An Introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services
Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 at 11h32
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is the Microsoft answer to reporting tools like Crystal Reports.

On site Full Time VFP consulting, Irvine, CA
Friday, August 21st, 2015 at 20h07

C# experience is also desired. The location is in Irvine, California. You must be on site in order to be considered, no exceptions. Rate depends on VFP/C# experience. I don't know the actual rate but I wouldn't be posting this unless it is worthwhile. I have consulted there on site in the past.

What do you do when your customer says that your application is too slow? How can you figure out what's slowing things down? How can you make it faster?
