from Customers & Clients:
A Long-Term Client in New York City:
"We have tremendous confidence in Peter Brown because he's thoroughly honest, and he's a programmer who knows what he's doing. He's always there to assist us when we need something for our website, and he goes the extra mile frequently. His rates are reasonable, and he's very personable. Most of all, he's *easy* to work with. He's not grumpy when we call him up, as some programmers might be. We've used his services for over ten years, and we will continue to do so. We highly recommend him."
~ Jeff Schiller, CEO, J&J Watch Repair, New York
Major Client in Los Angeles:
of the hardest parts of developing a company database is finding
the right programmer to do the job. I like working with Peter
Brown because he always tries to understand the project from
the user's point of view. He makes a lot of effort to anticipate
needs and goes the extra mile to make sure the process is
logical, clever and thorough. I've worked with Peter for two
years now and find him to be very responsive; extremely knowledgeable;
reliable; and a real pleasure to work with."
Allen ~ Former Director of Information Technology
Formerly with The David Lewis Company, Inc.
~ Los Angeles,
programmed for over 20 years, I am not easy to please. Peter's
programming exceeded my expectations with solid design, innovative
techniques that provided additional functionality and flexibility,
and even taught this old dog a new trick or two. His communication
during the project was excellent. I recommend his services."
Major Client in Silicon Alley in Manhattan:
have worked with many programmers over the years and never
have I worked with a programmer who not only understood programming
but also understood that great programming cannot hide poor
logic. Peter F. Brown's ability to deal with people and his
understanding of logic, coupled with his programming knowledge,
made him by far the best programmer I have ever had the pleasure
of working with."
Chief Operating Officer and Founder
Extreme Interactive Media Inc.
New York, NY
Major Client in Silicon Valley:
"Of the dozens of programmers with whom we have had contact
during the past couple of years, Peter Brown stands head-and-shoulders
above the rest. This I say categorically and without hesitation.
The programming he has written for us works very well. Peter
is a rare combination of talent, competence and responsibility.
My only regret is that I did not find him sooner!"
Daniel K. Berman, Ph.D.
Former Director, CyberTip4theDay
San Francisco Bay Area
Major Client in Virginia:
"Ten years ago Peter Brown wrote a large database program
for Central Virginia Maintenance that has proven to be extremely
robust. It's now January, 2001, and the program has demonstrated
its complete Y2K compliance. We've processed millions of
dollars in invoices with this program. We use this program
on a daily basis and couldn't imagine life without it now.
It has been an enjoyable and trouble-free program -- it's
still going strong! Thank you Peter!"

is working great, and your code is clean and efficient. I
only wish I could code that well! - Thanks again for your
Scheible Key Concepts Site Publishing
saw your perl bulletin board program and it is great to look
at a perl program that doesn't look like line noise!"
Major Client in Missouri:
"The Medical Society in Springfield, MO and all of the physicians
locally and our two local medical centers are truly impressed
by your outstanding work with our database project and MySQL
programming. Our project was challenging and has been in
the works for 6 years. I had had two other programmers help
me with this project and we had not been able to code things
so that everything worked well. You completed our programming
and set up our MySQL database in record time and everything
really know your stuff when it comes to programming, managing
databases on the Internet, and MySQL programming. Your expertise
is phenomenal and we are truly appreciative of your outstanding
couple of years ago you also helped us with the physician
contact system for our 400 physician group owned by our
local 1000 bed hospital. We had asked local professionals
with a nationally known company about the possibility of
helping us with this and they had a hard time understanding
the project and what we wanted to be done and their price
estimate was huge. You completed that project in record
time and for minimal expense. We are truly impressed with
your expertise. You know more about MySQL and these sort
of programming matters than anyone I or my local computer
professionals have ever encountered. Again, many thanks
for your outstanding assistance. Sincerely,"

Senior C++ Programmer/Analyst
about Brown's programming services and his
Open Source application "FutureSQL":
"I am a senior C++ programmer/analyst
for a former Fortune 500 company (a Fortune 500 company
before my division was split off in 1999) and worked as
the corporate webmaster for 3 years.
During that time, our company undertook a
re-hosting of the web site from a proprietary web application
to an open standards set of applications including Apache,
PERL, Java and MySQL. For this project, we hired Peter Brown
as a MySQL and PERL programmer.
He was able to complete 3 applications that
were vital to the success of this project. He created a
MySQL/Perl based search engine for the site that was easy
to maintain and update. A comprehensive search engine had
not existed on the site before this time and was very important
to senior management as a selling point for the re-hosting
His second contribution to this project was
a PERL based parser for extracting the content of the proprietary
web application into html web pages, MySQL data tables and
PERL scripts for active page content.
His final contribution was the translation
of the most complicated page on the web site. This was a
multi-table based web order/specification page allowing
for the order and customization of parts for one of the
engineering divisions of the company.
All this work when completed won highest
praise for the whole re-hosting effort within the company.
In my work with Peter, I have found his code to be consistently
innovative, forward looking and adaptable. Solutions he
provided then work today and are easy to maintain and improve.
It has also been my pleasure to review his
current Open Source work and find to my pleasure that he
has taken his web programming and data base development
skills to greater levels of complexity. The production of
a generic solution to an engineering problem is always much
more difficult than creation of a specific application.
Peter has succeeded with his FutureSQL product.
This is an excellent Open Source offering.
In conclusion, for clear, concise, professional
solutions to your web and database development projects
you can not have a better man on your team than Peter Brown."
