Success Stories

One of DataArt's latest projects involved development of a user-friendly, fast, and stable application for Windows 8. The implemented software is an application that runs on a desktop and tablet PCs.

The blend of XAML and C# which was used in the development process ensured a common approach to the software design for the different environments the application was designed to run on.

Data access was handled by a set of asynchronously executed WCF-services.

Additionally, the new features of the C# language (async/await functions) helped us avoid overcomplicating the asynchronous data processing and enabled us to implement a smooth, ergonomic, and responsive UI.

The app was developed using Visual Studio 12, .NET Framework 4.5 and WinRT. The innovative Modern UI concept provided a consistent UI style and appearance.

Quality Assurance was conducted with the help of Team Foundation Server 2012, including a source code repository, automated QA, bug tracking, project tracking, and management.
