Thearon Willis began his career in computers in 1980 as a computer operator. During the fall of 1980 he took a course in BASIC programming using the Radio Shack TSR-80 computer and has been hooked on programming ever since.

After learning the BASIC language, Thearon moved on to learn COBOL and began writing programs to help automate some of his daily tasks as a computer operator. Advancing his career, Thearon became an Operations Analyst and learned several other languages to assist in his job. In 1989, Thearon moved into Systems Programming and started programming in S370 assembler language. He coded batch programs in assembler language and then moved on to code CICS programs. The Help Desk and Network Operations used these batch and on-line programs to perform some of their daily tasks, such as monitoring CICS printers and polling sales. During this time, he started working with relational databases on the mainframe and immediately saw the benefits that relational databases provided. Between the years of 1988 and 1993, Thearon learned several more programming languages, which include QBASIC, Pascal and C++. Thearon decided that he enjoyed programming so much that he switched his career path and became a developer full time. The first application that Thearon worked on was written in assembler language and included over 70 assembler programs. To help automate some of the tasks that were performed by the department that used this application, he wrote several programs in Visual Basic. One of these programs read and processed data from message queues that were populated from the mainframe and performed automated balancing. Thearon currently works as a senior consultant and develops intranet applications using ASP, DHTML, XML, JavaScript, VBScript, VB COM components, and SQL Server. He lives with his wife Margie and daughter Stephanie in the Raleigh, North Carolina area.
