Experience

I have made a program which is in use in 9 Magistrates Courts across country since 2004. It is in use and constant upgrades and changes as legislation changes. Since some of courts managed into same organization units, I have upgraded backend database to SQL and connect Courts over Internet in order to use and share same database.

And I did it - I made first electronic production tracking system with many electronic reports.

Qualifications

Microsoft Access MVP (2008)

Microsoft

MVPs are passionate about Microsoft technology and recognized for their exceptional technical expertise, their willingness to help others make the most of their technology, and for making a significant and positive impact on technical communities. This is no small feat: Of the more than 100 million social and technical community members worldwide, each year only about 3,800 are recognized as MVPs. MVPs are independent of Microsoft, with separate opinions and perspectives, and are able to represent the views of the community members with whom they engage every day. This was my first award of this type and I am really proud of it!
