About the Community Credit Team

Overview of Community Credit

Community Credit was founded by David Silverlight, a Microsoft MVP and an active member of the development community, as a way to reward fellow IT Professionals who have contributed toward the development community. Currently, the rewards for these contributions are simply the satisfaction of helping colleagues in the development community. Now, they can be rewarded by recieving not only geeky gifts like a Swiss Army USB Drives, Caffeinated Hot Sauce or a Binary Wall Clock, but they also recieve a cool plaque to hang on their wall and impress their coworkers.

About David Silverlight

David Silverlight, a Microsoft MVP and an active member of the development community, is an independent consultant who has been contributing to the development community for a number of years with his websites, XMLPitstop.com and NonProfitways.com, speaking at User Groups and local conferences, answering questions on discussion boards and creating downloadable examples. You can also check out his Talking Portfolio to check out some of the cool projects he has built. David can be contacted at HeadGeek@XMLPitstop.com. David apparently has way too much free time!


About Alex Januschewsky

Alex Januschewsky, a Microsoft MVP Mobile Devices from Austria and an active member of many Windows Mobile based communities, is owner of an Austrian advertising agency. He is married and has a little son. His website http://www.pocketpc-salzburg.at features daily news, downloads, links, reviews and a support forum for german speaking users. He can be found on his website, at local usermeetings and public newsgroups answering many questions from other users. Alex speaks German and English and can be contacted at alex@pocketpc-salzburg.at. And - as all MVPs - he has too much free time also :)

Alex is also a very well know contributor to the austrian IT community. Chances are, if you are in Austria, Switzerland, German or just about anywhere else in europe, you will probably have heard about Community Credit from him. We have also started to display descriptions of our site and prizes in German (other languages soon to come) and, thanks to his fluency in German, we will soon have a German version of Community-Credit. If you need convincing of his dedication to the IT community, you need to look no further than the All time Earners list, in which he claimed the All-Time top spot within just one month.
