Nothing but .NET

Starved Rock Country Software Solutions was born on the idea that we can bring high tech, high paying jobs back to the Starved Rock Country area. Part of this process is the new programming class at LaSalle-Peru Area Career Center. Though only one class has been completed (it started in the spring of 2018) it has already created some very skilled programming students. The hope is to bring them aboard our team.
