Robin Dewson has been hooked on programming ever since he bought his first computer, a Sinclair ZX80, in 1980. His first main application of his own was a Visual FoxPro application that could beused to run a fantasy league system. From there, realizing that the market place for Visual FoxPro in the United Kingdom was limited, he decided to learn Visual Basic and SQL Server. Starting out with SQL Server 6.5, he soon moved to SQL Server 7 and Visual Basic 5, where he became involved in developing several applications for clients in both the UK and the United States. He then moved on to SQL Server 2000 and Visual Basic 6, through to SQL Server Yukon and Visual Basic .NET. Robin is a consultant mainly in the city of London, where he has been for nearly eight years. He also has been developing a rugby-related website as well as maintaining his own site at www.fat-belly.com .Dewson, Robin is the author of 'Beginning SQL Server 2005 for Developers From Novice To Professional' with ISBN 9781590595886 and ISBN 1590595882.
