About Berube Consulting
Berube Consulting is a boutique software development firm founded in 2002 by David Berube. Over eighty percent of my work comes from existing clients, from fields including sales, training, retail, service firms, and nonprofits. Unlike many software development firms, I specialize in dealing directly with businesses; rather than developing from a spec, I work with you to determine project goals.
