Classic ASP and ASP.Net Programming
This page is about Microsoft's original Active Server Pages (now called "Classic" ASP). See our ASP.Net page if you are interested in the latest Microsoft ASP programming language. But if it is Classic ASP Programming you are looking for then please read on.
Classic ASP Programming at Cambria
Cambria programmers embarked upon their first ASP program back in 1997 and since that time there has not been a day when there have not been ongoing ASP projects. Today ASP.Net has replaced ASP for new projects, but even now we maintain many programs written in earlier versions of ASP (such as our site which we have seen no reason to change).
Cambria ASP Developers in Major Early Projects
Much of our early ASP work was done in our office in Philadelphia which was the predecessor of our Manila subsidiary. Old Clients will remember Kathleen Fisher, the genius behind such Cambria ASP products as the Cambria E-Commerce Store, the Cambria Time and Billing System, and the Cambria Calendar software that are used in many of Cambria's programming projects as well as in numerous web-enabled database projects and our own internal systems.
Other stars from Philly are Natalia Gabrielian, a Classic ASP Programmer when she joined Cambria in 1999. She used ASP to write the Cambria CRMS product and has led or participated in many ASP programming projects. These included one for the Napoli School in which students can sign up for classes and choose their own schedules on the web. She also headed up a major Asp Web Development project for an international drug company based in India.
Philly ASP programmer James Bickley was primarily instrumental in using ASP to create software for document management purposes and, in particular, they created the document management engine that is at the heart of several major ASP programming projects.
Now lets Bring this Story up to date
Today we have a whole new team of Classic ASP programmers here in the Philippines. Three members of this group have been working for a year, with Alicia, a veteran Classic ASP Programmer, as the project leader, on a major maintenance and development project for a software services company. When and if we get permission to publicize it we will write it up as we have done with those mentioned below on this page.
Big Classic ASP projects like this are rare these days but three of the four here are experienced ASP.Net programmers in addition to Classic ASP so they will be kept busy no matter what happens. In the meantime this project shows no sign of slackening and we always have enough small maintenance projects to keep busy and maintain our capability
Classic ASP Development Projects
It is more than a document management system. From remote locations, an employee may create new projects, schedule ongoing projects, and view all documents related to their work that have come into the main office. The system has eliminated the need for a great deal of mail or document couriers and has improved the communication and sharing of information. The system acts as the nerve center for their company, with tens of gigabytes of documents and images stored in the database over the past year, and this usage is accelerating.
1 Cambria Client Roger Williams. The program you use every day is an “executable”. It is created from “source code” written by the programmer. If you own it, anyone can modify the program. If not, you are at the mercy of the vendor. Make sure you own it.
