WHY Zero42?

Michael Mansfield has been working in the telecom & data networks industry since 1986, having completed his apprenticeship whilst working at CAMTECH™ Electronics as part of the design team behind the famous Joint Academic NETwork [JNT X25] (JANet) the forerunner for what we now know as the internet.

Janet developed out of a number of local and research networks dating back to the 1970s. The JANet system first went live in April 1983, hosting about 50 sites with line speeds of 9.6 kbit/s. In the mid-80s the backbone was upgraded to a 2 Mbit/s backbone with 64 kbit/s access links, and a further upgrade in the early 1990s sped the backbone to 8 Mbit/s and the access links to 2 Mbit/s, making Janet the fastest X.25 network in the world.

Renowned for his in depth knowledge of both voice and data transmission protocols our founder has worked with some of the UK’s largest network providers, private corporations and government bodies whilst specialising in cyber counter-intelligence and network security.

Let us produce your next website, mobile app or program C#, C, C++, Java, VB, Python, PHP, SQL, HTML5, Ruby, ASP.NET


There are hundreds of programming languages in use today, some are specific to a particular area of industry, some are more suited to mobile technologies whilst others are essential for e-commerce and web deployment.

You will already have a good idea of how you want to layout your website, or what features and functions are deployed within your mobile app [application] etc., but without careful and precise planning any development you may simply be wasting time and resources, which is why we offer free consultancy and a professional planning service led by programmers with at least 10 years real world programming experience.

We don’t employ sales personnel often driven by targets, only highly experienced programmers from a wide range of language disciplines who understand what it takes to deliver an outstanding final product. Everything we produce is designed and written in-house which means that we do not have to outsource any of the programming or design tasks to third-party agencies unless by prior consent, this of course has far reaching security implications some of which you may not have previously considered. See HackZero™ white-hat hacking & penetration testing for more details.

Web Design

  • One page Responsive
  • Multipage Responsive

  • Intranet/Employee Site

A website is an essential part of modern business and the first and only port of call for many of your potential customers. The difference between a good website and a GREAT website comes down to a few basic golden rules. Intuitive Navigation, Dynamic Design and of course Engaging Content.

Whatever the nature of your business, we can work with you to create a website that you will be truly proud of.

Web Applications

  • SMS Integration
  • Payment & e-Commerce
  • Database Fulfilment
  • SaaS
  • CRM/Contact Management
  • Backoffice Integration

A web application is different to a web site or web page. Think of it as a computer program that happens to run from within a web page rather than on the actual computer.

If you need to do much more than just host information about your business or collect some basic user contact forms from within your website then you are probably looking at a dedicated web application. Zero42 can build a web application to do pretty much anything you require. We could build an application to access complex database files, manage offline subscriptions and client details through an online interface and anything else you can dream of.

Mobile Apps

  • Dynamic Content
  • User Engagement
  • NFR Contactless
  • Scan & Capture
  • Location Specific
  • Sensor Specific

You already use a smartphone and so will be familiar with the term “there’s an App for that” and with over 2.2 million apps on Google Play™, 2 million more on Apple App Store™ and yet another 700,000 on Microsoft’s Windows Store™ we are fairly confident that you will find something out there that meets your needs. And with over 1000 new apps appearing every day this is certainly a growing marketplace.

If you have an idea for new app, whether it be something specifically for your business and branded accordingly, a game, a tool or anything else you can imagine then we have the expertise to bring together everything you need to deliver your perfect app to the waiting world.


No pushy salespeople just great advice.


Love it or your money back.

Bespoke Software

Apart from designing web applications & mobile apps we can utilise a variety of programming skills to develop standalone software.This could be software designed to be installed on desktop computers around your office, or software deployed on you own servers.

Typically this type of software tends to be highly industry specific (bespoke) and more secure than open source applications and internet based solutions.

You may need standalone software to control equipment, or to perform a series of tasks based on machine inputs gathered from around your business.

Hosting & Hardware

Once you have developed your website , application or program you will need somewhere to store it / run it. For websites and applications this is called “hosting”, and a variety of different platforms are available depending on your individual needs.

Apps that you want others to download can be submitted to the likes of Google™, Apple™ & Microsoft™ for inclusion in their online stores, whilst Web Apps and Websites need to sit within a domain. This can be from within a shared hosting platform or on your own dedicated web server.

We offer a number of hosting environments and a variety of language platforms. See CloudZero™ for an indication of pricing and hosting options.

Below you will find a selection of our language favourites along with examples of actual code....just for a bit of fun and so you can get a flavour of what actual code looks like.


Java uses a compiler, and is an object-oriented language released in 1995 by Sun Microsystems. Java is the number one programming language today for many reasons. First, it is a well-organized language with a strong library of reusable software components. Second, programs written in Java can run on many different computer architectures and operating systems because of the use of the JVM ( Java virtual machine ). Sometimes this is referred to as code portability or even WORA ( write once, run anywhere ). Third, Java is the language most likely to be taught in university computer science classes. A lot of computer science theory books written in the past decade use Java in the code examples. So learning Java syntax is a good idea even if you never actually code in it.


public class HelloWorld {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Prints "Hello, World" to the terminal window.
        System.out.println("Hello, World");


C is a compiled, procedural language developed in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie for use in the UNIX operating system. Although designed to be portable in nature, C programs must be specifically compiled for computers with different architectures and operating systems. This helps make them lightning fast. Although C is a relatively old language, it is still widely used for system programming, writing other programming languages, and in embedded systems.


int main()
  char string[] = "Hello World";
  printf("%s\n", string);
  return 0;


C++ is a compiled, multi-paradigm language written as an update to C in 1979 by Bjarne Stroustrup. It attempts to be backwards-compatible with C and brings object-orientation, which helps in larger projects. Despite it's age, C++ is used to create a wide array of applications from games to office suites.


int main ()
  std::cout << "Hello World! ";
  std::cout << "I'm a C++ program";


PHP uses a run-time interpreter, and is a multi-paradigm language originally developed in 1996 by Rasmus Lerdorf to create dynamic web pages. At first it was not even a real programming language, but over time it eventually grew into a fully featured object-oriented programming language. Although PHP has been much criticized in the past for being a bit sloppy and insecure, it's been pretty good since version 5 came out in 2004. It's hard to argue with success. Today, PHP is the most popular language used to write web applications.

Hello World


VB ( or Visual Basic ) Visual Basic is an interpreted, multi-paradigm language developed by Microsoft Corporation for the Windows platform. It has been evolving over the years and is seen as a direct descendant of Microsoft's old BASIC from the 1970's. Visual Basic is a good language for scripting Windows applications that do not need the power and speed of C#.


' A "Hello, World!" program in Visual Basic. 
Module Hello
  Sub Main()
      MsgBox("Hello, World!") ' Display message on computer screen.
  End Sub 
End Module


Python is an interpreted, multi-paradigm programming language written by Guido van Rossum in the late 1980's and intended for general programming purposes. Python was not named after the snake but actually after the Monty Python comedy group. Python is characterized by its use of indentation for readability, and its encouragement for elegant code by making developers do similar things in similar ways. Python is used as the main programming choice of both Google and Ubuntu.


print("Hello, World!")


C# is a compiled, object-oriented language written by Microsoft. It is an open specification, but rarely seen on any non-Windows platform. C# was conceived as Microsoft's premium language in its .NET Framework. It is very similar to Java in both syntax and nature.


// Hello1.cs
public class Hello1
   public static void Main()
      System.Console.WriteLine("Hello, World!");


JavaScript is an interpreted, multi-paradigm language. A very strange one too. Despite its name, it has nothing whatsoever to do with Java. You will rarely, if ever, see this language outside of a web browser. It is basically a language meant to script behaviours in web browsers and used for things such as web form validation and AJAX style web applications. The trend in the future seems to be building more and more complex applications in JavaScript, even simple online games and office suites. The success of this trend will depend upon advancements in the speed of a browser's JavaScript interpreter. If you want to be correct, the real name of this programming language is ECMAscript, although almost nobody actually calls it this.


    alert('Hello, World!')


Perl is an interpreted, multi-paradigm language written by Larry Wall in 1986. It is characterized by a somewhat disorganized and scary-looking syntax which only makes sense to other PERL programmers ;) However, a lot of veteran programmers love it and use if every day as their primary language. 10 years ago, Perl was more popular than it is today. What happened? A lot of newer programmers and even old Perl programmers switched to other languages such as PHP, Python, and Ruby. Perl is perhaps still the best language for text processing and system administration scripting.


# hello.pl - My first CGI program
print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n";
# Note there is a newline between 
# this header and Data
# Simple HTML code follows
print " \n";
print "Hello, world!";
print "\n";
print "\n";
print "

Hello, world!

\n"; print " \n";


Ruby is an interpreted, object-oriented language written by Yukihiro Matsumoto around 1995. It is one of the most object-oriented languages in the world. Everything is an object in Ruby, even letters and numbers can have method calls. It's a great language to learn if you love objects. The only negative is that it's love of object-orientation makes it a bit slow, even for an interpreted language.


class HelloWorld
   def initialize(name)
      @name = name.capitalize
   def sayHi
      puts "Hello #{@name}!"
hello = HelloWorld.new("World")


HyperText Markup Language, commonly abbreviated as HTML, is the standard markup language used to create web pages. Along with CSS, and JavaScript, HTML is a cornerstone technology used to create web pages as well as to create user interfaces for mobile and web applications. Web browsers can read HTML files and render them into visible or audible web pages. HTML describes the structure of a website semantically and, before the advent of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), included cues for the presentation or appearance of the document (web page), making it a markup language, rather than a programming language.


This is title
Hello world


Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language rather than a dedicated programming language, used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language like HTML. Although most often used to set the visual style of web pages and user interfaces written in HTML and XHTML, the language can be applied to any XML document, including plain XML, SVG and XUL, and is applicable to rendering in speech, or on other media. Along with HTML and JavaScript, CSS is a cornerstone technology used by most websites to create visually engaging webpages, user interfaces for web applications, and user interfaces for many mobile applications.
