In the first part of this article, ‘Top 5 Tools for .NET Development. Part 1’, we talked about the 5 essential tools pros at .Net development companies are using.
Consider also the top 8 of technologies and frameworks most appropriate for .Net programming.
- ASP.NET MVC
This open-source web software framework implements the MVC (model view controller) pattern which helps to create apps separating their different aspects like input logic, UI logic and business logic while providing some loose coupling between the elements.
- ASP.NET Web API
This framework makes it easier to create HTTP services with a broad reach of clients, including mobile devices and browsers. It makes a perfect platform for building .NET-based RESTful applications.
- ASP.NET SignalR
This new ASP.NET library for developers makes real-time web-based functionality development easy. It allows a bi-directional communication of server and client which ensures now servers can instantly push content to the connected clients. SignalR has Web Sockets support and also provides support for some compatible older browsers’ techniques. It includes connection management, authorization and grouping connections APIs.
- Entity Framework
This object-relational mapper enables a .Net development company to handle relational data via domain-specific objects. The framework eliminates the necessity for most data-access code developers usually have to write.
All of these technologies can be downloaded using NuGet.
In conclusion, all web developers agree that owning the right technologies and tools at hand is crucial for successful building of enterprise web apps no matter which programming language or development platform you choose. Thus, selecting your right tools and framework at the very beginning of your project boosts the chances for successful completion of your web app.
