My name is Fokke Post. I'm a software developer at Interactive Voting System in the Netherlands. I've been developing software with Delphi since 1997.
The company specializes in (as the name suggests) an interactive voting system. This system allows an audience to vote on questions or propositions with the help of wireless keypads. Since 2008 we've also had a PowerPoint Add-in that brings the interactive voting directly into PowerPoint. To create this Add-in, I used Add-in Express.
