Jeff Mayer is a Web Developer with over 28 years of computer experience. His first experience with a personal computer was in 1979 when he was the Business Manager of a college tavern and cafe at Rutgers University in New Jersey. The new Apple IIe was used to perform all of the accounting functions including payroll. The hot software application at the time was Visicalc, the first electronic spreadsheet.
In 1985, Jeff became Comptroller of a non-profit, social services agency and the IBM XT computer was the machine of choice. In his five years there, Jeff automated the manual bookkeeping system to a fully computerized, multi-user system (with three workstations) running under the Xenix (Unix) operating system.
Next, Jeff spent seven years with the fourth largest insurance company in the world as a mainframe programmer. There he learned Assembler, Cobol, PL1, JCL, and MVS.
In 2002, he attended school part time and developed skills in web development such as HTML, Java and Object Orient Programming (OOP). He received the Executive Director's Award upon graduation.
In his spare time (what spare time?), he runs a web site design firm, Jeffrey Mayer Enterprises, builds computers with his son, enjoys fine dining with his wife, and goes to the movies.
