Cheerleading for Underdogs

Greetings! I’m Gary Wilmot, the geek at the helm of Avallach Technology. With a keyboard at my fingertips since 1981 and three decades of software and web development under my belt, my journey from programming early computers to wanting to empower today’s digital underdogs has become something of a quest. If you’ll give me a few moments, I’ll share a flavour of my story and the mission that drives Avallach.

The Early Days

My love affair with technology began when most computers were still massive, clunky machines, and the personal computer revolution was just beginning. Programming wasn’t a just career skill like it can be today; it was a doorway to endless possibilities. Those early days have, ultimately, given me the privilege of constructing digital landscapes for various clients, from small startups to significant enterprises, and even worked for one of the UK’s top web hosting service providers.

The Frustration

Despite my geeky inclinations, something always gnawed at me. I watched as the digital world became a labyrinth where the little guy often lost their way. It pained me to see aspiring entrepreneurs and solopreneurs being misled into believing they needed to invest a fortune for a Hollywood-esque website, or worse, end up with bloated sites packed with unnecessary features.

The Revelation

My epiphany came from both professional insight and personal frustration. The truth hit me: Building a professional, functional website shouldn’t be a Herculean task reserved for the few. Nor should it drain your resources. The barriers erected by the tech industry were not just unnecessary; they were unfair.

The Mission

Thus, Avallach Technology was born out of a desire to arm the underdog with knowledge and tools. My goal? To debunk the myths that web development is costly and complicated. With the right guidance, anyone can self-launch a website that’s both professional and functional in a matter of hours or days—without breaking the bank.

The Commitment

As a solopreneur myself, I resonate with the challenges and aspirations of “the little guy.” Avallach isn’t just a business; it’s a pledge to ensure no one feels lost in the digital fog. I believe in cutting through the clutter, offering straightforward, honest advice, and supporting each step towards online independence.

My journey from a curious geek to a guide through the digital maze has taught me one crucial lesson: Empowerment comes from understanding. At Avallach Technology, we don’t want to just build websites; we want to build bridges for every solopreneur ready to cross them. Join me, and let’s simplify the web together!
