Advice on .NET as a job

Posted 30 March 2017 - 03:33 PM

Hi everyone :)

I am currently trying to get a study approved but they are offering me a course instead, 3 months learning .NET and then starting a job.

I do have experience in IT but my experience with programming is limited to some goofy stuff on my graphic calculator, my wordpress website and Arduino...

What can you tell me about what makes .NET framework (as apparently becoming a specialist on it of sorts) interesting, challenging or just bad even?

I mean: not every programming language has the same reputation... - although I realize .NET is not a language afaik

Thanks in advance!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Personally, I am astonished that you are being offered a job, when you don't know what.NET is.

Well it would be a traineeship, I do have the background in IT and let's just say other things speaking for my potentials.

Do you know much about it and what could you tell me about it? I mean you don't have to get super technical but just what is it like - or is the answer just: fine like many other frameworks or other aspects of programming, with a few exceptions, and not to overthink this...

lmk, thanks for your response :)

In general, it is the Microsoft framework. MSDN is one of the best places to look for info on and about it.

Thank you, I will look into that. :)

I was looking for your opinion though, as well as checking up myself on what it is.

Sorry if the question seems absurd, but if you'd try I'd be grateful.
