Independent Technology Services
Gary Hughes is the developer behind Independent Technology Services. He and his wife Tempie live in McKinney, Texas. They have been married for 21 years, and they both spend their days working with technology.
Gary grew up in a small town in East Texas, and his love for technology began in his youth. With a bit of guidance from his uncle who taught a high school computer math class, he began teaching himself to program computers when he was twelve years old. He first learned to write BASIC programs on a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A that he received as a Christmas gift from his grandparents. He soon progressed to writing programs on his father’s Commodore 64 – first using BASIC, and later using 6510 assembly language.
After studying Electronics Engineering Technology at DeVry University, Gary went on to pursue a career in software development that has spanned more than twenty years. He has worked in a variety of industries, including telecommunications, oil & gas, forest products, and logistics as well as a few more in limited capacities. He has worked as a contractor for much of his career, either through a third-party agency or independently.
