Overview

Nowadays, there are many platforms available for developing websites as well as cross platform mobile applications. In this blog we are going to discuss .NET technology. We will check why .NET is preferred, and which kind of applications we can develop in .NET.

So let’s explore why we should develop projects in .NET.

 .NET Applications.

.NET provides a wide range of building an application with .NET in different ways are as below:

Websites & Rest API’s

  • .NET makes it easy to build secure API services that reach a broad range of clients including web or mobile devices.
  • Both Web Pages and Services side by side are used to build framework and patterns in the same project
  • We can also create an Admin Panel which is used for developing dynamic web pages to manage dynamic data between database and website.

Content Management System

  • CMS is a software used for managing the creation and modification of digital content particular enterprise and web content management.
  • CMS is a software used for managing the creation and modification of digital content particular enterprise and web content management.
  • NopCommerce and Umbraco are included as an example of CMS.
  • NopCommerce enables us to multi-store using one interface using a single installation. Also enables to host more than one front-end store on different domains and can be managed by Admin Panel.
  • Umbraco is a CMS which includes managing and adding dynamic content like a blog, news, products exploring and many more..

Features.

Cross Platform Support

  • Cross Platform-specific development is becoming fast with multiple internet touchpoints. Implementation of .NET code to run smoothly and continuously on Windows, Linux and OS.
  • Anyway the whether code should in C#, F# or Visual Basic it will be perfectly compatible with the .NET Ecosystem.

High Security

  • Platform-specific development is becoming fast, with multiple internet touchpoints. Implementation of .NET code to run smoothly and continuously on Windows, Linux and OS.
  • .NET offers top concern security with over simple yet flexible features like Configuration, Exception Handling, Authentication, Communication Security & Code Access Security.

Support of Azure

  • Microsoft Azure hosting is friendly and easily acquirable and also provides more services with cloud as well with the powerful support of .Net Native tools.
  • For making the Project Development easy and smoother Microsoft provides a tool named Microsoft Visual Studio.

Provides Libraries

  • .Net is having a wide range of standard libraries for accelerating datas and simplifying the process of programming developed by Microsoft.
  • Also Provides a Base Class Libraries and Framework Class Libraries with interfaces, reusable classes, value types and many more.

Error Checking & Diagnosis

  • Another factor that adds the value proposition of .NET for web development is the availability of debugging tools. Using Visual Studio IDE, developers gain access to a comprehensive set of tools that provides bug detection and removal.
  • For error detection Visual Studio provides a technique of debugging, so testers/developers can add breakpoints to the code to pause the program when an error is detected.
  • Code, DbgCLR and CorDbg are a few examples of .NET Debugging.

Future Scope

  • .NET provides a strong community “write once run anywhere” with rapid growth.
  • As Microsoft announced recently, new versions have a clear path and evolution of .NET as for next several years.
  • As we know .Net ecosystem has 5 major components: Common Infrastructures, .NET Standards, .Net Framework, .NET Core & Xamarin.
  • .NET is a complete full-stack framework with large-scale and scalable applications.
  • Has a Survey on Stack Overflow Developer Survey in previous years2019 and 2020 editions.

Server Hosting.

  • Mostly, people think that hosting of .NET Application is very costly, and creates a myth of purchasing the license for it.
  • As .NET Released .NET CORE and .NET5, which now can be hosted everywhere, we can also host our website in Linux as well.
  • .NET web applications can be hosted easily in Azure with a set of tools and libraries for building web applications and services.
  • With auto scaling, patching, CI/CD, advanced monitoring and production debugging snapshots with Azure App Service to make easier building and running applications.

Conclusion

  • We can start small or big projects with a decent budget or startup that requires the quickest and cheapest possible solution.
  • .NET is capable of performing even the most complicated tasks with great support and ease, extensions and with available tools which are free, open source, lightweight and able to work on multiple operating systems.
  • Now, the old .NET is no more and alive versions have a great future with .NET Core.. and .NET 5!!
  • Do you want to develop your next project using .NET ? Don’t hesitate to contact us. Our 5 to 7 years expertise in this technology will be put in good use.!
