If you build the Query executer tool in a VB.NET, you need to check the input query syntax before getting the results. This tip gives you a small idea of how to get the syntactic errors from the VB.NET front end screen by calling already created stored procedure.

I've been paid as a programmer since 1982 with experience in Pascal, and C++ (both self-taught), and began writing Windows programs in 1991 using Visual C++ and MFC. In the 2nd half of 2007, I started writing C# Windows Forms and ASP.Net applications, and have since done WPF, Silverlight, WCF, web services, and Windows services.

My weakest point is that my moments of clarity are too brief to hold a meaningful conversation that requires more than 30 seconds to complete. Thankfully, grunts of agreement are all that is required to conduct most discussions without committing to any particular belief system.

CEO PC's Xcetra

My first experience with computers was when my mom gave a Timex Sinclair 1000 to me for Christmas some time in the late 70's (I still have it)There I learned to copy code from magazines to save to cassette tapes for playing games.

Since then I have dabbled in:
Basic,Qbasic,ruby,python,Java Script, HTML, CSS, C#, C++, Perl, and a few other I can't think of off hand.
Now I Mainly work with VB Script and VB.Net
I Prefer to build programs that make use of the GUI so I don't have to remember all of the syntax for console apps. I realy don't care much for HTML because of the way you build and then run to see if it looks right. Also the new WPF is to much like HTML so I steer clear of it for now.
Most of what I build is for getting information from a system to use in system repair.I make heavy use of the WMI classes. Why reinvent something.

I started coding back in high school. My "Computer Science" subject for grade 10 was actually an introduction to programming in Delphi. I struggled a lot and was fairly disheartened and frustrated by the time I got to the end of the book.
That changed, though, when I found an introduction to HTML in the back after all the Delphi. I was hooked! It was simple and I could see the results of my work as I did it.

I kept teaching myself over the years and branched out into other languages as I found my requirements changing.
The first "server-side" tech I learnt was asp.net with visual basic code behind.

Now that I'm working with it as a day job, I've moved over to PHP for my personal projects, so the learning continues.

When I'm not coding, I'm either playing World of Warcraft, some other game or hanging out with friends. I enjoy playing pool and ice skating as "extra curricular" activities.
