Welcome to the Brookes-Net website.

Hello and welcome to

Brookes-net is a new IT Consultancy and Web Development company, set up to serve the people and businesses of North Yorkshire.

Being aimed at small to medium sized enterprises and families, we try to provide a fully rounded approach to computers and the internet, providing everything you need to introduce new technology into your life. If you are setting up your first web site, looking at what the Cloud can offer, or just want advice on how to prevent viruses, we are here to help.

My name is John Brookes, and I am the brains behind Brookes-net. I have over thirty years experience working in computers, having started as a hardware engineer in 1979. Since then I have worked for a wide range of organisations, from local government to three-man businesses, in a variety of roles including Security Officer, Infrastructure Support and Web Developer, and most recently moving into the AWS cloud. Please see our Consultancy and Development pages for more details.

My son Stuart is also a web developer, and he specialises in front end development, mainly in JavaScript and jQuery. He has his own pages on this site and his own portfolio, so please have a look there as well.

My wife, Morag, is a pain research sister at James Cook hospital in Middlesborough, and in her spare time she's a PartyLite consultant. If you like candles, please see her pages.

My daughter Laura is at Derby University studying Criminology, and she is the creative member of the family.

Between us, we make up Brookes-net - and we look forward to being of service to you.
