Jim Nelson

Jim Nelson is the sole IT employee of a small company that makes dog toys -- the Kong Company in Golden, Colorado.

Jim spent the first thirty years of his professional life becoming extremely proficient in a long long dead language -- APL. For the last twenty of those years, he worked full time on a single application for a company handling Workers' Compensation self-insurance claims in California.

He only started using FoxPro in mid-2003 (working for the dog toy company) and has developed a number of sales analysis, forecasting, and inventory management systems. (Apparently, old dogs can learn new tricks.)

He has never authored any books or articles, has been a speaker only once before (at an APL conference in 1980), has no awards, a wife, two kids, and no pets.
