.NET Programmers Across the Globe

Our .NET community reaches across every nearly every country and continent – and I bet we can find some on Antarctica, if the weather is right. Today we wanted to highlight two of our .NET programmers spanning the globe.

Elemar Rodrigues Severo Junior

ncover_mvp_elemar_junior_twitterElemar was just 8 years old when he stumbled upon creating computer programs. Lucky for us – he still does!

Since 1998, he has focused all his time creating solutions for the Brazilian furniture industry, including 3D Interior Design, industrial automation, sales and management software. Because of this, he has been learning, teaching and using a lot of different technologies (like OpenGL, DirectX, .NET, NodeJS, MongoDB – WHEW!) and languages (like C#, C++, LISP, Objective-C, JavaScript).

He is a Microsoft Visual C# MVP, software architect, developer, speaker, consultant and trainer specialized in professional application development with Microsoft Technologies. You can check him out on his blog, podcast and twitter @elemarjr.

C. Augusto Proiete

C. Augusto Proiete is a trainer on Microsoft technologies and products. He is a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) since 2004, and is also an ASP.NET Microsoft MVP since 2009, due to his active contributions to technical communities in Portugal and Brazil.

He may look familiar to you. He has been speaking at the major Microsoft events in Portugal, mostly about software development on ASP.NET, Windows Phone, Windows Azure, and more recently Windows 8 Metro Style apps. He also runs the NetPonto .NET User Group, where he organizes in-person events every month with technical sessions about software development on the Microsoft .NET platform, and was speaker in several events, including TechDays Portugal and WebDay.

His current topics of interest include ASP .NET MVC, HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery, Windows 8 Metro style applications, Silverlight for Web, Silverlight for Windows Phone and Windows Azure. Keep up with him at his blog or on twitter @augustoproiete
