vbRad.com was conceived by two longtime
Visual Basic programmers: Matthew Ferry and Robert
would be us. We've been talking about creating a web site for a long
time and finally found enough time and energy to get it going. Now that the
site is online, we found that we use it for reference or
code repository ourselves. Meanwhile, we add new code, tricks, tips and other
snippets all the time, so check back often to find new ways to improve the way
and the the speed at which you program.
Matthew Ferry is the owner & the principal
developer of Pueblo Systems - a
developer shop that specializes in creating custom solutions for small to
midsize businesses. He's been programming professionally since 1993.
He started programming in Visual Basic since version 3.0. Matthew
is also fluent in other computer languages and environments, such
in distributed programming with Visual Basic, having started to employ n-tier
architecture since the beta version of VB4. Matthew is
an expert on COM, DCOM and fishing. Through the years,
he acquired extensive experience with a variety of databases, including Sybase, Access, SQL
Server, Oracle and others.
Robert Gelb has been programming since 1991 and professionally since 1994. Having
started in Quick Basic and C, he moved on Visual Basic after
discovering its potential. Robert has initially worked for a
startup called Data Express, where he
designed mapping, communications and various other software for wireless
devices. Other than Visual Basic, which is Robert's specialty, he is also comfortable
in C/C++, ASP & related technologies,
communications, database, mapping (GIS) technologies. Currently, Robert
works developing various database applications.
