Description

What is Laravel?

Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.

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.

.NET

I use .NET Core 2.1 because it allows me to bring my OSS applications cross-platform. We're using .NET Core for everything since version 1.1- both front and back end services, or windows services. Moving to newer versions did cause us some problems though, because of the too many breaking changes brought by those versions. We really like dotnet cli extensibility model "DotnetCliTool", because we create plugin for docker build, reportgenerator.

.NET

I use .NET because of its community and Microsoft's commitment to open source. Game backends require many different design strategies, ranging from latency sensitive customer facing services to high-throughput eventually consistent data pipelines. Performance, tooling, and predictability are qualities that make these services successful and .NET helps me get there by having framework features which promote quick prototyping, but are mature enough to harden for production.

I have been working in .NET for more than 10 years. As an architect, I understand that enterprises want to lower costs. Full .NET framework, although excellent, has lot of costs around it - starting from Visual Studio for development (Enterprises cannot use Community edition) to Windows Server licensing for hosting. .NET Core makes development faster, cheaper and accessible to anyone. It is easier to convince bosses to go with .NET Core than with the full framework. With Visual Studio Code, development teams can install it in minutes compared to the full day they had to submit their laptop to IT team to get full Visual Studio installed. .NET Core is also highly performant and has been my choice for an IoT project that I have been executing with microservices running in a Docker container managed by Kubernetes! Unless I have a specific need, I preach the gospel of .NET Core.
