MICROSOFT .NET

As a Microsoft Partner, .NET is a go-to technology for The Bridge when developing both small and enterprise level systems. Our own spreadsheet import product Seymour is developed in .NET.

The .NET Framework simply makes programming easier for developing software. Our developers can create any type of application quickly with the most common being desktop, web, mobile or gaming. The .NET framework also provides support for Microservices, Cloud, Internet of Things, and Machine Learning. The large number of hierarchical libraries simplifies coding common functions as well as reducing work on memory management, garbage collection, security, interoperability and performance.

The key to rapid application development is to utilise the built-in framework of libraries, which allow us allow us to cater for common programming situations without having to write new code. This leaves The Bridge free to focus on the functionality required for the particular client project.

The .NET framework is constantly evolving, widely used and free, and components written by different developers in varying programming languages can all work together without any translation or recompilation.
