Meet Gary

I'm Gary Straughan, the author of Development That Pays.

With a background in both Industrial Marketing and Software Development, I have a unique perspective:

I see software development through "business eyes".

  • I'm not interested in software for its own sake.
  • I am interested in software that achieves real business goals.

I'm fascinated by what works and what doesn't in software development; that's what Development That Pays is all about.
