I have more than 25 years of experiences in application development, mostly in client-server mode. I started with Basic then quickly move to Clipper (dBase compiler) and used it for many years.
I started developping MS Access applications back with version 1.0 of this product and seen it evolved over its current version. I also have experiences with MS Visual Basic, and .Net C# and general MS Office application development (Excel, Word).
I am currently MS SQL Server DBA and still continue to used MS Access on a daily basis.
I also taught programming for College students. I believe that application programming should start with good design that promote reusability and long term maintenability. I am a fervent defender of OO pinciples, where it make sense, which is _not_ everywhere. I am also writing programming tools and libraries to make my life easier.
I developed applications in many business domains:
Vehicule, building and Airplaine preventive/corrective maintenance
