Welcome to devDept

About Us

Who We Are

devDept is a software manufacturing company. The development team is composed of passionate programmers with backgrounds in: software development, mathematics and engineering. It was founded in 2006 in Bologna, Italy. Proudly located in Motor Valley, devDept neighbors some of the motor industry's most celebrated legends such as Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Dallara, Pagani and Ducati. Bologna was also home to Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of radio transmission, and not too far from Ivrea, the birthplace of the personal computer. devDept has a flat company structure, all programmers are involved in developing new features, testing, providing technical support and writing code samples.

What We Do

devDept is focused on development of CAD software components for the engineering industry, in particular for .NET. devDept was the first company on the market to write a CAD software component conforming to the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) from scratch. After so many years, devDept is still fully committed to platform agnostic, bitness agnostic, 100% managed .NET code standards. devDept's small and effective company structure doesn't allow custom software development.

How We Do It

The devDept products roadmap is defined by customer needs. New product features are added for topics required by a significant amount of customers. Every new project is first discussed among programmers in terms of feasibility, limitations, testing and then implemented individually or collectively. Frequently, a long research/study on scientific literature is needed before starting. devDept software development practice is based on Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. devDept strives always to work with the latest development, build, test, setup authoring and deployment tools. A detailed list of these tools can be found here.
