Our team is known as a developers of PVS-Studio. In addition, using our experience, we help companies tackle some of their specific tasks. Not many people know about this direction of our activity. To fill this information gap, I decided to write this post. So, please, take 5 minutes to read about additional services we provide.
Our main activity is the development and sales of the static code analyzer PVS-Studio. But, somehow by itself, there is a parallel activity related to the sale of our competences. This can be called outsourcing, but we don't like that word. It does not reflect that we carry out work in those areas where we are experts. That is, in one way or another, our work intersects with the topic of static code analysis or our large knowledge in C++ and C#.
In general, our team performed the analysis (audit) of third-party code using our or third-party tools. However, we are not limited only by the audit. For example, we did a large job migrating an application to 64-bit platform. More details can be found in the article "How to Port a 9 Million Code Line Project to 64 bits?"
Almost all of our work was done after signing NDA and, unfortunately, I can't talk about them. Speaking about open tasks, I can refer to Epic Games for which we carried out the improvement of Unreal Engine code. Here is an article about it: "How the PVS-Studio Team Improved Unreal Engine's Code".
Since there is a practice of doing third-party orders, we decided we should continue and expand this activity. Possible directions:
Cooperation is not limited to listed areas. Rather, they are given for example. We are ready to discuss other options and types of work. All in all, anything you can pay for.
I suggest continue the discussion the tasks that we could help with. Contact information.
If you are not sure, whether to write regarding any issues or not, then just write. Communication in any case is useful. It's hard to get where the cooperation can lead to.
Using third-party libraries allows you to get the functionality you want, without wasting time on the development of the corresponding logic. Take and use it! Of course, such an approach doesn't include only the merits, that's why it has another "dark" side. One of the problems inherent to using third-party libraries is the lack of control over things that are ...
