I started to develop custom software since 1981 while using dBase III from Aston Tate. From there I moved to FoxBase and to FoxPro and ended up working with Visual FoxPro until Microsoft stopped supporting that great engine. With the Visual FoxPro, I developed the VisualRep which is Report and Query Engine.
Years ago, I moved to dot net and then was introduced to Alpha Five which is a software development engine and also known as Alpha AnyWhere in 2011. The funny story behind it is, the owner of Alpha AnyWhere Richard Rabins called me, and I thought that he was one these sales people that just wanted to sell me something. From that time Alpha AnyWhere became one of our major tools we use for Custom Software Development. One of our major projects that I developed while using Alpha AnyWhere was for the Avis Car Rental contract manager.
In addition, in 2006, I started to work with MS SQL database engine and since that we use it as back end for any custom software my company develop. At that time, I started heavily to get involved with data transformation and data cleansing with TBs of tables while using SSIS.
We are also a dot net development company, and one of our projects is a screen scrapping from different web sites.
I have a degree in Electrical Engineering and MBA majoring in Management Information System. You may check some of my articles in my computer consulting blog which handles different SQL consulting and Remote DBA services we provide and some of the custom software that we developed.
