Hi, my name is David Beevers and I am most passionate about helping small businesses with their Information Technology.

With a degree in Applied Science (Computing) I have provided IT consulting services to large and small businesses for many years. I service clients in the Blue Mountains and Sydney regions.

In addition to small business IT support I am passionate about children's play and have been involved with playspace design through Ric Mcconaghy's exceptional playspaces for many years.....See below for more details about my career and for some examples of technology as it applies to playspace design. 

 

Corporate IT Consulting 

I have worked for many large organisations in Australia, NZ, the UK and Europe. These have included Unilever (Lever & Kitchen, Streets, EOI Foods), CSR, BHP, ASDA Stores (UK), IBM (UK), Lotus Consulting, Seagrams (UK, Europe).

Roles performed at these organisations included programming, analysis and design of systems, integrating systems, business analysis and process design, and enterprise architecture activities (such as systems review and design, functional and none functional requirements analysis, software selection, change management, release management). 

While performing these roles I have always been a proactive leader and subject matter expert and am always willing to share my knowledge to the betterment of the business. I am a team player with great interpersonal and communications skills that I utilise to foster a productive project environment. 

 

Information Technology Support

Over the years I have provided IT services and support to many businesses of all sizes from individuals to multi-national companies. I have a broad range of skills across many industry sectors and using many technologies.

If you are just starting out in business or if you are looking to refresh your IT systems and need expert and professional  IT support then I can help you. With a focus on simple, understandable communications I aspire to help you implement IT solutions that are fit for purpose, robust and cost effective. My IT engagements are structured to suit your needs and budget and always with a focus on maintaining an ongoing relationship.

 

My IT support services utilise various technologies including (but not limited to):

  • Various desktop and mobile computing systems including Android, Apple, Linux & Microsoft

  • Various server systems including Windows server, Linux server, Virtual server and other network storage

  • All networking products

  • Firewall and other security products

  • Backup and recovery systems

  • Cloud based services and integration with local services (eg Google G-suit, Microsoft Office 365, Amazon)

 

Graphics for play space design

Ric Mcconaghy designs amazing naturalistic play spaces for kids with all abilities. Check out his web site at https://www.rmpl.com.au/  As part of this process we take Ric's hand drawn concept plans and create documents suitable for the community to use to understand the design of the play space. By keeping to these "traditional" methods Ric makes sure the magic flows throughout the whole design process from community consultation to completion of the building of the play space.

 

If you like Ric's website that's great because I also designed and maintained his site for many years. 

You may notice in the picture an Auslan panel with "Bb blow up".  Adding accessibility elements to playspaces is an important part of Ric's design process. Together we put together the design and framework for these Auslan Panels. These panels, generally letters and associated words from A to Z,  were then manufactured along with the correct Braille characters and placed throughout the playspace in a similar fashion to the one shown here.

QR code panels and associated stories are another interactive "technology" element added to Ric's playspace designs. The children scan the code and a web page (some with animation) is displayed with a story. An example of these codes and their associated landing pages can be see here. Dragonflies  - Dragonflies Landing Page

In addition to QR codes and Auslan we also developed an animation project for Western Sydney Parklands that explores the senses. The associated landing page may be seen here. Senses (try tapping on the persons forehead, you will see a page on "balance" and a small animation)

All this work mostly utilises my skills with the Adobe suit of publishing products.
