  • I create mobile web applications, Windows services and desktop solutions using the following.

    • C# Hybrid ASP.NET for SPA (Single Page Application).
    • C# Entity Framework with SQL-Server and Oracle.
    • C# WPF MVVM.
    • C# various types of utilities.
    • C# Windows services for redaction of sensitive documents, data extraction to name a few.
    • C# solutions with one percent or less VB.NET code.
    • ColdFusion
    • Develop and maintain SAAS for Bootstrap 4 styles.
    • Develop jQuery extensions.

    Last time I wrote a full VB.NET solution was in 2007 which is still running today. As far as I know there are a handful of VB.NET solutions I wrote for Oregon Department of Revenue written back in 2003 thru 2005 still running with zero issues.
