RootAdmin 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 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.
Software Developer (Senior) The Code Project
Matthew works on improving the performance and experience of the Code Project site for users, clients, and administrators.
Matthew has more years of software develeopment, QA and architecture experience under his belt than he likes to admit. He gradutated for the University of Waterloo with a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering. He started out developing micro-processor based hardware and software including compilers and operating systems.
His current focus is on .NET web development including jQuery, Webforms, MVC, AJAX, and patterns and practices for creating better websites.
He is the author of the Munq IOC, the fastest ASP.NET focused IOC Container.
His non-programming passions include golf, pool, curling, reading and building stuff for the house.

Technical Writer CodeProject
Sean Ewington is the Content Manager for CodeProject.
His background in programming is primarily C++ and HTML, but has experience in other, "unsavoury" languages.
He loves movies, and likes to say "inconceivable" often, even if it does not mean what he thinks it means.
Our full time staff
The Code Project
Editing articles written by smart and experienced programmers on The Code Project is a job she loves and it keeps her updated on the latest technologies.
She has lived in four countries in the last 10 years and has a flair for learning new languages (not the programming ones).
She enjoys playing with her 3-year old son, travelling and listening to music.
The Code Project
In her free time, she tries out new dishes, reads a little, and puts together jigsaw puzzles. Originally from Trivandrum, Smitha currently lives with her husband and fellow CP'ian Nish [^] and her son Rohan in Columbus, Ohio.
RootAdmin is hosted on 4 web servers running Windows 2008 R2. Each box has between 8 and 16Gb RAM and runs standard hyperthreaded desktop-level intel chips. The web servers connect to heavy duty multi-CPU, mutli-core SQL servers running SQL 2008 R2. Networking is via gigabit NICs. We have 5 email servers, a couple of Active Directory servers, a big backup monstrosity, a handful of switches and about 10km of cabling. The server rack is warm to the touch.
