Maryland is a state located in the Mid Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia to the south and west, Pennsylvania to the north, and Delaware to the east. Historically it was part of the Chesapeake Colonies where planters cultivated tobacco as a cash crop dependent on slave labor. It is comparable in size to the European country of Belgium.

Maryland is also home to the University of Maryland, which offers one of the most competitive programs in Computer Science.

CCD, LLC has called Maryland its home since 2007 since relocating from Washington DC.
