Donovan Den Designs
You have arrived at Donovan Den Designs. Pull up a chair and sit by the fire.
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Diane Cook Donovan and I am a website developer. I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Vermont. My career began with a position at the Department of Defense as a typical computer programmer coding in FORTRAN. Later, after my children started school and because of an interest in architecture, I began working for an architect where I found myself maintaining a network of PC's and then teaching myself web design. I have continued to develop web pages for non-profits, as wells as for my own profit.
Because of my comfort with all different aspects of computers I have been fortunate to build skills in many components of both software and hardware and it has meant that I am able to learn new things quickly. When I found some part-time work where I was privileged to scan some valuable historic photos, it got my foot in the door and I was next hired to build a database. This forced me to sharpen my MS Access skills and then gave me a chance to learn PHP and MySQL to put the database on the web. I have used those skills many times over for different branches of that organization.
More recently I have had the chance to try my hand at using my IT technical skills. I found it to be enjoyable and I am working at getting certified in that area. I have taken many courses over the years to keep myself current.
So, if you are in need of some web page development, or if you are interested in hiring for a full-time position as part of a team, please contact me.
Please feel free to take a tour of the website. Click on the links to the left and right to see examples of some web pages I have done and to look at my resumé.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
