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 Microsoft's 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.

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. Mack's 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. Mack's real enjoyment comes from watching attendants of DotNetJunkies.com's training courses walk away as obsessed as he is with .NET.
