Description

What is Node.js?

Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

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 Spring?

A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

.NET

Our focus is on mobile. I use .NET because most of my work involves Xamarin. We haven't had a need for .NET Core lately since Xamarin covers the iOS, Android bases. .NET Core seems best suited to larger organizations who need to port and migrate between Windows, Linux, and macOS. Seems incredibly useful, particularly the Windows/Linux crossover. But for us, Mono takes care of that already in Xamarin.

I use .NET because at our company we work always with the newest technologies and, because of we are 7 Microsoft MVPs, we love to use Microsoft Technologies. Since, .NET Core was public released we're developing every new solution with the latest version of this framework and we love it, its lightweight, fast, and allows us to combine it with the latest tendences in technology

I've used .NET for many years, but only in recent years, after Microsoft introduced .NET Core, I've found a new love and excitement for the technology again. The main driver for us using .NET Core is not that it is cross platform compatible, open source or blazingly fast (which it is!), but the fact that we can use (what we consider) the best programming languages (mainly F# and C#) to carry out our jobs without sacrificing the other benefits.

Today we run most of our web infrastructure on .NET Core in Docker containers, deployed into a Kubernetes cluster which spans across multiple time zones in the Google Cloud and we couldn't be happier. Due to the portability of the .NET Core platform we are even able to develop many new services as serverless functions with F# which has become an absolute game changer.
