NetQuarry Version 4.0.2 Released

FULLERTON, Calif. – January 4, 2016 – NetQuarry, Inc. announces release of v4.0.2 of its NetQuarry Enterprise Application Platform.

This release is the first NetQuarry platform production release with full support for the Bootstrap framework across all major platform elements. It provides a follow-up to v4.0.1 which implemented initial support to allow new Bootstrap-based applications to get a head start on development.

  • Integration with the UploadCare file uploading service,
  • Built-in support for opt-outs in the SendGrid email integration,
  • Support for iOS and Android push notifications,
  • Integration with the Bitly service for short URLs,

  • Initial integration with the Slack service.

In addition to Bootstrap support, this release includes a number of qualitative enhancements:

  • Improved security against various threats as detected during penetration testing,

NetQuarry Summer 2015 Internship Program

For our fourth summer now, NetQuarry is proud to announce the return of its summer internship program. We have 4 summer interns this year working with us on software development related tasks, including constructing a new mobile app and maintaining and developing upon our database/web applications.

One intern from last year has joined us again; he is a rising senior at Boston University. Another intern is a rising junior at USC. The other two interns are current Troy High School students, participating in their school’s required Tech internship program.

Our interns work side-by-side with our staff, giving them the opportunity to learn from experienced workers and become part of a real, professional work environment. The lessons learned here expand upon what they’ve been taught in school, and give them an outlet to apply their knowledge in a constructive way; everything our interns do matter, and their effects can be seen in our products.

After the internship has run its course, the experience gained and the knowledge that comes with it will become an essential part of our interns’ respective futures in the technology sector and will have provided a solid foundation upon which they can build the rest of their career. Knowing how to operate in and navigate the real world is just as important as learning the fundamentals of computer science in school, and together, they will lead to a successful future.

NetQuarry Version 4.0.0 Released

FULLERTON, Calif. – December 4, 2014 – NetQuarry, Inc. announces release of v4.0.0 of its NetQuarry Enterprise Application Platform.

This release is the first NetQuarry platform production release built on .Net 4.0 and targeted for the .Net 4.0 framework. As such, the primary focus of the release is the framework conversion itself with as little disruption to existing customers and applications as possible. With the v4.0.0 release we are happy to be able to provide an extremely smooth migration path requiring only a recompile, a small number of standard .Net Web.config settings, and, for applications with integrated SQL-Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports, a minor reference change to affected reports.

The .Net migration is comprised of the following major changes:

  • Adoption of Visual Studio 2013
  • Migration of existing platform code to .Net 4.0.
  • Replacement of the original .Net installer with an InstallShield-based installer.
  • Development of a .Net 2.0 to .Net 4.0 COM interop bridge for SSRS support.
  • Updating of certain 3rd party components to .Net 4.0 compliant versions.

Although the .Net framework transition is the primary purpose, this release includes a number of other enhancements:

  • Improved mobile support and responsive design,
  • Support for exposing an application REST API,
  • Various mailer enhancements.

Also included in this release are a somewhat small number of minor features and bug fixes.

Ten Years

Hard to believe, but it’s been ten years since we started NetQuarry.  We founded NetQuarry ten years ago today – September 24, 2004.  By the middle of 2005 we were live with our first real customer, iLuxCars, which is still running today.  In fact, I think all of the apps that we’ve deployed over those ten years are still running.

Back in 2004 we started the NetQuarry platform on the latest version of .Net at the time, .Net 1.1, using VisualStudio 2003.  Today the NetQuarry platform is developed using VisualStudio 2013 and is built for .Net 4.0 and along the way we’ve adopted various industry-standard technologies such as jQuery and Bootstrap, and adopted responsive design.  Over the years the NetQuarry platform has grown to meet the needs of our customers and to keep up with the ever-changing demands of modern web-based applications.  And, despite huge changes, the architecture of the platform has allows us to maintain an incredibly high level of backward compatibility – I’d say virtually 100% (for example, we have a customer who just recently upgraded their platform for the first time in a bit under four years with little more than a recompile).

NetQuarry started as a boutique software engineering firm built around a cutting-edge, web-based platform with incredible dedication to our customers – and that’s what we remain today.  Although we’ve grown a bit since then, the fundamentals haven’t changed one iota.  NetQuarry remains 100% committed to our customers and to providing them with the very best technology available today.

So, thank you to our customers, employees, interns and friends who have helped us get where we are today.

Here’s to the next ten years!

This release is the final NetQuarry platform production release built on .Net 3.5 and targeted for the .Net 2.0 framework.  The next production release,v4.0.0, is being built on .Net 4.0 and targeted for the .Net 4.0 framework and is expected to be released in early September.  This release and the v4.0.0 release, focused on the framework conversion, are intended to serve as stepping stones to future versions of the platform built on the Net v4.0 framework.

Although the .Net framework transition is the primary purpose, this release has a secondary focus on improved support for mobile devices and responsive design.

NetQuarry Continues Internship Program in 2014

NetQuarry’s summer internship program is in full swing with its biggest year yet! A total of five interns are working together on a variety of basic software assignments on database applications and extensions, including creating surveys and organizing tables of newly imported information.

With one returnee from last year, the five interns represent a diverse variety of backgrounds: one incoming senior participating in Troy High School’s Tech internship program, one graduated senior from Troy attending USC this fall, a returning junior to Boston University, a returning sophomore to USC, and finally a returning junior to Notre Dame.

Alongside the staff here at NetQuarry, these interns will get a chance to be integrated into the NetQuarry team. Not only will they be contributing directly to the production and overall progress of the company, but they will also learn valuable hands-on lessons that few high school or college classes have the opportunity to teach.

Now that the modern age upon us with software technologies advancing by the year, it is very difficult for newcomers in the industry to find stable ground and understand the nature of the profession. We hope this internship will be an important stepping stone for the futures of these interns as they enter into a technology-filled world.

NetQuarry Kicks Off 2013 Internship Program

Drawing from the great experiences brought about from last summer, NetQuarry has restarted its summer internship program. Three students have been brought in from around the Fullerton area to help with entry-level software tasks (they’re not coffee-fetchers here!) such as finding bugs in the platform, helping serve client requests, and maintaining the website (like writing this blog post).

Two of the interns this summer are incoming seniors who are participating in Troy High School’s required Tech Internship program, while the other is a recent Corona del Mar High School graduate who will be attending MIT in the fall. They will all be under the leadership of a former NetQuarry intern who is currently conducting consulting work with the company and will be attending UCI this fall.

The interns will experience a hands-on introduction to working in the world of software development that provides skills valuable to future pursuits in the industry. They’ll work in a professional environment, develop projects in groups, and handle deadlines.

Computer science classes in high schools and colleges mostly focus on the theoretical aspects and fundamentals of computer science. However, with this standard, the applications themselves, especially in the business world may be glossed over. As interns, the students will be able to apply what they already know about computer science while learning the dynamics of a professional setting.
