Welcome to DevZen


Welcome to DevZen, a business by Nick. Based in West Berkshire, UK the business was formed in 2009 to fill a growing need for the development of websites, and other computer services, for small (and local) organisations and businesses. Websites have included customised HTML, JavaScript and PHP, WordPress and Drupal Content Management Systems (CMS) and more.
