Kevin Bell

Access 20th anniversary "World Tour”

Kevin Bell

Join us for this special evening to take a look back at the origins of Access, how it evolved and where it is going. We will start by looking back 20 years ago at the first release of Microsoft Access, and how it has evolved over the years into a robust client server front-end. Then we will explore the 11th release of Access, the new Access 2013. Access 2013 takes a dramatic new approach to creating databases application and we will explore its architecture and features. We will also discuss how your existing Access skills can be leveraged with Access 2013.

Kevin is a testing software engineer on the Microsoft Access team in Redmond Washington. Prior to joining Microsoft in 2008, he spent 15 years running a consulting practice that specialized in creating custom client server applications for small businesses. Kevin has been working with Microsoft Access since version 1.0 and SQL Server since version 4.21.
