Mike was an employee of Saint Elizabeth Health Care in Toronto http://www.saintelizabeth.com until September 29. This way I'll have more time to devote to Max Frame -based applications out of respect for Drew Speedie.
He has written many applications in industries such as Telecommunications, Consumer Surveying, Health Care and Home Building. The consumer survey and telecommunications applications involved multi-million record tables.
He can do analysis, data modelling, design and development of custom applications in Visual Foxpro.
