About Marco Bellinaso

Marco Bellinaso lives in a small town close to Venice, Italy. He works as a software developer and trainer for Code Architects Srl (, an Italian company that specializes in .NET. He has been working with VB, C/C++, ASP, and other Microsoft tools for several years, specializing in User Interface, API, and ActiveX/COM design and programming, but is now spending all his time on the .NET Framework, using C# and VB.NET. He s been working with the .NET Framework since the Beta 1, and is now particularly interested in e commerce design and implementation solutions with SQL Server, ASP.NET, and web services, with both C# and VB.NET. He is part of the VB 2 The Max team (, a popular website for VB and .NET developers, for which he writes articles and commercial software, such as add ins for MS Visual Studio and other utilities for VB and .NET developers. In particular, he co authored the award winning VB Maximizer VB6 add in. Kevin Hoffman has always loved computers and computer programming. He first got hooked when he received a Commodore VIC 20 from his grandfather, who had repaired it after finding it in the trash. He then started a prolific but unprofitable career writing shareware games and utilities for electronic bulletin board systems. He started working as a programmer while still in college, writing computer interfaces to solar measurement devices and various other scientific instruments. Moving to Oregon, he did everything from technical support to tuning Unix kernels, and eventually working as an ASP programmer for 800.COM, a popular on line electronics retailer. From there he moved on to working on large, enterprise ASP applications. Then he finally found .NET, which he now spends 100% of his programming and learning efforts on. A big C# fan, who would use it to do everything including brush his teeth if only he could figure out how, Kevin has been writing on .NET for Wrox since the middle of Beta 1. He plans to continue until we get tired of him. He s currently in Houston, Texas sweating a lot and working on web services and other large scale .NET applications.
