In the current times, .NET is scattered as writing code that works across platforms requires portable class libraries i.e. PCL. PCL has a very limited functionality compared to the .NET framework. PCL basically offers shared functionality and the support for development is not great. This actually led to frustration among developers as if it was searching in a black hole. As developers would struggle to identify the API available for aspects of the development process.
As sources suggest from the Microsoft network, they are looking forward to replace the PCL functionality to optimize the .NET framework. They wish to offer a contract with common API support called the .NET standard library.
.NET Standard Library
This is one the best parts of the recent revamp of .NET technology. With the help of .NET Standard Library, developers will be able to reuse the code and save the development time to a great extent. Also, the learning curve will be easier and smaller. The developers will face less problems in terms of extending functionalities with .NET technology. Now, the .NET development experts have a stronger and clearer foundation to start building solutions with .NET technology.
C# for .NET development
Known as the most popular and supported language for development in .NET technology, web developers and .NET development specialists are indeed curious and excited to know what is coming their way. With this new.NET technology introduction, .NET is offering futuristic release cycle that is faster. It will enhance c# and avail developer with new way and methods of writing code with C# language.
Since .NET and C# technologies being introduced as open source technologies are the greatest news for web developers and software engineers. As it will simplify the development process to a great extent. It will be easier to track development stages and also ensures the future of these development platforms. As the changes are new, it may cause the initial turbulence, but once developer get a grip on it, it should fun developing with .NET Technology and C# language.
