HTMLGoodies Community Mentors: ASP
I have worked professionally as an ASP and VB developer for 3 years after having done HTML development for 4 years prior to that. After graduating college I went to work in the computer hardware field before making the leap to software development in 1999 for Lotus Notes. My past history of HTML programming came calling and I moved on to a project of updating an old VAX Basic customer management system in the cable industry to a web application running across 4 web servers and 2 database servers using ASP, VB, and Oracle. Since then I have gone on to develop a large e-commerce site running on IIS, Site Server 3 Commerce, and MS SQL Server 7 / 2000. This has been an ongoing project with new development and support for previously developed code while working on a multitude of ASP based web sites including a file management system and resume posting service.
My personal hobbies include scale car modeling, running a web site for modelers (http://car-modeller.cjb.net/), and building robots.
I have worked with Active Server Pages technology since its inception, both as a full time employee and contractor for companies such as Sprint and Aventis InPharma.
Currently, I am employed full time at a pediatric hospital in the mid west. I develop distributed applications for them utilizing Visual Basic, ASP, COM+ and T-SQL. I also develop database driven, dynamic internet applications for organizations in my spare time...when I'm not being harassed by my two cats, or spending time with my wife.
I am currently a freelance web developer doing outsourced and in house development for third-party companies. I have been active in Microsoft DNA application development for the past 4 years, and general development for the past 7. My strong points include COM, database architecture, and ASP.
