Cathan Kirkwood

Started working with databases in 1984. Clients have kept pushing me into front end programming over the years, giving me a widely varied background in VB, ASP, HTC, SQL, DHTML, COM, RPG, Cobol, Fortran (how many people know what .HTC is anymore...grin). I've worked with SQL Server in particular since version 4.2 was released. I've worked with DB2, AS\400's, Sybase, Oracle, Informix, Alpha4 & 5, Access (all versions to date.) (Boy, I almost didn't even mention that one.), and a lot of databases which people still debate as to whether they were even databases or not. Hold a lot of different certificates I got before I realized how little they matter.
