Whats more, they freely share their know-how with others.

                DevExpress MVP: Ackerson, Rich
Rich Ackerson

I graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in 1988, earning a degree in Computer Engineering. For the majority of my professional career I have designed and developed software solutions for the health care industry, including such specialties as home health, HME, pharmaceuticals, and ophthalmology. Recent endeavors have included work flow management and document imaging solutions. After 25 years in the industry I thought it was time for a change; I now work full time for a leading provider of software solutions targeting the world's financial market.

Through the years I've gained experience in an assortment of programming languages including BASIC, PowerBuilder, C/C++, Delphi, C# and Oxygene. I consider myself a Delphi developer first and foremost; my experiences include Object Pascal coding, application framework design, custom component creation, multi-tier implementations and IDE extension development. It is the latter, specifically my work writing plug-ins for CodeRush, that first drew me to Developer Express' DX-Squad. Writing custom plug-ins to extend the Delphi IDE, helping fellow CodeRush users, and hosting a website to provide a centralized repository for community plug-ins became a passion of mine.


I am the primary developer behind CodeSiteEx, an open-source add-on to Raize Software's CodeSite debugging utility that provides simpler method tracing, limited code profiling, and extensive content reporting methods. Through an arrangement with Raize Software, the latest releases of CodeSite now incorporate some of CodeSiteEx's more sophisticated features but the product itself remains a valuable part of a Delphi developer's toolkit.

Nate Woolls

I've been developing desktop software applications for Windows since 2000. The first professional development environment I cut my teeth on was Delphi 5, and I’ve been using Delphi since.

Beginning in 2002, I started specializing in developing web services, generally backed by a SQL Server database, along with desktop and web based web service clients. I began developing for ASP.NET in 2003, and began working with the rest of the .NET framework in earnest in 2007. In 2010 I started developing for multiple platforms including Mac OS X, iOS, and Windows Phone 7.


Starting in 2011 I began offering my services as a consultant covering all aspects of the software development lifecycle, including database development, managed, native, and mobile software development, scalability, testability, integration, and more. Visit to find out more.

I've been a professional .NET developer (C# preferred) for about 10 years and I've been employed by Logistic Dynamics, Inc. in Buffalo, New York since 2005.

                DevExpress MVP: Kitchener, Daryn
Daryn Kitchener

As a professional .NET developer, I have worked with some of Australia's largest organisations designing, testing and deploying a range of applications, websites and web applications to meet various outcomes. I have been developing for just over 20 years and enjoy coding with C#. As a developer and owner of a development business, productivity is important to me and the decision to start using DX controls 8 years ago has proven to be one of the best operational choices I have ever made. The controls provide a terrific set of options to solve complex business requirements whilst delivering applications of a high standard and consistent look and feel.

I am very passionate about the range of DevExpress products and with helping others understand the value these libraries add to any organisation or developer.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my beautiful wife Debbie and 2 children. In my spare time, I love a game of golf, watching a movie or just relaxing to some music.
