After exploring Python in our previous blog post with Orsi, our Python team lead, we now shift our focus to .NET and sit down with Ioan, our .NET team lead to discover the values this technology brings to our product development. Let's embark on this exciting journey together and find out more.
Q: What are the key strengths of using .NET?
Ioan: Microsoft's .NET has many key strengths, but I won't bore you with them (a simple search on Google will do the trick). Instead, let me share my favorite aspects: it is a robust framework for building high-performance, scalable applications (you know, for when your website skyrockets to overnight fame), and with its extensive collection of libraries and frameworks, it provides ready-to-use solutions for various tasks in no time. And let's not forget its strong integration with the impressive Azure cloud platform. This shouldn't come as a surprise, but more than 80% (or 95% if you're reading Microsoft's blog - but let's keep it real) of Fortune 500 companies use Azure for their cloud computing needs. It's like having a Swiss Army knife that self-improves over time.
