Programming and Database Support Volunteer
Calibre operates a network computer system which contains two databases, one containing all member (over 19,000) information and the second our library data (some 8,000 titles). Together they enable Calibre to issue audio books to and receive them from members.
We currently use an IBM AS400 system which has recently been converted by ASNA International from an iSeries RPG based system to native Microsoft.NET and SQL Server and true ASP based web pages. We need an IT volunteer to assist in the maintenance of the system and to troubleshoot, develop, test and implement incremental programme changes.
We are looking for someone with programming skills and knowledge of Microsoft.NET and SQL Server and true ASP based web pages, with an excellent understanding of database design and support.
