Credits & Endorsements

Work Time Studio is the result of years of work not only by Datasoft Solutions, but many more highly skilled developers and writers. Many 3rd party libraries and software products were used in the development of Work Time Studio. In fact, the completion of Work Time Studio would not be possible without the use of most of the libraries and software products listed below. Some of these libraries and software products are free for developers to use in open source and proprietary software products, and some of them are commercial library or software products. All of them are the top libraries and software products in their field, as we spent months researching to determine the best libraries and software products to use in Work Time Studio. So, we're proud to give the developers, development teams, and organizations of these libraries and software products full credit for their efforts and contribution to Work Time Studio. If you are a developer, in particular, a C++ developer, you'll recognize many of the libraries and products listed below, and will no doubt agree with my opinion about the quality of the libraries and products as well as the library developers.

Also listed below are some very high quality software tools and applications which helped with the development of Work Time Studio. Again, if it weren't for these tools and applications, the completion of Work Time Studio would have been very difficult, if not impossible. We also spent many months researching to pick the best tools and applications in their class. Some of these tools and applications are well known, and some you may be unfamiliar with. You can bet that their quality is unsurpassed by others which perform the same functionality.

Last but not least, we've listed the names of individuals who have made contributions to the completion of Work Time Studio in some way. Some of these individuals are previous co-workers, some are writers and authors, and some are other developers who have contributed to my opens source libraries which are used heavily in Work Time Studio. Again, their contributions helped to increase the quality of Work Time Studio. In many of the cases, the completion of Work Time Studio would not have been possible without their contribution.
