Software Development

Image

The creative minds behind computer software; developing applications to enrich, automate and create efficiencies for individuals and organisations and to power technological advancement (*we hope for the betterment of society).

Four decades ago mainframe computing driven by Assembler languages and 3GL’s such as Cobol, Fortran and Pascal introduced IT to mainstream business users. These made way for more agile computing models with object based languages such as C++ coming to the fore. Presently, much commercial software is based around Sun Java or Microsoft .net frameworks. Coding languages today include C#, Java/JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby/Rails, VB.net, ASP.net, SQL, R, C++, ISO/Swift, Scala and Groovy.
