Microsoft understood the pain of every business and developed the most appropriate and efficient solution to develop business applications in a fast and cost-effective manner.
That tool is called Dot NET. Dot NET is valuable and effective tools for programmers and developers to build dynamic, robust and feature-rich websites, web applications and mobile applications. This will be a particularly helpful solution for businesses that are seeking to start their websites with Dot NET. Dot NET will surely help you develop powerful apps, complex websites and deliver as per their business needs.
It’s news everywhere that Microsoft has been working to improvise .NET and making big changes to it this year 2020. In the last May, the company announced that it would be merging all of its .NET products like .NET Core and .NET Framework, into a single .NET.
Mostly .NET Framework is to build web, Windows, Windows Phone, Windows Server, and Microsoft Azure applications. Whereas, Dot NET Core framework is to build cross-platform device, cloud and IoT applications.
Recently, the company announced the last release the last version .NET Core 3.1 which will be separated from .NET products.
There will be a single .NET installation for .NET 5. Microsoft is planning to officially release .NET 5 in November 2020, with a preview coming out in the first half of 2020.
So now, let us discuss the major .NET Trends that will dominate in 2020 and will be beneficial for the developers and the industry.
1. The Popularity of .NET Core
The recent released by Microsoft, .NET Core has become one of the hottest frameworks in the market. The .NET Core framework includes AOT, GC, Runtime, JIT, Base Class Library, ASP.NET, C#, ML.NET, VB.NET, F#, Entity Framework, WinForms, WPF, and Xamarin.
.NET Core 3.1 is smaller and faster, which makes it ideal for cloud installations where density and speed are important.
It has the ability to fast JSON reading and writing and supports HTTP/2. This will surely make it much easier for developers to port desktop applications to .NET Core. However, .NET Core 3.1 is not considered as the features of the .NET Framework.
2. The Fabulous .NET 5
The future of .NET is now ready to rise with the famous and fabulous .NET 5. It’s one of the best frameworks that allow developers to migrate to Blazor or other alternatives such as Angular, React, and Vue SPA frameworks.
Other technology stacks have adopted .NET 5 bandwagon including Winforms, WPF, and UWP. All these technologies support desktop applications that work only on Windows.
Let’s see what .NET 5 has to offer:
- EF Core: Entity Framework Core will replace EF 6.
- ASP.NET Core: ASP.NET Core replaces ASP.NET.
- ASP.NET Core MVC: ASP.NET Core MVC unified ASP.NET MVC and Web API.
- MSIX: A new packing tool for desktop application replaces MSI package installer.
JsonDocument: Json Document library from the System.Text.Json.JsonDocument replaces json.net.
3. Cloud Service
Cloud service has been booming in the market because it provides a huge storage capacity. A large amount of data can be stored and accessed from anywhere around the world and that too, anytime! With an increasing trend of business, Microsoft has also developed a cloud storage application named Azure that provides big data and a complete analytics solution. With the help of Azure, now the organizations which are using the ASP.NET application can deploy on the cloud using ASP .NET MVC front-end.
4. Blazor Framework
Blazor is free, open-source, and one of the hottest frameworks to build amazing web apps using an assortment of C#, Razor, and HTML. It allows developers to create interactive User-Interfaces using C#. It makes an easier way for developers to share libraries and codes as C# is used to write client and server code. It doesn’t require any additional plugins or add-ons to run.
With the help of WebAssembly, Blazor runs directly in the browser with client-side C# code or run it server-side. This makes more interesting to see how developers will write for the web now.
Features of Blazor:
- Forms and validation
- Dependency injection
- Server-side rendering
5. ML.NET 1.4
This new update from Microsoft - ML.NET 1.4 will allow you to innovate your .NET applications with exciting new machine learning features.
ML.NET is an open-source and cross-platform machine learning framework which consists of Model Builder and CLI (Command-Line Interface) to make it easy to build custom Machine Learning (ML) models using Automated Machine Learning (AutoML).
With the help of ML.NET, developers can integrate it with their existing tools to develop and infuse custom ML into their applications by creating custom machine learning models for common scenarios like Sentiment Analysis, Price Prediction, Sales Forecast prediction, Customer segmentation, Image Classification and more!
This ML.NET 1.4 enables image classification based on DNN (Deep Neural Network) retraining with GPU support (GA release).
Here are models with GPU support
6. Absolutely Secure Platform
Whenever you are planning to develop any software application, you must have to look for its security features. Using .NET, you should be less worried about security as it provides features such as validations, code checks, encryptions and code access security.
It has an MVC architecture that leans towards SoC and therefore enables scalable and secure web and mobile applications.
With its new features and release in the market, .NET has been booming in the world of technology. It’s become the face of every web application. Whether you are planning to develop dynamic websites or mobile apps or business intelligence applications, .NET has all the features that make your apps more secure, reliable and scalable.
