.NET is a free, open-source programming tool developed by Microsoft. It’s used by developers around the world to create beautiful, practical, seamless, and intuitive cross-platform applications for the web, desktop, mobile (Android and iOS), cloud, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Aside from being incredibly versatile, .NET development is one of the most streamlined and cost-effective ways to launch a new application, enabling businesses to get to market sooner and leap ahead of the competition.

What’s the story behind .NET?
.NET was originally developed by Microsoft in the late 1990’s for the sole purpose of powering a variety of Microsoft-exclusive .NET products.
While this ambitious idea ended up being commercially unsuccessful, the company saw the potential of the framework, so they released it as a standalone product in 2002. The source code was then made available to the public in 2007.
Since then, Microsoft has continued to update the framework, with the most recent version of .NET Core being released in 2020. The framework also has a strong, dedicated user community, which has contributed significantly to the vast amount of knowledge and expertise available on the internet.
What sets .NET development apart from other tools?
One of the biggest advantages is the fact that .NET is an OOP (Object Oriented Programming) framework.
What does that mean? Essentially, developers view the data they work with as objects. They have the freedom to determine which objects to work with, what their unique attributes are, and how they function within the context of an application. Developers can even reuse portions of their existing code to slash development times and cost, thus, making it an attractive choice for businesses.
In addition, .NET developers can draw from a variety of stock and custom libraries and assets to bring their applications to life. This makes it easy to quickly take an idea from concept to realisation, yet, at the same time, give the application its own unique look and feel that sets it apart from the rest.
Most importantly, .NET is capable of delivering a native experience across multiple platforms, with just one single code piece. Again, this greatly reduces development time and costs.
Benefits of .NET
Without the need to write individual code for each version of a specific application, businesses can release their product on multiple platforms, often, at the same time, thus being able to reach a wider audience.
.NET is powerful enough to build applications for the web, desktop, mobile, cloud, and IoT environment. Just some of the many pieces of software built with .NET include Microsoft Outlook, Xero accounting software, and even the official Dell website.
Easy to scale
Over time, you can easily upscale or downscale your application as your business needs change. And your outsourced .NET developers only need to modify one piece of code.
Easy to maintain
By using just one programming language to power all your applications, you can easily maintain and update each version of your product, without spending a fortune.
Supportive user community
.NET has one of the strongest, most supportive, and helpful user communities out there. This makes it easy for developers to do quick troubleshooting. And, as time goes on, the chances of a developer running into a problem that someone else hasn’t already solved gets smaller. Thus, resulting in a faster and more streamlined development cycle.
Advanced security measures
.NET makes it easy to implement security into various applications and websites through the use of role-based security and cryptography models.
By using collaboration tools like Redmine and TFS (Team Foundation Server), outsourced .NET developers can collaborate with each other and showcase their work-in-progress to clients in real-time.
