Take the Sweat out of Your "Other" Projects!
Announcing the ISE Eiffel Custom Programming Division

  • Do you have a great idea for libraries or utilities that would drastically improve your development process, but don't have resources for such "horizontal" projects?
  • Do you have great code that could be turned into reusable components if only someone could spend a little time on it?
  • Do you keep coming across projects with similar requirements, but can't find the time to develop common solutions?
  • Could your staff benefit from world-class help and mentoring?
