PAUG 2018 Database Designer Conference at Silver Falls
George Young first encountered Microsoft Access when using the thirty-plus floppy disk versions of Office to teach Statistics and MIS in the early 1990’s. It was love at first sight. George has worked as a software developer for the past twenty-five years, including twelve at Microsoft (in just about every group other than Office). He is the founder and president of Dawson Butte Software, working primarily on .NET applications (often with Access somewhere in the mix). George still has a commercial site or two that is driven by an Access database sitting in the server file system. George is the president of the Denver Area Access Users Group and has spoken on Access and .NET at a variety of physical and virtual gatherings, including Access Day, Denver Dev Day, SharePoint Saturday, and the Access Web Apps, SQL Server with Access, and Access Latino America user groups at AccessUserGroups.org. One of his Access with Azure projects was featured in a presentation at the recent Microsoft Ignite conference. George Young Dawson Butte Software Greater Denver Area
