Darteks have many years of experience in the IT industry.

With strong development skills centred on Visual Basic, XML, Adobe Central (Jetforms) and PHP/HTML/CSS, we have been involved in numerous projects originating from the charity, funds management, manufacturing, educational and government sectors.

These skills and others are summarised in this resumé.

Established in 1995, Darteks is based in Melbourne, Australia.

Our senior programmer holds a degree in Computer and Mathematical Sciences.

A brief outline of some of our major developments
• Business
• Community Groups
• Arts
• Aged Care
• Charity
• Funds Management
• Government
• Education

Darteks is currently providing development and remediation services to a major foods manufacturing company. Several software technologies are being used including VB.Net, ASP.Net, Sharepoint Portal Server 2001, Microsoft Content Management Server and SQL Server 2000/2005.

We have also been developing a job work flow application based on VB.Net for one of Victoria's leading home builders. This application uses SQL Server 2005 for the backend and Darteks designed the schema and wrote the stored procedures for managing the data. We also built a set of business objects that provided a layer for business logic and finally the user interface components.

Community Groups
Darteks has created websites for two of Melbourne's orchid societies. These can be seen at and

Darteks provided the means for a local artist to showcase her art work in a gallery based on PHP and MySQL technologies. The gallery can be seen at

Aged Care
Visual Basic programming services were provided by Darteks to finish the current implementation of a Windows application for managing Aged Care within Australia.

Darteks provided the analysis, design and subsequent implementation of the Jetforms-based outgoing communications letters generation system for one of Australia's major charities. This project required analysis of over 600 individual letters and statements and their breakdown into standardised components. Using a combination of Visual Basic and Adobe Central Pro (Jetform), documents were dynamically merged with system data. XML was used as the means for manipulating data from the parent CRM system. During the course of the project, Darteks handed over a full set of analysis and design specifications as well as recommendations for future enhancements. The final system outputs several thousand dynamically generated letters per week.

Funds Management
Darteks has been involved with a major funds management company on several projects.

We were closely involved in their Adviser web site project.

During this time we had been responsible for the following software development relating to this and other projects, such as the member's financial statement generation system:
- Designing and developing COM components for use in an n-tiered environment.
- Designed and developed the statement generation system in Adobe Output Designer, Central Pro and VB.
- Designed and developed the letter generation system using the same model.
- Mentoring company staff in the development of COM components and XML, XSL, ASP and JavaScript.

Darteks co-developed the FOCUS damage control system prototype for the ANZAC class frigate.
We also created the serial communications software used for communication between the incident monitoring hardware and the FOCUS application software which was written in Visual Basic.

Darteks was a member of the team responsible for the licence testing software development for VicRoads and the Road Traffic Authority - NSW.
