Software Credit & Contributerss

Iron Barcode Software Credits

Beyond our own C# development team there are many to thank for the success of this .Net package.

Our first tribute is to Nuget.Org for providing a package manager for C# / .Net developers which was sorely needed. We salute you. https://www.nuget.org/

We also wish to give great thanks to everyone involved in the .Net Core project. Crossing the platform barrier makes our lives as developers and sysadmins easier as we can finally code once and deploy anywhere. https://github.com/dotnet/core

Another warm hand to the Visual Studio IDE development team. We respect this not only as the Best IDE ever created (Since Borland Delphi 7) , but the huge generosity in offering free community licenses - making C# a new starboard in academic software engineering. The Mac and Linux aficionados on our team also appreciate Microsoft's generous funding of Xamarin and new-found investment in POSIX based server products. https://www.visualstudio.com/

To create this library we stood on the shoulders of Giants.
This project built many layers and thousands of hours of code for dependability and accuracy ontop of the unmodofied ZXING platform making the software more usable for real world use cases. We credit https://www.nuget.org/packages/ZXing.Net/ and Michael Jahn for their excelent work porting Zebra Crossing to .Net which certainly helped make this project possible and was permissivly licensed for commercial and academic usage as agreed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0)

We also credit the use of the AforgeNet image processing library excluding AForge.Video.FFMPEG under LGPL v3 license which permits both commerical and academic usage and distribution. http://www.aforgenet.com/framework/license.html

No Net project should ever go without crediting Newtonsoft.JSON https://www.newtonsoft.com/json as it is the best serialization technology we know of for .Net platform projects.

We also attribute much of our PDF interoperablity to the use and inspiration of PDFSharp licensed again under the very permissive and commercial compatible MIT License. http://www.pdfsharp.net/PDFsharp_License.ashx ... and also ComponentAce for libtiff.net https://github.com/BitMiracle/libtiff.net/blob/master/license.txt

We also thank Anders Hejlsberg (also of Borland heritage) for his beautiful, expressive yet strict architecture and extension of ECMA which we now know as C#. It is by far our "language of choice", perhaps over English and Python. It has something for everyone, at highest and lower level programming, on multiple platforms. It was also designed with Developers and IDEs in mind, creating an ecosystem of stable Enterprise software.
