About Us

Bruce Gordon, President & Founder

Bruce is a seasoned professional with over 30 years of industry experience, having started his programming career in 1985. For most of his career, he worked as a programmer in the corporate world. He also worked part-time as a computer programming instructor throughout the 1990s. In 2002, he began to take on free-lance programming projects on a part-time basis and with a growing clientele, he officially formed The VB Programmer in 2006. When the "Great Recession" of 2008/2009 hit, he went full-time with The VB Programmer and has nurtured a growing client base over the past decade-plus. In 2016, he established Logical Decision Data Solutions as a natural evolution of The VB Programmer, with the "Logical Decision" name reflecting the current expansion of the company and ability to develop solutions for clients using a broad range of toolsets.

Bruce's technical strengths include Visual Basic application development (classic and .NET versions), database programming (MS-Access, SQL Server, Oracle, and others), MS-Office integration with Word and Excel, website design and development (ASP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS), and legacy systems (having spent the better part of his first decade in the industry as a crack COBOL programmer).

Bruce holds a degree in psychology from The College of New Jersey and has taken relevant programming training courses throughout the years. He maintains his fitness and sanity by walking four miles daily. In his spare time he enjoys listening to classic rock music and rocking out on his guitar.
