David Lubbat’s unyielding passion for web development and computer software has played an influential role in just about every major decision the longtime resident of Houston, Texas, has ever made. For those who know David well, it was for this reason that his decision to found a company focused on web development and computer software hardly inspired much surprise, if any at all. Lubbat Development is thus the product of David’s lifelong interest in web development and computer software, and clients of the company quickly discover the unmatched level of passion that animates David each and every day.
While David’s enthusiasm for web development and computer software stretches back for as long as he can remember, he was unsure of the influence it would ultimately have over his professional career. In fact, it was only during his first few years of college that he began to consider entrepreneurship as the best avenue for leveraging his exceptional talents as a web developer and computer software expert. It was during this time that David made the decision to dedicate himself to the rigorous study of entrepreneurship.
David’s confidence in his vision proved to be well placed. In the years since founding the company, David has overseen an impressive period of growth and has built a client base comprised of businesses of all sizes and representing a wide variety of industries.
1. What was your best/favorite subject in school?
I deeply enjoyed any subject that had even the slightest bit of relevance to web development and computer software, but I did well in school regardless of the subject.

Other than part-time work and various summer jobs, my first job was running Lubbat Development, the web development company I founded.

I believe my longstanding interest in software development and computer software, along with my academic coursework, played a far more significant role in preparing me to build such a successful business from scratch.
5. Describe the best day of work you’ve ever had.
In my line of work, every day always seems to be better than the last.
