Likelihood to Recommend


I highly recommend .Net as a platform for custom development. We can leverage several UI elements and also integrate with third party controls like Telerik, Infragistics etc. Provides platforms, tools, and a programming environment for addressing the design and overall management of distributed and multi-tiered applications. It offers immeasurable benefits for various issues like memory management, security, and exceptional handling, a developer may face. .NET is not suited in case of multi-platform requirement. There isn't support available from MS and isn't available straight after installing Visual Studio. If that is a criteria for your business case then consider a different platform.Also .NET is very easy to reverse engineer. If you do not obfuscate your code, you may as well publish the source code.The footprint of your application can be huge if it requires a version of .NET, which is not already on the computer and therefore has to be installed first.

  • Image manipulation slow compared to C++.
  • Does not run on Mac/Linux - the newest .NET core does but presents only a subset of the framework.
  • May require the installation of the framework to run.
