About Me

My name is Michael Akin. 

 

Personal Life

Professionally, I am an experienced professional senior software developer with more 30 years of development experience.  I have programmed with  many languages in the past, but my most current is C# and I am really enjoying using it.  It makes so many things much easier.

I am married to Heather, my bride of 30 years and we have have two grown kids, a son-in-law and a grand-daughter.

Professional Life

I also have about many years of experience with Microsoft SQL Server and I really love working with it.  I have started from the ground up with SQL Server installing it, designing schema, configuring replication, developing stored procedures, DTS Packages (Now SSIS), scheduled jobs, wrote reports, wrote ETL procedures from other databases (using a C# command line program).

More About me

Now, how did I get started with computers?  I was destined to work with computers and program.  I started at an early age in my mothers bookkeeping and tax business by writing reports for her clients.  Since then, I have had a extensive experience programming in different languages, including:  C#, Delphi, T-SQL, C, C++, Basic, COBOL, VB, T-SQL, DataFlex.  I have worked the last few years programming interfaces to web services and PDF work.

Side Hustle

For fun and a side job, I do photography at Michael Akin Photography capturing beautiful memories for your family. 

When I was 12 I got interested in photography when I worked as an assistant for a pregnant wedding photographer.  I played around with it for quite a while after that and got busy with life it kind of fell by the wayside.  I picked it back up after my oldest daughter wanted me to take her senior photos, so, I bought new digital camera and took her photos.  Then it came time and my youngest daughter also wanted me to take her senior photos and the rest is history.

In October 2011, I entered Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk and won the best photo for the Oklahoma City area.  I cropped part of it for the header of this web site.  I didn’t really like that photo (I wanted to enter the duck picture), but my wife picked it and said to enter that one.  And you know what?  She was right!  I won with it. See it below.
