What does the name Guid.New stand for and how is it pronounced?
The structure of the Guid.New logo refers to the binary code: the letters are derived from the two basic shapes circle and bar or the digits 0 and 1. The name of Guid.New represents a similar idea: the command from the Microsoft .NET Framework requests a new GUID (globally unique identifier) and is indicative of the company's desire to constantly create new things and to reinvent itself. The company name is pronounced like this:| guid njuː

However, we always have an open ear for all concerns and are open to many possibilities of working life.
