Applications, both web and mobile, are increasingly complex and full of functions, in order to adapt to the demands of modern users and all the trends in technology, so a developer must use the ideal tool to be able to create them efficiently. Correct, the .Net framework can be that tool since it is a popular technology in building applications for Windows, Linux and macOS.
Developed by Microsoft, .Net as a framework is primarily used for applications that need to run on different platforms, such as game consoles, mobile devices like phones and tablets, and also on various browsers like the ones mentioned above. All of this makes it clear that the power of .Net lies in its open source, cross-platform nature.
The most striking feature of .Net is its ability to create cross-platform applications and websites, which gives great power of creativity and flexibility to the developer and the company that uses it, but it has other characteristics that define it:
The adoption of the .Net framework by developers worldwide has been amazing, exceedingly even Microsoft's own expectations from the moment it was launched on the market. Our own team of experts has also made use of .Net to provide solutions to the problems and technological needs that our clients present.
Proof of its growing popularity is the study carried out by Statista, a web portal specializing in surveys and data. According to what was published, in a survey carried out among developers worldwide, during 2022 more than 34% used the .Net framework to create their web applications, significantly moving away from second place: NumPy with 28%.
There are many benefits of using .NET to develop web applications. Here are some of them:
In general, using .NET to develop web applications provides developers with a robust, flexible, and scalable platform that supports modern web development technologies and provides high-level security features.
At Rootstack we have used .Net on numerous occasions to solve the problems and technological needs of clients, as was the case with an educational institute, which required a platform that would allow it to automate reporting management. In the first instance, a consultancy was offered to analyze the data structure of the system and its administrators, to move on to the graphic design of the platform and the software design, ending with the training of the university personnel, as well as the creation of a final user manual, the installation of the platform on the server and its start-up.
The proposed technology for this project was .NET. The advantage of having used it in this project is that it is an open source and multiplatform framework, which provides technicians with a fairly flexible environment when developing applications, so it can be adjusted to all types of companies or businesses.
