Kevin Bell

Kevin Bell

Kevin Bell is a test engineer on the Microsoft Access team in Redmond Washington.  Prior to joining Microsoft in 2008, Kevin was a partner in a consulting practice in Colorado that specialized in building software solutions for small businesses and departments in large corporations.  Their primary development environment was Microsoft Access connected to a SQL Server backend.  Over a 15+ year consulting career he has created a variety of custom applications from a management system for a small drapery shop with a hand full of users to a compliance tracking system for a large insurance company with hundreds of users in multiple locations.

Like many Access Developers, Kevin’s career with Access started by accident.  While working in Melbourne Australia for an illumination engineering firm, he started modernizing the company’s testing reports using Microsoft Excel.  Excel offered a rich presentation layer, but it wasn’t very efficient at managing large amounts of data. Databases at the time lacked graphical capabilities and Microsoft’s newly released Visual Basic lacked database support.  Then Access 1.0 arrived, combining the best elements of all three, and Kevin was hooked.

Over the years Kevin has been a member, officer and frequent presenter at the Denver Area Access User Group and now regularly attends both the Seattle Access User Group and the Pacific Northwest Access Developers Group.  Kevin is thrilled to be speaking at the 2014 Portland Database Designers Conference.
