Progent's application developers have worked with ever-evolving .NET technologies and the integrated Visual Studio development environment for two decades and can help you benefit from the vast .NET ecosystem by building applications quickly and at low cost. Applications created by Progent are easy to maintain and upgrade and can be built as stand-alone solutions or as enhancements to your existing applications. Because newer .NET tools have retained backwards compatibility with outdated versions of .NET, Progent's long experience makes it possible to maintain, enhance, or modernize your legacy .NET solutions. Progent's development skills combined with the wide selection of tested code and the ease of deploying .NET applications allow businesses of any size to afford custom software that can streamline operations, improve the customer experience, or otherwise deliver competitive advantage.

Progent's Areas of Expertise for .NET Application Development
The .NET ecosystem includes a broad range of tools and libraries for planning, building, testing, deploying, and upgrading cross-platform applications. Progent can provide expertise for developing major types of .NET applications.
Microservices and Containers
Progent can help you cut management costs by developing applications for Windows and Linux based on modular microservices that are easy to deploy and scale. With a modern microservices environment, you create applications from a set of services that can be built, validated, and deployed independently. You can manage these applications using .NET Core and Docker containers in the cloud or on-premises. Containers have a significantly smaller footprint than virtual machine images and offer excellent isolation, portability, agility, scalability.
Progent can help you eliminate OS administration hassle by using Azure App Service for building and running ASP.NET websites and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services. Azure App Service saves time and money by offering features like auto scaling, patching, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), performance monitoring, and debugging snapshots. Progent can also help you build and deploy a cloud-native ASP.NET Core microservice to Azure Kubernetes Service using Docker.
Mobile and Desktop
Progent can utilize the .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI, formerly Xamarin) framework for creating natively compiled applications for macOS and Windows desktops and for Android and iOS mobile devices. With .NET MAUI developers can use C# and XAML in a single codebase.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Progent can leverage .NET's extensive set of open-source Internet of Things (IoT) libraries by writing C# applications that run on devices powered by Raspberry Pi, HummingBoard, BeagleBoard, Pine A64, and other IoT platforms. This offers rapid development of apps for integration and control of specialized hardware like temperature and humidity sensors, accelerometers, gas sensors, RFID modules, analog-to-digital converters, gyroscopes, LCD displays, and input devices that use GPIO, SPI, I2C, PWM, and serial port interfaces. Device bindings available with .NET support HATs (hardware attached on top) such as GrovePi, Adafruit Seesaw, and Raspberry Pi Sense HAT.
.NET IoT Libraries permit rapid development of Internet of Things apps
.NET Upgrade Support
.NET tools are evolving rapidly in key areas including cloud integration and IoT development. Progent can help your in-house development team stay current by deploying tools like .NET Upgrade Assistant for upgrading your legacy .NET Framework-based Windows applications incrementally to a modern release of .NET. Modernizing your .NET environment offers an array of benefits including new features and capabilities, cross-platform support, improved performance, tighter security, and more deployment options.
