What is .NET?
.NET Framework - a software package, which is aimed to develop programs and applications. The main feature of this package is that different services and programs written in different programming languages can be compatible.
The platform consists of two parts. The basis is the Common Language Runtime (CLR), which can run both normal programs and server applications. The second, no less important part is the Class Library (FCL) class library, which contains many components for working with databases, network, files, user interface, etc. This allows the developer not to work in low-level programming, but to use ready-made classes.
