Companies across America hire us because they like personal service, low hourly rates and a quality result. That's been our strategy for two decades.

It's Personal

We chose the name "My Programmer" because it reflects the personal nature of our business. You are not a number with us. We spend the time to learn about your business, so we can build the best possible database solution. Some of our clients have been with us over 10 years, because it's personal - every time.

Real Savings

Everybody wants to save money, but they also want the job done right. Otherwise they aren't saving anything. At $40 per hour, our rates are among the lowest in the industry. But our highly unusual (some might say fanatical) emphasis on quality is what keeps our clients coming back to us year after year.

Quality Results

A poorly designed and built database application is expensive to maintain, vulnerable to hackers, and pretty hard on your users. And it doesn't have to be that way. Using our proven 4D Methodology, we ensure each project is designed and built professionally, using industry best practices. You are going to like the results.



We build custom database applications with an emphasis on modern design, ease of use, speed and rock-solid code. Check out our latest database projects.

Track My Field

Located in Chicago, Ace of Spray hired us to design and build a web-based database application to help them manage their expanding pressure washing business. This database solution, called Track My Field, makes it easy to manage Leads, Customers, Jobs, Estimates, Work Orders, and more.

Bella Ruby

Nat Wallen hired us to help him design and build a new product for the mortgage industry. Located in Charleston, South Carolina, BellaRuby allows lenders and realtors to create synergies between their respective businesses. This cloud solution includes a web portal, E-commerce and robust administrative aspects.


We were excited when Peerdash approached us to design and develop a unique cloud-based social collaboration and storage application. This solution makes it easy for organizations to share content, while maintaining tight security control.


Probiotics leader ProThera hired us to design and build a new E-commerce solution. This application includes a redesigned store, in addition to web portals for their users and clients. The final application integrates with SAP, and makes the process of managing and fulfilling orders much easier.



Over the years we've developed some pretty strong opinions regarding what matters most when building database solutions. Our manifesto is listed below.

Understand the Problem

A beautifully designed and built application is worthless if it solves the wrong problem. We aren't doing this for our health. Understanding the problem is the first step to actually solving the problem. That's why we spend the time to learn about your business and your needs before we start making suggestions.

Don't Forget The User

What good is software if your users hate it? The key to user satisfaction is ensuring that the user experience (called UX) is great. It's more than pretty graphics. How does the application work? Is it fun to use? Is it smart? What emotions does using it evoke? Those are the things that really make or break an application.

Performance Counts

I don't know about you, but I really dislike slow applications. Your users probably will too. Besides, if Google can serve up 90 million results in .4 seconds, there's really no excuse for a slow application today. The key is knowing how to architect the application properly, which is our speciality.

Do It Right the First Time

Call me old fashioned, but I like doing things right the first time. Honestly, it's just easier that way. Doing it right means the application we've designed and built solves the problem, is fast and easy to use, and can be modified and maintained for years to come without a lot of effort.



For two decades database development has been our only business. Authors of the 4D Methodology, and recently mentioned in Understanding Computers.

Hi, I'm Rob Carr. Thanks for stopping by. I started MyProgrammer two decades ago because I enjoy helping clients craft professional database applications. I work with a small number of clients at one time to ensure that we deliver results everyone can be proud of. Over the years we've worked with a lot of companies you've probably heard of, including Universal Studios, Quiksilver, CBS Radio, etc. We've also worked with a ton of small businesses, including Peerdash, MosquitoSquad, DrinkPass, Agent Converter, and over 100 others. We've recently been mentioned in Understanding Computers, a leading college textbook, and we are the authors of the 4D Methodology. I also co-developed a popular database library called dvLib. Maybe you've heard of it?

Q: How long does the typical project take?

A: As you might imagine, project length varies widely. But most projects we work on take 3 to 5 months to complete. We also do a lot of ongoing projects, which can last from 6 months to several years.
