It is challenging for an IT professional to come up with solutions for different sets of problems if you have to learn every single programming language available. It also limits your opportunities to get exposed to various projects, thus, limiting your job opportunities. Versatility is an important factor when you are investing in learning a language, and this is where Microsoft .Net shines. You can work on desktop applications, web applications, and even mobile apps with the help of Xamarin.

Microsoft began the development of  .NET in the late 1990s; starting out as a proprietary software under the license of Microsoft. Today, .NET is considered as one of the most widely used open source developer frameworks.

With that, the demand for .NET continues to grow as the digital transformation journey of many corporations and organizations continue. The strength of .NET’s C# is renowned for its “application flexibility” and VB.NET for its predominantly “new developer base.” It can be defined as an easy to learn and versatile language/framework, with key development tools available to use. Visual Studio has always been regarded as one of the best IDEs available for developers. It even offers a free,  full featured community edition.

According to the TIOBE programming index, C# is already one of the top 5 programming languages, while VB.NET is coming in at top 6 to top 7, at the same rank of Javascript (December 2017 report). With the continuous popularity of .NET and its forefront languages, the future for these technology experts looks positive.
