David first told us about his sales background and why he decided to learn the dev stack he was selling himself. He told us about Model Driven Development an how he learned development with a very holistic, systemic approach. We then talked about this tech and sales background prepared him to create his first company. After a few painful tales from the DotCom era, we pushed toward learning to code, creating a second, and then a third company. We finally fast forwarded a few years to land to talking about Tekyz Inc, David's current company and finished by touching on the no-code-movement.

David's software career spans over 30 years. From business development and technology consulting to creating his own companies "VSS" and more recently Tekyz, Inc, a software design & development firm. David is also the CTO and a managing board member of Anzu, originally a Tekyz customer.
