About Antony Penn, The Author

I have been into computers since the tender age of 11, and started writing business software for my father's and sister's businesses from the age of thirteen. By age sixteen, I was working in a software house writing commercial software for businesses and local governments, including some very well known brand names.

Over a span of more than 30 years I have covered every position in the software development industry: from Developer, DevOps / System Administrator, Analyst, Project Leader, Development Manager, CTO, and even as a client.

I have been (and continue to be) involved on various web/computer based start-up projects, and have a strong entrepreneurial spirit.

This wide spectrum of positions alongside a varied and extensive list of industries, has given me a unique and broad perspective on the entire life cycle of software projects.

I have now turned my hand to technical writing, to help others gain from the knowledge I have gained over the years, but I continue to provide technical consultancy services.

If you would like to get in touch about any of my books or consultancy services, you can use the contact page to reach me. You may also be interested in my LinkedIn profile or following my writing progress on my twitter account, @AntonyPennBooks.
