Creating a registry for Fellowship opportunities, and many other complete projects over the past 8 years.
I have similar experience with PHP and mySQL. I love working with osCommerce and oscMAX as a PHP shopping cart engine. I can customize it heavily or just get it going for you in it's native mode. I have years of work with these open source products on Windows and on Linux. I also partner with a hosting company that can provide these resources for hosting your projects.

Complete development of many applications using Borland Delphi programing for Windows executables. Both stand alone applications and clients for client/server applications including database connectivity. This includes development of a middleware RPC broker for a proprietary database that was here to fore unreachable by modern software clients, A utility to automate FTP processes between 8 hospitals, Client to remotely manage PC's in an environment that had thousands of PC on a LAN, An outpatient application for controlling and logging flow of patients thru the facility, and many others over the past 8 years.
Complete development of hundreds of hospital database applications using M or MUMPS programming language over 20 years experience. MUMPS is an ANSI standard language that many people have never heard of. It is now marketed by Intersystems under the name of Cache`.
I have a very broad background in computer programming that is backed by many years of real experience.
|Work terms:||Definition of Work:
Good projects result from good communication and good requirements defined up front in a contract. It doesn't have to be a complex legal document, just a clear understanding of what you want and how much you need. For example: "Build me a web site" is not a good set of requirements.
I prefer to conduct transaction through Guru SafePay Escrow system which better ensures both parties’ protection and satisfaction in the unlikely event that a dispute arises.
SafePay using Check, E-check, or Wire Transfer Funds is more economical for my bottom line due to fees. Transacting with these Payment Methods is mutually beneficial: I save fees attached to Credit Card and PayPal payments, and YOU earn Loyalty Dollars with Guru.
I am very available by phone, e-mail, IM, or Skype at most any time from 9am to 9pm East coast USA time.
