.NET is fast. Device applications for Windows, iOS and Android run natively so you can create rich and fluid apps that use all the device capabilities. On the server side, .NET Core is breaking records and performs faster than any other popular framework. That means applications provide better response times and require less compute power. .NET helps you develop high quality, professional applications faster. Modern language constructs like generics, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), or async support will make you productive in common application scenarios such as multi-threading or data. Combined with the extensive class libraries and the powerful tooling provided by the Visual Studio family, .NET is the most productive platform for developers. With .NET you can target any application type running on any platform, reusing your skills and code across all of them in a familiar environment. From mobile applications running on Windows, iOS and Android to Enterprise server applications running on Windows Server and Linux or high-scale microservices running in the cloud, .NET provides a solution for you. The .NET Framework helps you create mobile, desktop, and web applications that run on Windows PCs, devices and servers and it's included in Visual Studio. .NET Core and ASP.NET Core give you a blazing fast and modular platform for creating server applications that run on Windows, Linux and Mac.
