.NET Development Team

Kanda has more than 200 .NET, SharePoint and other Microsoft-centric developers, senior developers and software architects. 70% of our people have at least a Masters degree in computer science. Many hold higher degrees, including Ph D’s. More than 60% have one or more Microsoft certifications including:

  • MCP, MCAD .Net, MCSD .Net
  • MCTS SQL Server
  • MCTS.Net Framework 2.0: Web Applications

Our people have an extremely low turnover rate – 3-5% per year – and pride themselves on being highly involved in their projects: there’s no “throw it over the wall” mentality tolerated at Kanda. And of course they’re supported by a hundred-person strong QA department.

.NET application development practices are continually being improved, as is the entire large, complicated Microsoft development infrastructure. And Kanda .NET developers keep up, changing right along with it, continuing their Microsoft training and education inside the company as well as at leading universities.

Kanda .NET developers:
  • Go through intensive technical interviews and a three-month trial period before being officially hired.
  • Receive formal Agile methodology training and continual improvement exercises.
  • Have diverse backgrounds, but have one thing in common, they are great thinkers and problem solvers.
  • Integrate with client teams as much as or as little as is appropriate – the client always retains all IP.

Recent .NET Development Projects

Kanda works on everything from full-scale .NET product development to integration of small modules and components – whatever our clients need.

Translation services interface

Translation services interface

Translation outsourcing
Kanda worked with a leader in translation outsourcing services to develop their online/offline translation workflow tools and environments.

Client Spotlight:
Lionbridge’s GeoFluent cloud-based, real time translation platform translates content and communications into multiple languages. GeoFluent is a strategic initiative at Lionbridge that required extremely rapid progress. Integration with the machine-translation engine required in-depth understanding of complex language modeling and statistics-based translation training. Kanda had a team up and running within days and provided demos that were shown to prospects within two months. Cisco, Intel, and Symantec were the first three GeoFluent beta clients.
