About our software

You'll be delighted to find that the software we write is all about elegant and modern C++. We have a clear set of principles to handle this versatile language. We also use Golang and Python for certain web services and for our testing suite. We use the best tools for the job, and when those involve different languages and frameworks, we don't shy away from the challenge.


When it comes to libraries, we make use of a modest set of well-vetted names. Boost is essential to us, and we use e.g., Boost.asio for networking. Libsodium is our essential cryptographic toolkit. And even though we have an extensive self-built testing infrastructure, we see the strengths of the GTest testsuite for our unit tests, which run after every build.
