.NET is a framework developed by Microsoft that enables developers to produce software, whether it be application development or creating software from scratch. This framework not only supports the development of applications and XML services but the ongoing maintenance of them too.

At Blacklight Software, we are .NET development experts - we have extensive experience using .NET, and use it to build applications that run on multiple platforms, for clients in all kinds of industries.

For example, .NET can be used to design, develop and build a mobile app - our developers can utilise its range of code libraries, APIs and compilers to create the ultimate custom application for you or your business.

As .NET is a complicated framework, it requires skilled programmers and developers to produce solutions. In fact, Microsoft uses .NET themselves on their own software. At Blacklight Software, we use code optimisation tools to ensure that every single piece of custom code is optimised for ultimate performance.

Benefits of .NET Core

There are many reasons that we utilise .NET core to bring you bespoke software solutions. Read on to learn more about the benefits of .NET core, from its flexibility to its cross-platform design.


.NET is Flexible

One of the key benefits of .NET Core is that it’s so flexible. The modular design of the framework allows developers such as ourselves to use all the dependencies we need. As well as being installed as part of the application being developed, or separately, .NET Core is as flexible as you need it to be.

Whether you plan on migrating to a new platform or scaling up your team, our .NET engineers have extensive experience working with a variety of .NET implementations - and can provide you with what you need quickly and efficiently with utmost flexibility. By using .NET, we have the flexibility to cover a range of projects.


.NET is Object Oriented

.NET is based on the OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) Module - a development model that breaks down software into manageable aspects. Essentially, this compartmentalizes data, making code manageable. Likewise, this means that developers can respond quickly to issues, and test software with ease.

Using .NET also means that developers don’t have to use as much coding. It enables developers to reuse code and other compartments, saving time and lowering the overall cost.
