File to Database Converter
File to Database Converter. Transfers data from the variety of configuration and data files used in the development of Melissa Data's international product (now in Beta) to an encrypted SQLite database that is delivered to customers.
Every now and then when I study some topic in software engineering I learn a new concept like concurrency or recursion that causes me to break into oohs and ahhs. That's because I recognize how immediately such a new topic can raise the trajectory of my thinking and my work. Lately that joy is due to the discovery and use of Test Driven Development. I love how its simplicity and power can provide me with so much more confidence in the quality of my work. I subscribe to Test Driven Development's Red-Green-Refactor process because I've seen that it leads to the development of bulletproof methods and better design.
