What We do.


E.T. develops applications for Windows95, Windows98, Windows2000, and WindowsNT environments. We develop almost exclusively in Visual Basic. We use VB because our clients require strong and effective Windows programs at an affordable price. VB allows us to develop these programs in an order of magnitude less time (hence less cost) than with other development languages such as C or C++. The availability of literally hundreds of third party controls (OCXs) allows us to save even more of the client's time and money, while delivering front end bullet proof programs. Examples can be seen in Some Past Software Designs
We also develop ActiveX controls (OCXs) using MicroSoft's newest development tool VB5 Control Creation Edition. This allows our clients to own self contained, reusable objects that fit his particular needs and give him an edge over his competitors. These controls are then usable in future or different versions of the client's software without these portions being paid for again. Examples can be seen in ActiveX Controls


E.T. can deliver total turnkey embedded designs. These services include original circuit design, prototype construction, printed circuit board layout, and production documentation to set up manufacturing. Examples can be seen in Some Past Hardware Designs
