I am Larry Boeldt, application architect, network engineer, web farm designer and solutions developer since 1990, the internet is the largest part of my professional career. I learned of the internet in 1994, and Since 1996 I've focused primarily on internet application development. Here's a list of my latest projects.

About boeldt.net

When I made the decision to become a web developer I did not realize at first the other skills required, SQL Server, Visual Basic, COM programming, IIS automation, scripting technologies. Although I was surprised at the required skillset for a web developer and system architect, I was ready for the challenge. Today I spend time writing my personal projects, and working as director of IT for Culligan International.

I am completely enamored of technology...especially the internet. Most tech-geeks know just what a thrill it is to bind technologies into workable solutions. I would be so bold as to call it an art form.
