I'm an independent software developer located in Sweden and I have more than 10 years experience of software development. During these years I have been working at Cell Network, which is one of Swedens largest consulting companies, for 5 years and thereafter I have successfully been running my own consulting company for the last 2 years. I specialize in all kind of system programming in the Win32 environments, primarily NT/2000, but also take on development of end user applications. During my consulting years I have been contracted fulltime at Ericsson for almost 4 years and have been involved in a lot of large projects. One of the projects I have been involved in is Stack-On-A-Card which you can read more about at <A href=""></A>. Other projects I have done involves areas such as Windows services, TCP/IP communication, distributed systems based on DCOM etc. I take pride in developing quality software and always give my customers full attention. To start with I will only occassionally bid on projects at Rent-A-Coder and only when I find a project interesting and have time to spare.

  Very nice job, it was my first time using Rentacoder and surely not the last one.

I wasn't too sure about using remote coder for my project but after my experience with Gandalf, it wont be the last.

Very quick and response.

Thank you.
