I have been an independent contractor for 20 years and before that I worked for a software house for 5 years in the late 80's. I started out as a Lotus 1-2-3 developer and then did database development with Paradox. That soon became Access development which progressed to Access with SQL Server in a client server environment. Now I tend to work as a SQL Server developer specialising in optimisation.
