SIRVACodeGuy (formerly AWSCodeGuy) has been an IT pro for over ten years.
Starting with an A+ certification, it took him only a few months to get kicked out of hardware and into EDI data analysis, where he learned VBA in MS Excel 97 as a matter of self-preservation ("There's GOTTA be an easier way to do this!").
After a year of that role growing into support of an Access 97 MRP/EDI package, a project came up that required Java, so he set out to learn that, since there was nobody in the company who understood Java. The course at IVY Tech was fun, so he went back for VB.Net 1.0 and SQL Server.
That led to a new job writing Windows applications, where he learned about users who have no clue what they want and the concept of ever-changing specs and features.
A couple years of that led to a position writing web applications with ASP.Net and VB.Net 2.0, and some AJAX, Windows forms in C# 2.0, SQL Server Report Services.
Now working for SIRVA using all sorts of obscure, arcane technology like writing a .Net 3.5 dll which consumes one VB6 COM+ module and is consumed by a different VB6 COM+ module.
