Modern Software Development
Software development is in our blood at Vertix and there’s nothing we enjoy more than architecting and building computer systems 💖. Through the use of modern, efficient software development practices and tools, we build systems that automate everything from simple, repetitive tasks, to complex interactions and the processing of data through multi-stage systems.
We work with clients at every stage of the software development process:
- Defining requirements
- Designing architecture
- Technology selection
We believe that technology projects work best when there is early feedback and frequent delivery of results. This helps to ensure a successful project and alignment with the goals of the client. We operate with a flexible approach to development, and fit our processes around our clients needs and the needs of the project; suffice to say, we always want to ensure that key stakeholders are engaged, and informed, at every step of the process.
At Vertix, the quality of the software we deliver is of paramount importance, and as such, we utilise a number of different approaches to software development, such as Domain Driven Design (DDD), Test Driven Development (TDD) and the SOLID principles of object-oriented programming. These principles and frameworks help us to ensure we achieve the highest standards in the software we produce, all while maintaining agility and efficient delivery.
We utilise Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery tools to ensure that robust testing, build, and deployment processes are in place.

🖥️ Existing Systems
While it is fun and exciting to work on new development projects, it is often the case that existing systems are in place and require work or maintenance. We’ve worked on many preexisting software projects that were around long before our involvement, and have many years experience reverse engineering logic, meaning, and intention from software. If you have an development project that you are looking to take forward, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how we can be of assistance.
Tools of the Trade
Our core development skill set lies in the creation of systems and services using .NET, C#, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Castle Windsor, and a range of other tools, technologies, and libraries associated with .NET development. A particular area of focus for us has always been the maximisation of software performance through the use of parallelism, asynchronous programming, and extensive profiling within .NET.
⚙️ Micro Services
We are strong advocates of a micro service based approach to systems architecture and make extensive use of messaging systems such as RabbitMQ, gRPC, ZeroMQ, and WCF to achieve this. These tools enable us to decouple systems and scale them to maximum effect.
👩💻 Programming Languages
Despite much time being spend working with Microsoft technologies, we are also accustomed to working with Node.js, Python, Ruby, Swift, PHP, and a number of other server-side languages, on Windows, Linux and Mac/iOS systems. Our focus in this regard is in developing the underlying skills required to be able to understand and become productive with new languages and technologies in the most expedient way possible.
