Define "Computer Programmer"! LOL!
I got out of the public programming business a long time ago, because 01100011% of clients I worked with didn't know what they wanted, and expected me to "fix it", because I was the programmer, and I can make the computer do anything.
It's an ungrateful line of work, to be sure!
These days I put my programming skills to use for personal reasons. In other words, to create utilities for my own personal use in order to get things done that commercial programs can't/won't let me do. For example, my own website. I created my own HTML editor that builds everything I need, leaving me to concentrate on the CONTENT of the site, not the design.
Although I haven't updated in a while...
I'm actually also in the process of developing an in-house application for the company where I work to do the same thing - maintain and update the online shop website (Dynax
). If you can recommend a good set of Delphi 2009 VCL components (preferably freeware with source) that can read/write Excel 2003/2007 files, I'd be grateful...
