Quality ASP.NET development requires a variety of tools and technologies to build high-performance web applications. Here are some of the most important ASP.NET development tools and related technologies we use here at Keene Systems:
Visual Studio: Visual Studio is where we spend most of our time during development. It is a popular and powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) used for building ASP.NET applications. It was developed by Microsoft and comes with numerous tools for ASP.NET developers. It allows a .NET programmer to edit code, debug code, compile applications, test applications, manage code, facilitate collaboration, and do application profiling to identify and fix performance issues.
C#: C# is a modern and popular programming language used for ASP.NET development. It is an adaptible language that can be used for many types of software applications, from web development to gaming and mobile app development. Although Visual Basic (VB.NET) is also available in ASP.NET, most programmers prefer C# because of its elegance and strong data types.
SQL Server: Microsoft SQL Server is a reliable and scalable relational database management system (RDBMS) used for storing and retrieving data in ASP.NET applications. It is well suited for building online databases. It provides features such as data encryption, backup and recovery, and data analysis. ASP.NET is highly optimized to work efficiently with SQL Server.
Entity Framework: Entity Framework is an object-relational mapping (ORM) framework that simplifies the process of accessing and manipulating data in a database. It provides a way to work with databases using a set of high-level abstractions. Entity Framework works well with SQL Server, as it allows developers to map SQL Server tables to .NET classes and provides a set of APIs for performing CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations on the database. This integration enables developers to build efficient and scalable database-driven applications that are easy to maintain and update over time.
Azure: Azure is a cloud computing platform developed by Microsoft and used for hosting and deploying ASP.NET applications. It provides a wide range of cloud services, including virtual machines, databases, and storage, and can help reduce infrastructure costs for businesses.
Git: Git is a code version control system used for managing and tracking changes to ASP.NET code. It allows developers to collaborate on code changes and easily roll back changes if needed.
Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core: Telerik makes a comprehensive cross-browser Component Library for ASP.NET Core specifically for front-end developers. It has more than 110 user interface components that enhance ASP.NET Core applications giving them rich user interfaces. This library improves the user experience and reduces the amount of custom software development time.
Angular: Angular is another front-end web application framework set of tools for building dynamic and interactive web applications.
Web API: Web API is a framework for building services that can be consumed by different clients. It works with ASP.NET to provide a complete solution for building REST API services and web applications that communicate with various clients. This integration enables developers to build modern web applications that efficiently provide data and services to different clients.
ASP.NET MVC: ASP.NET MVC is a framework for building web applications that follows the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern. It provides developers with a way to separate an app's data, user interface, and control logic, making it easier to build complex web applications. In ASP.NET MVC, the Model represents the data and business logic, the View represents the user interface, and the Controller handles user input and updates the Model and View accordingly.
Web Services: ASP.NET web services allow developers to expose the functionality of a web application as a service. These services can be consumed by other applications. They can be built using SOAP or REST and provide interoperability between different systems and platforms, even across the internet.
ASP.NET Web Forms: ASP.NET Web Forms is a framework for web-based data entry forms and user interfaces using server-side controls and event-driven programming. It provides a rich set of controls for creating dynamic user interfaces and can be easily integrated with other ASP.NET frameworks such as MVC and Web API.
