C# & VB.NET Development Services

We’ve been writing software in C# and VB.NET since STEP Networks’ inception in 2005. STEP Networks developers began coding in .NET languages as early as 2002, with the release of Visual Studio.NET. We are experts in C# and VB.NET, and use them in many of our own products, such as STEP Insure (online insurance quoting and binding), Geospatial and other services. We use .NET with embedded kiosks, and deploy .NET Core applications on Windows and Linux.

NATIVE CODE WITH C++/CLI

We often integrate native libraries into .NET applications. A few technologies that we've brought into C#, VB.NET, and ASP.NET applications include GDAL, R, TensorFlow, and Caffe. We create C++/CLI wrappers to call the native code libraries, and create custom native code libraries to take advantage of lower level, light memory abilities, such as walking large amounts of data in a memory mapped fashion.

HISTORY

Microsoft's Chief Architect, Anders Hejlsberg designed C# with the experience he brought from Borland, where he was the Chief Architect of Delphi. He got it right both times, and with C# brought forward many lessons learned from his Borland days.

LIBRARIES

In addition to the large number of libraries available for .NET, we have a large STEP Networks library that we use to move development along quickly. A few of the STEP libraries are:
  • Forms Engine
  • Machine Learning
  • GIS
  • Media Tool
  • Barcode and RFID
  • Email Engine
  • Telephone Integration

OUR SERVICES

STEP Networks provides a comprehensive range of application development services. We use our years of experience to provide complete software solutions that meet your specific business needs.

We maximize your development investment by providing lengthier shelf-life applications that are flexible, faster and scalable, requiring minimal maintenance and support.

Web Development Services

Improve on-line business processes, enhance productivity, and maximize resource utilization. We usually create websites in ASP.NET using C#/VB.NET, or JAVA, but we also use PHP when it is the best fit for our client. These solutions can run on Windows servers, Linux (using mono for .NET), or embedded environments using custom web servers. We also have experience building ISAPI filters and extensions in C/C++, as well as CGI applications. If you require something unusual we can help.

Desktop Application Development Services

Faster, reliable and scalable applications that require minimal maintenance and support. We often build desktop applications using C/C++, .NET languages (C#, VB.NET), and Delphi/Lazarus (Object Pascal). When using C++ we usually use Qt or wxWidgets for our GUI toolkit. We also embed Webkit into our C/C++ applications when it is the right fit. 

Mobile Application Development

Streamline communications and keep up with the pace of mobile application innovation. We create iOS software for iPhone and iPad devices using Swift or Objective-C. We also port cross platform software written in C/C++, often using OpenGL for rendering. In addition to Apple mobile devices we create Android and Windows Mobile applications. We have some customers with legacy applications using embedded VB and embedded VC++.

Embedded Application Development

Unique application solutions for specialized hardware. We've written and support hardware compiled for small microcontrollers, such as the ATmega128. On these small devices it's paramount to write code that is lean in both compiled space and memory use. We also create software for embedded devices that rely on Linux or Windows, using C/C++, C#, Object Pascal and Python.

Geographic Information SysteMS

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) combined with your application can be used to anticipate user needs and be combined with machine learning applications to determine risk and opportunities. Our core GIS services are written in C and C++, with hooks to be called from .NET (C#, VB.NET), Java, Python, and PHP.

Machine Learning

Machine Learning services are taking the world to a new paradigm, where Artificial Intelligence can provide user recommendations, measure risk, plot a delivery course, find faults through image recognition, and more. The list of what machine learning can do grows every day. We implement our machine learning solutions using Python and C++, using technologies such as TensorFlow, Theano, Caffe, and OpenCV.

Security Solution Development

Lock down your enterprise application with secure, authorized, authenticated and global security solutions. We have a good amount of experience implementing OpenSSL into applications. When building an application that needs to be secure, it's necessary to know how to put the OpenSSL pieces together, and that's where we make the difference.

All of our services are complemented by after-sales support and maintenance.
