General Services Administration (GSA)
Nannette joined GSA to tackle an application riddled with technical problems which
hampered GSA's ability to properly run the internal control program. She demonstrated
exceptional analytical abilities, cutting edge knowledge of the industry, and a
keen ability to understand the needs of the users and translate those needs into
a simple, user-friendly application which went above and beyond the expectations
of the customer. Users and administrators of the application have had nothing but
praise at the success of the project and the end product. She was able to accomplish
this difficult and complex task in half the time of what we anticipated and she
accomplished it in a professional, responsive manner. I have no reservations in
highly recommending her for future projects.

Kansas University Medical Center Central Plains Geriatric Education Center
Nannette worked with us from April to July 2011 as a Senior ASP.NET Web Application Developer on an Online Registration and Payment project for the Kansas University Medical Center Central Plains Geriatric Education Center web application.
Nannette is a highly skilled, hard working IT professional and strives to meet client timelines. Nannette is able to quickly grasp business concepts and builds applications in the fastest possible way.
She helped us convert an asp web database application to a more efficient and high standard asp.net database application--similar to switching from a Honda Civic to a BMW. The application and database were entirely redesigned and old database values imported into the new tables.
She is able to develop complicated online registration, ecommerce payment systems, content management systems, and an administration module with detailed search features to handle populating the database table values and administering users and courses.
She is also sharing her expertise with us by transferring the knowledge needed to maintain the application. I definitely recommend her for other institutions and companies.
Li Huang - Central Plains Geriatric Education Center Staff Lead Developer
Nannette joined our team for a complex, time-sensitive project that used numerous
new technologies. She mastered the new tools quickly and provided key contributions
throughout the project. She is exceptionally well-organized and thorough. She is
a great team player and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to use her

Nannette was professional and easy to work with. She turned a variety of programming
projects around for us in a short amount of time and made sure everything met all
specs required. I recommend Nannette and her programming expertise without hesitation.
Ellen Didier, President
Red Sage Communications, Inc.
Nannette was instrumental in giving us a leg up in our long-term project of converting
one of our sites from Classic ASP to ASP.NET. Not only did she very quickly come
up to speed on the nature of our extremely busy website and the programming methodologies
our traffic levels force upon us, she completed her portion of the project well
ahead of schedule, epitomizing the conscientious contractor's creed of "Working
myself out of a job". She accomplished in one month what we expected to take three
months to complete and not only got the programming work done to our satisfaction,
she helped us learn what was uncharted territory for us.
She'll always be at the top of our list of who to call whenever we need to bring
"heavy hitters" on-board for future projects.
Bob Zumbrunnen, Investors
Nannette has done an incredible programming job. Her input has led to a sophisticated,
user-friendly platform. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a first class

I want to express my appreciation for your phenomenal web development skills and
your continued support over the last year with the development of RealEstateExchange.com
After initially working with three different data base developers whose attempts
were all unsuccessful at designing, structuring and implementing a backend that
would drive our ASP site, it was you that picked up the pieces and was able to build
a final product that has set us apart from other real estate listing websites.
Your quality programming has been recognized by the industry leaders earning RealEstateExchange.com
4 website awards in the last few months, including a five star rating from Editors
Choice award for Real Estate Software.
Thanks to your creative input and ability to write amazing code our site continues
to be the only web based application where users can automatically structure multiple
property transactions by doing searches within a search to meet their specific Have/Want
criteria then automatically balance equities and submit email offers to all parties
in the transaction.
I am convinced that if you had not taken over our project a year ago we would not
have a website today. Very few developers in the world are able to create a fully
automatic, integrated database that is capable of supporting the numerous tasks
that our interface requires.
You are the best.

Nannette is extremely talented, incredibly fast, unbelievably responsive, and totally
responsible. I owe a good part of the success of my business to her excellent help.
David Simon, WeComply.com
Thanks for the terrific (and fast) work on the TDS (Technical Design Specification).
I feel like I got a lot for my money (check's in the mail, BTW), which is how everyone
should make their clients feel (and why I abandoned the ColdFusion developers I

For over a year Nannette Thacker has been the sole ASP developer for Expert Notes,
a knowledge management application service provider. During that time Nannette has:
Her skill goes beyond just coding. In our application she worked with the design
team to create page design, she designed the SQL Server schema and used her experience
to recommend features that significantly enhanced our product. In the few cases
where she needed to develop something she was not experienced in she found the necessary
component, discussed the implementation with other developers, and trained herself
on its implementation.
- crafted complex dynamic ASP pages
- written SQL Server database-driven ASP pages
- built advanced search features using IIS
- written extensive SQL strings that manipulated user data as well as handling system,
administrative and accounting functions
- provided data security with multiple permission and data access levels
- developed a single integrated view that spans multiple knowledge domains
- automated e-mail distribution driven from the user profile
- implemented file upload from the user's browser
- insured cross-platform compatibility for Netscape and IE 3.2 and above
Nannette has the drive and initiative to work with minimal direction and specification.
In many instances a short description was all it took for her to implement extensive
additional features. Throughout this development Nannette worked well in the virtual
environment of Expert Notes – we are spread across the United States and remain
in contact via telephone and e-mail.
Nannette's skill with ASP programming is impressive. She is not only extremely professional
and meticulous she is also fast. As one of Microsoft's first independent trainers
and consultants I have trained and worked with many programmers so it is without
reservation that I can say that she is one of the most proficient programmers I've
had the pleasure to work with.
Expert Notes, CEO
...throughout the project, Nannette proved to be the conscientious worker any manager
would love. She overcame shortfalls of the technical team & wore lot's of hats in
order to keep the project on-track. This included keeping me - the customer informed
of progress, doing documentation & code walkthroughs to ensure requirements were
met and testing a breeze. Nannette will be a great asset to your Team.
