My Services

    Microsoft Visual Basic / SQL Server

    I have been using Microsoft Visual Basic constantly since version 1 in 1991, through to the latest incarnation found in Visual Studio 2010. I am experienced with writing Windows applications, Windows services, middle-tier components, website applications and web services. I have previously passed the MCP exams in VB 4, 5 and 6 but am now an ardent fan of the .NET Framework.

    I have been using SQL Server from version 4.2 in 1993 through to the current SQL Server 2008, and am experienced both with the implementation and administration aspects, as well as database design and Transact-SQL.
