How Your Company Can Benefit From Hiring .NET Developers

What Could .NET Developers Do for Your Business?

How many languages are being used by your company’s development team? Of those languages, which ones actually serve a purpose that can help your business grow and which ones are only there to keep everything patched together?

If you do have engineers working to keep your systems patched together (just so your supply chain can continue supplying), it’s probably time you rethink how things are done within your company.

Is it time you begin the process of rebuilding those systems such that they aren’t pieced together by hope and a held breath? Would your company benefit from bringing in new languages to help create a network of systems and services better capable of standing up to the demand placed by modern-day computing and users?

If that’s the case, what languages should you be adding? Although you might be tempted to latch onto the latest craze, you might consider one or more languages that have been holding on for some time, and doing so with considerable effectiveness.

One such language is .NET. But what could .NET developers do for your business? Let’s break it down and find out.

What Is .NET?

For those that don’t know, .NET is a free (and open-source), cross-platform developer framework highly capable of building apps for web, mobile, desktop, games, and even the IoT. 

The .NET platform can be used with the C#, F#, and Visual Basic languages. If you’re not sure what those languages are:

  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    C#
    C# is a modern, object-oriented, general-purpose programming language that makes it possible to construct robust and durable applications. C# includes support for asynchronous operations, pattern matching, unified type system, versioning, exception handling, and garbage collection.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    F#
    F# an open-source, cross-platform language that empowers users to tackle complex problems with simple and robust code. F# is mostly used as the CLI language for .NET Core, but can also generate JavaScript and graphics processing unit (GPU) code.
  • 1_soak_BDev_SRP_Numeros
    Visual Basic
    Visual Basic is a third-gen, event-driven programming language and has been declared legacy by Microsoft since 2008. So although .NET does support VB, chances are you won't be using it much (and will stick with C# and F#).

One aspect that is often very attractive to developers is that the .NET Standard offers a base set of APIs that are common to all .NET implementations. This means .NET code can execute from different platforms—Linux, macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android. That means your .NET developers could much more easily create cross-platform applications, all from a single standard. That’s not only a time-saver but can translate to saving your bottom line. 

Finally, the .NET community (which includes Microsoft) maintains a robust package ecosystem, built on the .NET Standard, and is delivered by way of the NuGet package manager. By using NuGet, developers can work with over 90,000 packages for .NET development.

What Can .Net Do for My Company?

.NET can help deliver a more modern future for your business, a future that is firmly grounded in the technologies that are driving today’s enterprises. What are these technologies?

Web applications

Your business can’t survive on the standard, old-school website. Instead, you must lean on a more modern approach which includes integrated web applications. These web applications are small apps that run on a web server and can do much more than your website alone can. Web applications are accessed through a web browser, so they can be used across nearly any platform. With .NET development, you can roll out effective web applications.

1

Mobile applications

Android alone holds over 70% of the global operating system market share. That means, in order to be truly successful, you’re going to have to offer mobile applications for your business model. .NET can make this a reality for your company.

2

Microservices

Make it such that your developers can create independently deployable services via container runtimes, such as Docker.

3

Machine Learning

With .NET you can add a number of machine learning features such as visual algorithms and predictive models to your mobile and web applications.

4

IoT

With .NET, your developers can make apps for the Internet of Things that include support for the Raspberry Pi single-board computers.

Is .NET Outdated?

Consider this: there are over 60,000 active individuals and 3,700 companies contributing to .NET. This is made possible because .NET is open source, so anyone can contribute. With that many active developers, .NET is far from outdated. In fact, with such a large number of active contributors, .NET remains on par with many newer languages.

And considering that .NET is capable of working with modern technologies such as containers and the cloud, you can be sure that .NET will continue to enjoy a long lifespan. So even though, by modern considerations, .NET is a dinosaur, it’s still very relevant. 

As was mentioned earlier, .NET is open-source; included with that are ASP.NET, the .NET compiler, runtime, framework, and libraries. That means all of those active contributors are working with the entire toolkit to keep it relevant.

And because .NET is scalable, it can grow with your company.
