BLUEwebs began as a "non-compensated, collateral duty". Dan Blue, owner of BLUEwebs, was asked by the company he was working for to build their website - because he was the most computer savvy person at the company. In other words, he knew how to turn a computer on.
What started as a website design project became an avocation developing into BLUEwebs. Originally self taught to complete that first assignment, he sharpened his skills with course work in the HTML, XHTML, CSS programming disciplines, "best practices", web standards and more.
He also quickly realized that integrating skills developed in his "first career" - project management, event planning and graphics design - powerfully enhanced his online work. Hence the birth of a "solutions" driven company rather than a mere website design company.
