Choosing the right technology for your desktop application project can be hard. We've created a short questionnaire to help you make an informed decision.
However, these results might exclude the project requirements and there are quite a few factors to be considered before drawing the line.
Additionally, developers have to consider factors such as framework sustainability and long term usability, the ease of setting up a build-environment to ensure an easy hand-off to other people maintaining the app, as well as documentation to help your developers get started.
In order to make the right decision, you first need to answer these questions for yourself and assess the possible options based on them. This topic is pretty massive and there is no one size fits all solution. Not only that, but as we are embracing the mobile-first mindset, you have to think about extending your desktop app experience towards other device families, such as phones or tablets.
Here at Progress, we have a long history with the .NET stack and the various technologies and frameworks revolving around it. Our mission has always been to empower developers and provide them with the right tools, whether UI or productivity, to enable faster and more robust application development. With that in mind, we felt the need to step in and help you solve the challenges you face in your day to day tasks.
We've created a short questionnaire to guide you in the right technology of choice for your next .NET desktop application. The questions are aimed at narrowing down the options and providing the best solution for your case. Based on your answers, we will suggest the best match of technology for you, backed up by a detailed overview, a comparison with alternative options and resources to kick-start your development.
We hope you find this survey useful—please feel free to reach out and let us know what you think in the comment section below!
