John Lonberger

Software / Database Systems Design, Development and Support

My entire professional career has been heavily biased towards the design, development and support of computer systems that were implicitly crucial to the overall application, be it process control, materials handling or ISO systems tracking.  Have developed applications using several computer tools (Oracle, Paradox, html, assembly languages, COBOL, Excel VBA…) My major focus is on Access, SQL Server and VB.NET based work.  I also teach AB PLC programming to college students at the University of Arkansas in Fort Smith and Fayetteville.   One recent project involved downloading IBM AS/400-DB2 data into SQL Server tables via VB.NET code (for speed), to service factory floor applications using Acess user screens and reporting.
