In Defense of ASP.NET and Server-side Web

Speaker's Biography

After 20+ books (mostly with Microsoft Press) that educated two generations of developers, 1000+ articles, hundreds of conference talks and 10000+ hours of training, Dino returned to software development and architecture. After two years of in energy, within his role as CTO of Crionet, Dino now leads the IT team that runs everyday, worldwide operations for professional tennis and padel. His latest publishing works are 'Enterprise ASP.NET Blazor Applications' course on Pluralsight and 'Clean Architecture with .NET' for Microsoft Press. Dino shares sharp and often counterstream thoughts on LinkedIn and pragmaticopinions.wordpress.com.

Talk Abstract

At some point, ASP.NET was seen as a legacy of the Microsoft-centric past that the software industry wanted to forget. It underwent a significant transformation into ASP.NET Core but is now primarily regarded for building Web APIs. In this talk, I'll discuss current web frontend trends, compare them to ASP.NET and Blazor, and provide an objective comparison between ASP.NET Core and Node.js for server environments. Throughout web development history, there's been a continuous shift between client-centric and server-centric approaches, and ASP.NET can thrive in both.
