Welcome to Dev Pro's article series about the business of software development and technology! The topic of this series, business development for software developers, covers some different ground than most of the other articles available at Dev Pro. Too many developers think in terms of bits, CPU cycles, and reads/writes to a disk drive. Rarely do developers and technologists think in terms of how an application feature impacts a company's bottom line, the importance of time to market, why marketing is important, the ramifications of contracts, and many other items. This series will help in explaining the importance of these elements of business development.
