The lightweight ASP.NET Core MVC framework, immediately after its release, had a big impact on the software development industry. The framework is optimized for ASP.NET Core making it a very handy tool when it comes to the development of dynamic, new generation web applications.

Touted as one of the most widely used of all Microsoft technologies alongside Azure, ASP.NET is the source of some of the greatest websites present on the internet. With ASP.NET Core MVC, the potential of the technology only grows.

In this blog, we will be exploring some of the most essential features of the ASP.NET Core MVC which makes it an ideal choice for developing modern web applications.

Model Binding

The Model Binding feature of the framework converts client request data into objects that are in turn controlled by the Controller.

Model Validation

In addition to Model Binding, the ASP.NET Core MVC framework also aids with the model validation process. The framework can decorate model object by using data annotation validation attributes. Before the values are posted on to the server, the backend checks the validation attributes.


The MVC framework was developed at the top of ASP.NET Core’s routing, which turned out to be a great feature of the framework. In a nutshell, the routing feature is a URL-based mapping component that aids with the development of URLs that can be both searched and understood. This feature allows defining a URL’s naming pattern so that it’s SEO friendly and complements link generation.

Dependency Injection

In technical terms, this feature is what enables the controllers of the framework to follow the Explicit Dependencies Principle once the controllers request the needed services with the help of constructors.


The framework also comes with ‘Filters’ that can compress issues such as authorization and exception handling. Filters can also be useful to run pre as well as post customized processing logic for action methods. In addition, filters can also act as attributes when implemented to controllers.


This feature helps in dividing large ASP.NET MVC app into smaller groupings that are functional. The area can be defined, within the application, as an MVC structure.

All of these features and a number of others collectively grant an array of benefits not only to product owners but also to developers as well.

  • With ASP.NET Core MVC framework, developers can easily build robust cross-platform applications for popular operating systems such as Windows, macOS and Linux.
  • The aforementioned features also maintain modularity thus simplifying coding.
  • The framework’s architecture itself allows developers to build cloud-ready applications that can be deployed on the cloud without issues.

By offering a series of advantages, ASP.NET Core MVC is all set to transform the ASP.NET Development Services sector once more while retaining its ranks among the greatest application development technologies the world has ever known. Thanks to Microsoft’s consistent efforts to keep improving ASP.NET Core, this technology is not going to be outdated any time soon.

A few years ago, the concept of the Internet of Things was seen as some weird concept from a sci-fi flick. But things changed. Though IoT is still in its infancy, it garnered a lot of attention lately and is now seen as a revolutionary technology that will transform and disrupt various industries. There’s great interest in building IoT devices and IoT software development today.

As a matter of fact, many organizations are competing to make various components available in the market in order to promote the already trending development of IoT solutions. However, some of those platforms ran out of steam.

Among those platforms that came complemented IoT is .NET – one of the most popular microsoft technologies. Corporate behemoths like Amazon, Accenture, Dell etc. has been leveraging .NET for years due to its versatility and impressive performance. Coincidentally, these two traits are what IoT app development demands today.

That said, let’s explore the merits of using .NET for IoT projects.

Windows 10 IoT Core compatibility

Windows 10 IoT Core is a free, optimized version of the popular Windows 10 OS from Microsoft, designed to work with low-power devices such as Dragonboard 410c, Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 etc. The OS features an impressive toolkit and a plethora of integration options.

But the icing on the cake is that .NET is fully compatible with Windows 10 IoT Core. Combining both these contributions from Microsoft enables developers to build great IoT apps with a decent UX.

The rich toolset of ASP.NET Core

A popular, widely-used open-source web framework, ASP.NET Core allows developers to create visually appealing web applications including IoT apps. Combined with the Windows 10 IoT Core, one can also use ASP.NET Core to build services that can run on the background of IoT devices.

The highlight however is ASP.NET Core’s toolset. The framework supports a number of popular programming languages like Visual Basic, C# etc. and facilitates faster deployment, excellent performance, and easier cloud integration. With ASP.NET Core, the devs are also free to choose the cloud platform for their applications – be it AWS, Google Cloud IoT, or Microsoft Azure. It’s no wonder why the ASP.NET development services industry is still one of the fastest growing tech industries in the world.

Ready-made solutions

.NET encourages developers to use its ready-made solutions to save time. But this also has another advantage. When using .NET’s ready-made solutions, the developers are less likely to encounter a coding issue that hasn’t been rectified or resolved by the community.

If the devs use ready-made .NET solutions for IoT and comes across some obstacle, chances are someone already encountered and resolved it and was generous enough to publish the code on GitHub. The reusable code generated by the .NET community can speed up IoT app development considerably.

Supportive community

The best thing developers can have is a supportive community backing a technology they are extensively working with. .NET has such a community. Thousands of experienced developers in the community can help thousands of amateur developers trying to figure out IoT development. They normally hang out on GitHub and StackOverflow publishing unique pre-written code pieces and relieving amateur developers of their coding headaches.


.NET has been around for a while and consistently retains its position in the market countering advancements from potential replacements. In fact, it’s only become more popular with its rich toolset, open source persona, and strong community support. All of these traits combined makes IoT app development a fun activity with .NET.
