What is .Net?

A multi-purpose platform

.NET is an open-source developer platform supported by Microsoft. Contrary to a popular misconception, it is a cross-platform framework, used for building different types of applications for various industries – websites, services, and apps on Windows, iOS, and Android. It can be used in web, mobile, desktop, microservices, gaming, machine learning, cloud, and IoT apps.

A variety of programming languages

.NET supports a wide range of programming languages ​​such as C# (most commonly used), Virtual Basic, C++, F#, Python, and more. Apps can be developed on any system – Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Features of .NET


.NET has evolved to a cross-platform implementation that can be used to develop applications for Windows, macOS, and multiple distributions of Linux. No matter you work in C#, F#, or Visual Basic, your code will run natively on any compatible operating system. The written code and favorite libraries can be shared across all platforms.


.NET proves to be useful in virtually any kind of software – web apps, cloud environments, docker, desktop apps with UI on many platforms, console apps, and libs. From mobile applications running on Android, iOS, and Windows, to enterprise server applications running on Linux or Windows Server, or large-scale microservices running in the cloud, .NET offers a solution for you.


Although having been created by Microsoft, .NET is an open-source platform with a vibrant yet mature community gathered around it. .NET has over 100,000 contributions from developers and from over 3,700 companies. This means that whenever you’re facing some issues in your project, the chances are high that the community will offer help or the solution already exists.

.NET repositories typically use the MIT or Apache 2 license, some use Creative Commons Attribution 4.0. The documentation, libraries, runtime, compilers, etc. are open-source as well.

Benefits of .NET

With .NET you can build high-performance and secure cross-platform applications.

Applications taking advantage of .NET provide great performance, better response time, and require less computing power. Actually, it performs faster than many other popular frameworks in terms of e.g. database access or server-side template rendering. The code can be reused across all platforms, thus it shortens the overall development time.

The .NET platform provides an increased application security thanks to its managed runtime. A collection of services prevent critical issues to alter compiled code. Also, whenever any threats are discovered, updates are released quickly. Not to mention a trusted, multi-billion company standing behind .NET.
