Launched by Microsoft, ASP.NET is a popular web application framework that can be used for building interactive web applications, and now it’s available as open source.
An interesting fact is that with ASP.NET, developers can enjoy complete control over markup. This, in turn, allows them to create flexible and lightweight applications. ASP.NET also comes with several features that allow development of quick online services that stick to modern web standards.
Also, developers can flawlessly integrate these services with already existing platforms, such as PayPal, Google, Twitter, and Facebook. This, in turn, simplifies things. Another interesting fact is that combining ASP.NET technology with HTML5, it is possible to create mobile-friendly versions of existing websites.
