My Experience

Most of my experience is procedural DATAFLEX programming, gained in a broad range of industries, including Finance, Technical and Local Government. I have designed complete Dataflex database, data entry/reporting systems and maintained and enhanced large systems for major corporations.

I have also designed and implemented websites utilising .NET, PhP/MySQl, HTML5 and CSS. In addition to this I work with Excel spreadsheets using various LOOKUP functions, Pivot Tables, Named Ranges, Absolute,Relative & Mixed Cell referencing and some VBA.

in the scroll section below are the Dataflex positions I have held. Most were temporary, contract positions but all were extended and indeed the 6 month contract for Homecomings Financial lasted over 8 years. In addition to these roles I have completed various small Dataflex projects.
