Kevin Grittner

Kevin is currently employed as a database administrator with the Wisconsin Court System. He's been making a living in the computer industry since 1972. He started a consulting company in 1980 after working in data control, operations, programming, systems analysis, and design. He was finally lured back to employee status in his current position after more than a quarter century of consulting.

Kevin has experience with many types of applications in many types of organizations, businesses, and government. In 1984 he was the architect and primary author of the PROBER database and development system, used by thousands of corrections agencies, health departments, hospitals, and fire departments around the world. (The last known use was a statewide health department which converted off the product in 2006.) He has also developed application development platforms used by clients to speed development, improve standardization, and provide portability.
