Ranked as 26 on a list of 50 companies, AppDev increased its revenues 139 percent over the past three years. AppDev offers training for Microsoft software developers, customized on-site classes, self-study courseware, video training and courseware licensing for Microsoft Developer tools, and public classes in more than 30 North American cities. “We devote resources to continually monitor and improve our course content,” says AppDev CEO Craig Jensen. “In doing so, we’ve successfully extended our product line to offer multiple training formats that meet the needs of our Microsoft developer customer base.” Jensen also attributes the company’s success to dedicated, self-starting, customer-driven employees.
