Donny Mack

Programming Data-Driven Web Applications with ASP.NETAuthor Bio

Donny Mack, native of Washington State, is one of the co-founders of DotNetJunkies.com, the training company solely dedicated to ASP.NET and ADO.NET. DotNetJunkies.com is also a free online centralized resource Website used by .NET developers to feed their .NET passion. Prior to founding DotNetJunkies.com with Doug Seven, Mack worked at Microsoft Corporation as a Visual InterDev/ASP Support Professional. MackÕs need for bleeding edge technology is such that he spends his waking hours, (and some of his non-waking hours), writing code and developing content for DotNetJunkies.com. MackÕs real enjoyment comes from watching attendants of DotNetJunkies.comÕs training courses walk away as obsessed as he is with .NET.

Doug Seven, born and raised in Seattle, WA, is one of the co-founders of the .NET training company, DotNetJunkies.com. Doug comes to DotNetJunkies.com by way of technical roles _at Nordstrom, Microsoft, and GiftCertificates.com; and as a Training Specialist at Seattle Coffee Company. As the son of a programmer, Doug was destined to become a developer. Growing up around computers, his career began at the tender age of 11 writing "Choose Your Own Adventure" games in BASIC on a TRS-80, (unfortunately none of his groundbreaking work from this period survived). His first professional IT job was as a lead for the long-term data storage and disaster recovery group in a dual-IBM Mainframe environment at Nordstrom. After a seven-year sojourn as a rock star (seriously!) Doug took on the role of Technical Lead in MicrosoftÕs Developer Support group. After leaving Microsoft, Doug worked as a developer in digital certificate enablement technology for GiftCertificates.com before leaving to pursue life running his own company. DotNetJunkies.com provides hands-on training in ASP.NET and ADO.NET data access.
