Working with Technology

Blueberry primarily works with Microsoft technologies, including Visual Studio and SQL Server – quite simply because we find the modern Microsoft tools to be very productive – and this saves our customers money.

However, we are not exclusively Microsoft, and neither do we believe that Microsoft solutions are always the best. We have considerable expertise with Linux, which we use to run many in-house systems. We also have a number of strong Mac advocates within the company.

About 50% of our work involves the creation of custom business systems, using Microsoft .NET and SQL Server, and we also retain strong skills with C++ , which we can use to overcome any performance or technical issues we may find with .NET. For most business applications, we recommend and use MS SQL Server as the information store.

For bespoke Web or online Applications, we have strong expertise with Microsoft IIS and ASP.NET – the leading Microsoft platform for website delivery. We also have strong expertise in JavaScript, HTML5 and AJAX – technologies necessary to deliver the interactivity required by website users.

If you want to deploy your business system in mobile contexts, we also have the development skills to build and deploy custom applications targeted at any of the mobile platforms and hardware manufacturers in use today.
