Our Technology


Metanous builds on the .NET technology



Metanous has an extensive knowledge and experience on the .NET platform ranging from desktop applications over server applications and web services, cloud solutions to mobile applications on all major platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Windows 10).


We have over 10 years of experience on the WPF platform. Over these years we have developed a methodology that helps us create performant, bug-free and user friendly applications. We use state-of-the-art patterns and methods when creating our software applications. Not only do we use these patterns, we also built upon them to provide our customers with an even better architecture. One such an example is MVVM-C.


Although we are not a web-design company, we do create quite some websites for our customers. These web sites, which we call web applications, allow our customers to monitor, configure and maintain the software platforms we create for them. We use modern technologies for accomplishing this goal such as ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET WebAPI, Boostrap, jQuery, AngularJS, etc.


We started to look into mobile development on the .NET technology stack when Novel was still developing Monotouch. Because we had good experiences with this technology stack and we share the same vision on mobile development as Xamarin, we made the transition to the Xamarin platform when Novel decided to stop their support for Monotouch.

We are developing on the Xamarin platform ever since and are very happy with that choice. Not only could we build on our .NET experience it also allowed us to use the patterns and methodologies we had been applying to WPF-applications for many years. This brings consistency throughout our solutions, which leads to robust and performant mobile applications and to better software in general.


As we have built an extensive track record on the .NET platform using Azure as the cloud platform of our choice seemed like a logical step. However, we didn’t just dive in. As with all technology choices we make we spend time on evaluating and comparing our technology stack. Since three years we are using Azure extensively for running our backend services.

Mobile Iron

While creating B2B mobile applications (mainly for the iOS platform) we have acquired extensive experience on how to set up and integrate with a Mobile Iron platform. This integration allows us to integrate the apps we create in the corporate network and build upon the security framework Mobile Iron provides.


Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework for building service-oriented applications. Using WCF, we can send data as asynchronous messages from one service endpoint to another.
