My name is Eric Barker and I am an IT manager and graduate of Carnegie Mellon University. I provide web design and computer consulting, tutoring, and repair to residents of Indiana County, Pittsburgh, and beyond.
Sometimes a beginner has difficulty learning computer skills in a non-personal classroom environment, because the instructor sets his or her own pace. Sometimes it's not convenient to disconnect your entire computer and haul it in to an expensive repair shop when there's a problem. Sometimes it's difficult to find someone to design a website to suit your personal needs at a reasonable price. That's where I step in to provide solutions, either remotely or at your home in a relaxed, personal environment.
Please contact me with any questions or to discover if I can help you.
Eric's work on our website is outstanding. As a photographer, I am fairly fussy about how the site looks. Eric has the technical competence to complete the practical parts of my design ideas as well as the communications skills to explain the limitations of HTML in normal English. He consistently suggests reasonable alternatives, and shows examples of them. Over the past few years he has learned my preferences, and adapted his designs and updates to them, while retaining the initiative to strongly recommend features he believes important. Eric also has the confidence to admit when he does not know something and then find the answer. The feedback on maizephotography.com has been excellent from customers, vendors and other photographers. The site has helped us communicate visually with customers very effectively. If I were doing it over, I would hire him again.
Over the past three years Eric has been very helpful in developing my computer skills which were non-existing at one point. Eric is a skillful and patient teacher. He doesn't seem to mind to go over a problem again and again until I finally get it. I highly recommend Eric as a private teacher.
