Areas Of Expertise: 
I have extensive experience in the following areas:
Visual Basic
SQL Server
Office Automation
Client/Server (n-tier)
Win32 API programming
Microsoft Operating Systems
Exchange Server
FTP/SMTP/NNTP protocols
TCP/IP development
Visual Basic Add-Ins

I have been in the computer industry for over 10 years and developing software for the last 6 years. Some industries that I have specialized in include Point of Sale, Sales Force Automation, Futures and Options Market Data, Online training and tracking system and Network Management. I rarely charge for independent research in new areas meaning you only pay for real work and not my education.

  Work done extremely quick and through. Coder gave me dozens of updates to test and make suggestions. Coder and I went it two different directions in what we were trying to achieve, once I was able to express exactly what I was looking for from coders prototype he was able to complete the job in less than 24 hours. He even threw in some upgrades and improvements that I had not thought of. Coder is highly motivated and has an excellent knowledge of VB programming. I would recommend this coder if you are in need of VB programming.
