Part one of a history on how AppDeploy came to be…
I supposed it came off okay, but this impromptu interview totally freaked me out. The camera was two inches from my face and I’d not been in a similar situation before.

I started with an eBook published by Real Time Publishers on the topic of Windows Desktop Administration. I then wrote a second digital book on the KiXtart scripting language with the intention of seeing it go to print. Agilty press was sold to Mann Publishing and did print one edition of the book which was well received. My last book was the first that was straight to print and for a major publisher, unfortunately the topic was Deploying and Administering Windows Vista which was devastatingly unpopular. Each was a great deal of work which took many months to see through. Today I much prefer simple articles and blog posts and have no aspirations to write additional books.
I think it was U2’s Achtung Baby! release in 1991 when I took notice of producer Flood. I started looking through my CD collection and saw his name listed enough of my favorite releases that I started digging to put a catalog of his work together.
