Mark Horner, Bristol, England:
     I have been working with Access for the last 3-4 years. First for a large educational company, then on to Lloyds Bank and now for Computershare (where I am a contractor on a daily rate of 250GBP) focused solely on Access. I have learnt on the job essentially (and through a LOT of self study in finding best practice online etc in places like access-programmers or stackoverflow) and my current role at Computershare is purely Access focused in developing Access databases to use as an interface from the company’s in house extremely old legacy system to churn out reports client ready.
     My educational background, I left college (UK college that is) before I finished my A levels to start working as education didn’t interest me I wanted to work and earn money, and during work I discovered my natural talent per say for Access/VBA and all things technical. It’s for this reason I have started studying for my degree with the Open University in the UK for a BSc in Computing and Business Studies (half and half, as both areas are of great interest to me) and I complete this in my spare time, usually a few hours a week as it isn’t that difficult currently in my 2nd year.
