At Creou we are passionate about software development. We are a consultancy specialising in everything .Net. Founded in 2011 we provide expertise and developer support for C# .Net projects. We rapidly apply our previous experience to an unfamiliar code base. We find new language features fascinating (especially C# 6’s new null conditional operator)
