Consider also the top 8 of technologies and frameworks most appropriate for .Net programming.

  1. ASP.NET MVC

This open-source web software framework implements the MVC (model view controller) pattern which helps to create apps separating their different aspects like input logic, UI logic and business logic while providing some loose coupling between the elements.

  1. ASP.NET Web API

This framework makes it easier to create HTTP services with a broad reach of clients, including mobile devices and browsers. It makes a perfect platform for building .NET-based RESTful applications.

  1. ASP.NET SignalR

This new ASP.NET library for developers makes real-time web-based functionality development easy. It allows a bi-directional communication of server and client which ensures now servers can instantly push content to the connected clients. SignalR has Web Sockets support and also provides support for some compatible older browsers’ techniques. It includes connection management, authorization and grouping connections APIs.

  1. Entity Framework

This object-relational mapper enables a .Net development company to handle relational data via domain-specific objects. The framework eliminates the necessity for most data-access code developers usually have to write.

  1. Knockout

This standalone technology represents a MVVM-pattern JavaScript implementation with templates.

  1. AngularJS

This open-source JavaScript-powered framework is maintained by Google and helps to run single-page apps. Its aims to augment browser applications with MVC capability as well as strives to make either development or testing easier.

  1. jQuery

  1. Underscore.js
