    ASP.NET Development

    The benefits of ASP.NET

    In the world of software design and web application development, there is no software development tool as powerful or flexible as Microsoft ASP.NET. When combined with SQL Server on the back end you have an unbeatable combination that's scalable, secure, and rock solid! In the hands of the right development team, the ASP.NET platform can produce an adaptive, dynamic website that meets all of your business needs. If you are looking to build an industrial-strength web application, then ASP.NET is what you need. And our expert ASP.NET developers can bring your vision to life.

    What is ASP.NET

    Microsoft ASP.NET is a set of technologies, built on top of the Microsoft .NET Framework, for building Web applications and XML Web services. ASP.NET web pages execute on a web server in IIS (Internet Information Server) and generate markup such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML that is sent down to a desktop or mobile device browser. This is important because the application does not require any installation on the client computer beyond a web browser. This means your application can be run from anywhere, anytime, regardless of the hardware.

    ASP.NET pages use a compiled, event-driven programming model that maximizes performance and enables the separation of application logic and user interface. Development platforms like PHP are not compiled which means that simple syntax errors that would otherwise be caught by a compiler will sneak into production systems. Your clients may see these errors before you do! Also, PHP does not separate the logic from the user interface of the application thus leading to higher maintenance costs.

    ASP.NET pages contain server-side programming logic (as opposed to client-side logic like JavaScript) written in Microsoft Visual Basic .NET or Microsoft Visual C# .NET. Our team is well versed in both of these languages.

    ASP.NET offers a unified Web development model that includes the services necessary for you to build enterprise-class web apps. ASP.NET offers a new programming model and infrastructure that allows you to create a powerful new class of applications.

    What are the benefits of ASP.NET?

    There are many benefits to developing your next application in ASP.NET. These are a few:

    • It is built on top of a solid web framework software library of common functions that every programmer needs called the ASP.NET Framework.

    • It does not require any installation on the client computer, instead, it runs in a browser.

    • It allows leveraging of powerful management and monitoring tools provided by Windows Server.

    • Recovery, caching and scalability capabilities are built into the underlying technology.

    • ASP.NET Web Forms allow developing web application screens as easily as developing desktop application screens. It comes with a rich toolbox of prebuilt widgets that a web programmer can simply drag and drop onto a visual designer and then configure. This significantly reduces the amount of code and time required to build web apps.

    • Several powerful data access technologies are provided which allow integration with almost any backend data store. There is a very high degree of integration with SQL Server making data access a snap with Microsoft’s Entity Framework.

    • There are high productivity toolsets including Visual Studio, Team Explorer, Expression Blend, Profiling, Debugging, and Testing tools. Visual Studio has built-in tools for UX/UI design.

    • ASP dot net can be used in conjunction with React for the user interface design.

    • Language independence -- web development providers with Visual Basic or C-style programming language backgrounds can be equally productive quickly.

    • ASP.NET has built-in industrial strength security.

    • Built-in support for APIs that allow you to integrate with other web applications, like SalesForce, via ASP.NET Web APIs.

    • Built-in high-security user authentication.

    • ASP.NET MVC provides support for the Model-View-Controller which is a common software architectural pattern/template that separates an application into three main logical components: the model, the view, and the controller.

    • It allows applications to be integrated with Windows Active Directory.

    • It can be used to develop cloud applications with Microsoft Azure.

    • There is a robust ecosystem of 3rd party tool developers, like Telerik’s UI for ASP.NET AJAX, who produce add-on toolkits that make ASP.NET web applications even better.

    • It has support for mobile app development.

    • ASP.NET is now Open Source with its ASP.NET Core version. It now has cross-platform support and can target different operating systems like Windows, Linux, macOS, and Docker.

    Is ASP.NET good for web development?

    ASP.NET is a great choice for web application development. ASP.NET produces high-speed applications in part because it is pre-compiled. This also catches syntax errors before they get into production. It’s a low-cost, open-source platform with a large base of ASP.NET developers that use it.

    Because it is from Microsoft and is 22+ years old, it is a very stable and mature platform that you can count on to be around well into the future. ASP.NET comes with a great IDE (Integrated Development Environment) called Visual Studio that combines an editor, code management, compiler, and debugger all rolled into one tool.

    ASP.NET is designed to work very efficiently with Microsoft SQL Server but it also works with MySQL, Postgres, and MongoDB database platforms.

    The two main programming languages available, C# and VB.NET, are Object Oriented (OO) languages that provide patterns for code organization and code reuse, making applications less complex and easier to maintain. Between the .NET Framework and 3rd party toolkits, the amount of programming needed to solve complex problems is greatly reduced.

    Now, with the latest iteration of ASP.NET called ASP.NET Core, the tool is even better. .NET Core is the new and exciting cross-platform framework used to build applications for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Originally released in 2016, it is an open-source successor to Microsoft’s wildly popular .NET Framework.
