We like technology that is easy to use, runs quickly and is reliable. Sounds obvious, but many programs designed for the web can be slow and don’t always work consistently.
The problem is that web programs must work on different operating systems like MS Windows, Apple OS and Linux. Our programs must then be able to run in different web browsers like Internet Explorer, FireFox, Safari and Google Chrome. To make things even more complicated, different versions of these browsers can behave differently.
We have chosen Microsoft’s ASP.NET as our web application development platform. It offers us security, all the features we need and has vast industry support. It has been designed to create dynamic websites. We use this feature to develop the flexible websites that our clients can change.
The following major organisations have also chosen ASP.NET for their web development:
Why do we use Microsoft ASP.NET?
- Support for many popular programming languages.
The .NET framework supports all the major programming languages like Visual basic, C#, J# (Java), Python and Visual C++. This gives us flexibility. We have chosen to use C# to develop our websites.
- Improved performance.
ASP.NET offers faster performance than previous architectures. Unlike PHP, ASP.NET programs are ’compiled’ by the web server which gives you a faster application. The compilation process also checks the code for ’bugs’ giving you a more robust website.
- Powerful functionality.
ASP.NET is part of the .NET Framework which includes a variety of powerful tools that lets your web application perform operations normally restricted to desktop applications. This gives us greater flexibility.
We can concentrate on developing professional websites without having to worry about coding low-level system requirements. The .NET framework takes care of these functions for us.
ASP.NET allows us to develop applications that can be easily scaled up to handle ’millions’ of requests without loosing application speed or manageability.
We all know how important internet security is today. ASP.NET runs under Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS) platform which controls the security of your web application on the server, well before any hacker has a chance to violate your site’s integrity. You cannot get any better security.
ASP.NET has an enormous developer community which we are apart of. This adds to the support and the many .NET add-ons that can further extend the capability of your website. The options seem endless.
