs. Interesting, and at least one of my developer friends expressed some concern about how that will affect traditional Windows developers. As I see it, Microsoft had no choice but to try to co-opt these “Web developers” in order to increase market share. The overall worldwide growth in ‘developers’ in general is coming from areas outside of the traditional .NET stack – so this is really their only choice.

There’s also a nice post at the Windows Team blog that shows a bunch of the UI updates[^]. If you can’t spare the time to watch the keynote (two and a half hours, seriously), read this but grab a few minutes to see the UI in motion in one of the videos.

And let’s say you’ve downloaded the bits already[^]. What to do? Try our friend Scott Hanselman’s guide (you’ll put your eye out, no warranties express or implied, YMMV) to running Win 8 from a VHD[^].

As always, let us know your experience, and post your tips and how-tos on the site.
