Siemens Audiology

Siemens Audiology saved 15% development time plus improved code readability by removing unwanted boilerplate code.

When the team at Siemens Audiology was tasked with building a new WPF implementation for two of its leading hearing system software applications, a big challenge was to find a way to save coding time for developers implementing ViewModels while increasing code readability.

"PostSharp is a pretty amazing piece of software."

Stay DRY with aspect oriented programming by injecting repetitive code directly into your application. Abstractions like AOP are the whole point of what the computer is supposed to do for us, work that’s not fun, like logging and transactions. So why not hide that?

Scott Hanselman
Principal Program Manager, Microsoft

"PostSharp should be part of every C# developer's toolset."

PostSharp is amazing! If you are not using it, you should! The amount of code that can be reduced in logging alone is worth the price! I believe that PostSharp should be part of EVERY C# developer's toolset.

Eric Ziko
System Programmer, Wells Fargo

"Working declaratively is a dream!"

PostSharp is the best way to implement cross-cutting functionalities in a very elegant and efficient way. And when you want to enforce some design rules in your code, working declaratively is a dream!

Pierre-Emmanuel Dautreppe
.NET Architect, Thales Information Systems

"PostSharp simplicity is simply amazing."

PostSharp rocks! And I mean that as someone who is doing AOP for a long while, and has implemented some not insignificant parts of Castle.DynamicProxy. Leaving aside the amount of power that it gives you, PostSharp simplicity is simply amazing, wow!

Oren Eini
Author, RhinoMocks

"PostSharp is very easy to use."

Releasing developers from writing boilerplate or infrastructure code helps my team to complete features faster. We definitely save coding time with PostSharp. We’re relieved from writing INotifyPropertyChanged and creating ICommand properties needed for data binding.

Bernd Hengelein
Software Architect, Siemens Audiology
ats-global-casestudy

ATS Global saves 16% lines of code.

When the team at ATS Global needed to build a complex shop floor simulation, they faced the challenge of potential multithreading issues and the complexity of writing synchronization code.

The team turned to PostSharp and was able to write thread-safe code without training all team members in advanced multithreading and delivered required features with 16% fewer lines of code.

thales-casestudy

Thales is more focused on business logic.

When the team at Thales Information Systems was tasked with a big refactoring on a project, one of the challenges was to simplify architecture by reducing boilerplate code.

The architect chose PostSharp to implement custom aspects to handle logging, performance counters and INotifyPropertyChanged and keep junior team members better focused on business logic.

gamesys-casestudy

Gamesys improves productivity with PostSharp.

Gamesys serves around one million daily active users across its social games. Their backend services handle more than 250 million requests per day. Despite its massive scale, this distinctive service is being maintained by a remarkably small development team of just seven super-productive individuals.

They chose PostSharp to automate the implementation of their design patterns, outsourcing mundane tasks to the compiler so they can focus on what matters..

cognitivex-casestudy

PostSharp took care of 95% of CognitiveX's INPC code.

When Cognitive X was looking for ways to deliver value to their clients while differentiating themselves from the competition, the team chose PostSharp as one of the core pieces of their strategy.

By decreasing the actual lines of code they were writing, as well as helping them enforce best practices, PostSharp allowed them to produce new features for their clients faster, at lower cost, and with fewer errors.

mobilex-casestudy

MobileX AG improves code maintainability.

When the lead developers at mobileX began a huge refactoring project, migrating the company’s codebase to the .NET 3.5 framework and then rewriting their flagship application from WinForms to WPF, the biggest challenge was to improve code maintainability by reducing code complexity.

They chose PostSharp for its out-of-the-box solutions that eliminate code repetition without changing application architecture.

queue-it-casestudy

Queue-it improves code quality.

Queue-it is an online queue system designed to manage website overload during extreme end-user peaks. Queue-it serves 600+ million users worldwide and has customers across all online industries, including ticketing, retail, education, and the public sector.

The Queue-it team chose PostSharp to automate implementation of patterns and dramatically improve the quality of their code base: it is now cleaner, easier to maintain, and contains fewer defects. Queue-it considers PostSharp an essential tool for software development.
