Since 1985, Eddie has developed or co-developed, maintained and provided customer service for over 50 custom software applications for Huntsman Corporation, Texaco Chemical Company, and others. He has extensive experience in creating data warehouses and database-driven applications that use PostgreSQL, Microsoft® SQL Server, FairCom® Server, MySQL®, Oracle®, Apache Derby, Microsoft Visual FoxPro, and Borland®'s Paradox®. His most recent projects involve GIS (geospatial information system), spatially-enabled database servers and Google™ Maps API.
