Developer of various software tools for use by software developers. They offer free editions of some of their products including:
- Lightspeed ORM – Includes a visual designer.
- Web Workbench – Provides integration of Sass, Less, and CoffeeScript into Visual Studio.
- NHibernate Designer – Though based off its compatibility ending with VS 2013, I’m guessing this isn’t maintained.
- SimpleDB Management Tools – Similar to NHibernate Designer above, compatibility ends with VS 2012, so guessing not maintained.
They also offer a number of free trials for their other products, including UI controls for a number of different platforms – e.g. WPF and mobile.
