Darrell Young

I grew up in the "Crossroads of the World", Gander, Newfoundland. I actually grew up not all that involved with computers! My idea of a great day was to spend it riding dirt bike or ATV. I definatly was no computer nerd! When my mother told me one time that she was going to go up to Gander Academy (in my early teens) because they were having a demonstration of electronic mail, I actually said to my mother, "Mom, that email is never going to catch on!". True story!

In my college years in the early '90s I started using computers; it was a necissary comodity. This was still in a time when not everyone had an email address, websites were very basic HTML only and not every business was online at all. Computers usually connected with a 33.6 modem through a phone line. I wasn't into designing websites from early on in life, because it really wasn't a big thing back then. I still loved dirt bikes and motorcycles. In college my chosen program was Electrical Engineering Technology. After I completed that three-year program I stuck aroiund and also completed the Industrial Instrumentation program at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. Part of these programs involved learning about PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers). At this point is where my mind started moving towards 'automation'; albiet, PLCs controlled physical equipment, but it does involve conditions, switches, outputs. As does web programming.

Still a big lover of all things motorcycle related, in 2004 I started a small home-based business Avalon Motorsports Inc. We're a Government Approved Motorcycle Training School; kind of a driving school for motorcycles. This is in an age where web pages are more common, and most people were using email. So I knew I wanted a lot from my website. I actually work full time for Memorial University, managing contracts for Operations and Maintenace work by external contractors, and their Energy and Metering Systems. I needed my website to "DO WORK" for me. I needed things automated. It's taken many years to learn, but I have learned the skills so that the website handles most tasks. People sign up and pay for lessons on the website, the website sends out automated reminder emails and texts, the certificates and testing is on the website, and we collect the student waivers online too.

I worked my 'day job' at MUN and teach people to ride Motorcycle, I work 'freelance' in web design. As you can probably tell, I like to be busy. I'd love to chat about how I can make the web work for you!
