Database Solutions

Databases are the best way to organize information on contacts (clients, customers, personnel, students), expenses, inventory, invoices, or virtually any large amount of information. If you have piles of paperwork, or a mishmash of files on your computer, The Database Guru can improve how it's all organized and ensure that your valuable information is working to your best advantage.

The Database Guru has intimate knowledge of the structure and design of a databases. Some things The Database Guru specializes in are interface usability, consistency of data collection, and automation of common tasks. One of his favorite things is creating database-driven websites to add more value to your information.

The Database Guru has created numerous databases for many purposes such as to track such things as business clients, billing invoices, project tasks, employees, libraries, version release tracking, fundraising, software bugs, and more.

The Database Guru's primary career is software testing and he has been the head of QA (Quality Assurance) departments in publicly owned software companies since 1994, so we assure you that our work is very professional.

Internet Databases

The Database Guru enjoys making database-driven web sites that always keep your site current. That means that the data on your site is dynamically generated by the data in your database. (The opposite is the standard static site that never change unless you type up new web pages). Once the site is up, you can frequently update content on your site using a simple interface. Updates could be as major as a whole listing of new inventory (including descriptions, prices, etc.) or an occasional new line of text. This added flexibility saves you from having to pay someone each time you need changes. Databases can be designed for plain desktop use or for output to the web.

Training

Perhaps you'd like to learn how to design databases yourself? For certain projects, it might be a more economical solution and would give you a lot of flexibility with your project (often as you use the database you come up with new features you want and it's best if you can add them yourself rather than having to pay me to do the work). The Database Guru has a degree in teaching and loves sharing his craft. The Database Guru can also teach other computer skills such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Access), Internet, scripting languages (HTML, XML, Javascript), software testing, and general computer usage. We provide a lot of useful tips and tricks for organizing your work on the computer and ways to do your work more efficiently. The Database Guru will customize a course to your specifications. We can provide references for computer instruction.
