Dot net programming has distinct advantages over other forms of web site development; amongst other things that down load times can be faster and chances of improving rankings on search engines are improved.
Computer languages are constantly being changed and adapted; and both supply and demand for different types of programmers is a fluid situation.
There is no doubt that Visual Basic.Net is a better language to learn than Visual basic; and that ASP.Net is a preferable language to ASP.
Whether you are an experience programmer or just a beginner; you need to commit to constantly updating your skills and staying at the front of the IT industry if you are to be most successful as a web programmer.
WHAT IS MICROSOFT.NET?
At the turn of the century, rather than continue to make incremental improvements to Visual Basic, Microsoft decided to introduce a major new product, the .NET framework, which includes Visual Basic, C#/C++ along with features to enable building interactive and eCommerce websites.
Microsoft explains the concept of .NET in these words:
“Microsoft® .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices. It enables a high level of software integration through the use of Web services – small, discrete, building-block applications that connect to each other as well as to other, larger applications over the Internet.”
Microsoft’s .NET platform was released in 2001 as a new feature to their Windows family of products. This affects many aspects of Information Technology because Windows products are responsible for a major share of home and office computers systems and website servers on the Internet. The technology behind .NET allows programmers (often called ‘developers’) to create software programs or applications that utilise the wide spectrum of information technology resources used every day by people around the world.
A New Approach to Building Windows Software
The .NET Framework simplifies Windows software development. It provides developers with a single approach to build both desktop applications (sometimes called ‘smart client applications’) and web-based applications. It also enables developers to use the same tools and skills to develop software for a variety of systems ranging from handheld smart phones to large server installations.
Software built on the .NET Framework can be easier to deploy and maintain than conventional software. Applications can be designed to automatically upgrade themselves to the latest version. The .NET Framework can also minimise conflicts between applications by helping incompatible software components coexist.
