Dan Fernandez started the Coding4Fun Web site in 2004 with an unproven market and shoestring budget and built it into a powerhouse with over 1 million page views per month and viral YouTube videos which have been seen by millions. Dan was also the Lead Product Manager for Visual Studio Express and Popfly, both of which have had large industry adoption or critical acclaim with Visual Studio Express having over 17 million downloads and Popfly winning PC World's Top 25 Most Innovative Products Award in 2007. Dan has also given demos at conferences on Coding4Fun including TechEd Europe and TechEd Asia as well as being a regular contributor/editor for Coding4Fun.
"No misleading headline here. Coding4Fun (O'Reilly) by Dan Fernandez and Brian Peek, will actually help wannabe programmers, developers, etc., achieve some meaningful goals with coding languages such as C#, VB, Lua, ASP.NET, WPF, XNA Game Studio, and Popfly."
