Code Architects was founded in 2002 in Santeramo in Colle (BA), by Francesco Balena and Giuseppe Dimauro, two passionate software developers with many years of experience, as well as authors of technical textbooks published by Microsoft Press USA and speakers at technical conferences in Italy and abroad. For a decade, Francesco and Giuseppe were the only two MSDN Regional Directors for Italy, a small group of about 150 experts from around the world, appointed directly by Microsoft USA.
Right from the start, Code Architects began hiring the best talents in the area. In 2006 we moved into a small villa and opened new divisions dealing with Cloud systems and infrastructure management and industrial automation. In 2017, we purchased a 10,000 square meters facility, which will give us the opportunity to continue our growth for a long time.
In 2008 we released the first version of VB Migration Partner, considered by many the best software for automatic migration of Visual Basic 6 programs to the .NET platform. Microsoft has recognized the value of our solution by accepting Code Architects – the only Italian software house – in the Microsoft ISV Next program (no longer operational) and Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP), reserved to companies offering innovative solutions for software development.
