PostSharp Technologies

Advancing the state of the art of building software.

Our Mission

We at PostSharp Technologies are 100% dedicated to develop, maintain and support PostSharp. Our mission is to help software developers stop writing boring repetitive code (we're looking at you, logging, caching, exception handling … !) and rather use their time and skills to produce clean, reliable software that is easier to maintain.

We're closing gaps in object-oriented programming so that developers can outsource the tedious tasks to the compiler and focus on what really matters.

Our Story

PostSharp was created by Gael Fraiteur in 2004 and he still owns an absolute majority of shares in the company.
As a privately-owned and organically-grown company, free from the unpredictable moods of external investors, we are here to stay.

2004

Gael gets bored at work and at home, so he creates PostSharp as an open-source side project. His vision is to create a platform for post-processing of .NET assemblies during compilation.

2006

First consulting revenues from PostSharp. Gael tours Europe as a successful open-source project leader. Sweet days of fame and still limited responsibilities.

2008

Gael now works 3 days per week on PostSharp, which is still free and open-source.

PostSharp 1.0 RTM is released after 4 years of work.

2009

Gael contacts Roman Stanek, the serial company founder famous for NetBeans, and creates the company PostSharp Technologies.

2010

PostSharp 2.0, the first commercial version, is released.

The company gets immediately profitable and hires its first marketing dude.

2013

After lots of trials and errors, we're having success in hiring a developer: Alex. Still part of the team today, he's known as the async guy.

PostSharp 3.0 is released and introduces pattern libraries.

2014

With a team of 7 and smooth processes, Gael can finally take vacation without his notebook.

PostSharp 4.0 brings threading models, a true innovation to OOP.

2016

Peak of the turmoil in the .NET ecosystem. Windows Phone and Windows 8 are sent to the ash heap of computing history and the popularity of C# goes down.

2017

The .NET ecosystem seems to stabilize around .NET Core and sees the light again.

PostSharp 5.0 finally catches up again with the C# and .NET teams.

2018

PostSharp becomes the #1 highest-rated Visual Studio Extension.

Gael still hopes to get bored again, some day.

Gael Fraiteur, Founder and Principal Engineer

Gael has been passionately programming since childhood, building its first commercial application at age 13. His vision – to build aspect-oriented software that would offer .NET developers the same productivity benefits as those enjoyed by the Java community – became a reality when, in 2004, he built and released PostSharp to the wild. PostSharp has steadily grown to become the most comprehensive aspect-oriented software for .NET available today. Gael holds a master degree in mathematical engineering and two minor degrees in philosophy from the Université catholique de Louvain. Prior to founding PostSharp, Gael was a software engineer in Vodafone.

We Give Back

At PostSharp Technologies we are grateful to our customers for their trust and for the opportunity to have the job that suits our passion. We appreciate this isn't something that is due to us because of our work, but rather a gift we must struggle to deserve.

Per policy, PostSharp Technologies redistributes 20% of profit to its employees and 5% to charitable projects:

  • In 2015, we sponsored the Czech Institute for Autism.
  • In 2016, we initiated and financially supported the translation and publishing on the Czech market of Jeanne Siaud-Facchin's book Too intelligent to be happy, a study of the difficulties encountered by talented young people and adults – difficulties sometimes coined as the geek syndrome.
