With three decades of real-world experience as an Indy developer, I've had the opportunity to take on a variety of roles to create and deliver many successful, websites, software and mobile applications for commercial brands, non-profit and corporate clients.
The most important key to my success as an indy developer has been my passionate and evolutional acquisition of new core skills as technology, languages and even core business models have changed over the past three decades.
In time where everyone is a specialist, Indy developers like myself strive to be different with expertise and a core competency skill set that is extremely broad.
