My name is Tim Batt. I'm 32 years old and happily married with two children. I enjoy participating in church activities, playing the drums and guitar, geocaching, mountain biking, and of course, programming!

Utilizing the RentACoder system is helping to build a reputation that will make us more successfull in marketing our specialized software solutions.

What sets my abilities apart from others'?

I believe that my greatest advantage as a software developer is my experience as a business owner. Owning a trucking business gives me a respect for others' requirements and expectations. I can easily see things from the buyer's perspective. I can relate to the demands you face in resolving your needs. I understand that choosing software solutions may not be your primary responsibility.

In all of my business endeavors, I have always programmed my own solutions. From payroll taxes to truck maintenance to online invoice systems, business ownership has been the avenue for fulfillment of my programming passion. I have many years experience developing, testing, and training users of all ages with my applications.
