Hearing a lot of buzz on all that’s going on in the .NET space with ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6? Microsoft is releasing a revolutionary version of the .NET framework, which makes some ASP.NET developers uncertain stepping into 2015.
At Progress, we're excited about the upcoming changes and would like to explain why we believe this is one of the best times to be an ASP.NET developer.
Here are some of the burning questions we’ll address:
Investing in third party ASP.NET toolsets is well worth it, but only if you find the best toolset for your project. But what characteristics should you be looking for, and how do you make a thorough—but fast—evaluation?
To help, we created a checklist of factors to consider on your quest for productivity. You can save even more time by using the handy spreadsheet provided at the end. It enables you to quickly rate different solutions on a range of predefined factors.
Do you stick to the default ASP.NET controls because you doubt the productivity gains of third-party controls? Telerik Developer Evangelist, Jeff Fritz, gave himself a challenge: build the same application by allocating 30 minutes to working with the default Visual Studio toolset and 30 minutes to Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX. He then compared the results based on how much functionality he implemented and the amount of code he had to write. The productivity gap may surprise you.
