For several years, since February 2014 in fact,  I have added posts in the publishing category of this blog for the release of each of my developer labs. I am happy to announce my Software Integration Author site [ http://davidwgrigsby.com ] V1.01 was launched last Friday November 18, 2016. This is the first release of a Production Product for Grigsby Consulting LLC and me in over 30 years, as I have been a “Fixer” for others during that time. Like with any software release I am looking for interested parties to validate and provide feedback on speed, content, visuals, sign up, download of the free developer lab books on Amazon Kindle. You can Sign Up at [ http://davidwgrigsby.com/FreeBookSignUp ]
