Description

What is .NET?

.NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more.

What is MEAN?

MEAN (Mongo, Express, Angular, Node) is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured.

What is Buffalo?

Buffalo is Go web framework. Yeah, I hate the word "framework" too! Buffalo is different though. Buffalo doesn't want to re-invent wheels like routing and templating. Buffalo is glue that wraps all of the best packages available and makes them all play nicely together.
