Kevin Spencer started programming in C in the early 1990s and wrote a number of shareware programs for DOS, most of which were door programs for BBSs. In the process, he learned to construct relational databases in C, and later worked with Microsoft Visual FoxPro and Access. As Internet database connectivity technologies began to emerge from Microsoft, he learned them as well. He then started his own business, Site Design by TAKempis, which specializes in Internet database application programming with ASP/ADO. Microsoft awarded him with the "Most Valuable Professional" award in 1997. He has written articles about Microsoft FrontPage and ASP/ADO for several online magazines, including ASP Today.
