Introducing Doug Dickerson
PANGAEA Internet is happy to introduce our Network Engineering Summer Intern, Doug Dickerson.  Doug will soon graduate from Blue Ridge Community College with an associate degree in Computer Networking and Computer Programming. In the Networking program he studies Cisco products and design and Windows and Linux Administration. In Computer Programming he learns about Java, C++, C#, and databases. Doug has also taken classes in web site design and programming.

As an intern for PANGAEA, Doug works closely with Stu Davidson, Operations Director, to learn how to implement a high speed fiber network, make fiber connections, and configure the equipment used to make all that work.  He is also learning about the set up of the wireless service in the town of Tryon.  Doug says, “It has been a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to work with the people here at PANGAEA Internet.  Everyone there has helped me learn new things and given me the ability to compliment my course of study with actual hands on experience.”
