When should you be looking for .NET developers?

When focusing on Windows

If you are targeting users of Windows with your app, the .NET framework should be the first one to consider. Being developed by Microsoft themselves, .NET gives you all the tools to create software that performs great on every Windows-based PC.

When building highly complicated software

The .NET environment is commonly used when developing more complex software, like business tools, video games, cloud apps, and AI. By implementing the framework, .NET developers can make your program perform better than when using other solutions.

When running operations on big data sets

Getting data to and from the user, storing data, establishing a complex data pipeline — all these things can be done fast and in a secure way by .NET developers. If numbers are important at your company, .NET is the perfect way to handle them.

When in need of a scalable solution

A product based on .NET can run great no matter the scope of the project. The framework can be introduced in the early days of a company and keep being used as the business steadily grows.

Ideamotive's guide to hiring a .NET developer — what do you need to remember?

With so many different technologies used for web development, it may be sometimes really difficult to make up your decision and finally choose one. What’s more, some of these technologies are better for the back-end of the website, while others are mainly used for the front-end, the part of the site or app the user actually sees. This means that, ultimately, you need to adopt multiple different technologies for various functionalities of your app.

Microsoft’s .NET framework (often referred to also as “dot net”) is an environment that helps make it all simpler and kept in one place. While .NET developers work on multiple different types of projects, from desktop tools for Windows to AAA video games to artificial intelligence software, some of them focus on working with ASP.NET — the .NET family framework dedicated to building beautiful, dynamic websites, web apps, and web services.

With ASP.NET, dot net developers can work on both the front-end and the back-end of your web product within one environment, while still using all the technologies that meet your requirements best. This is because the framework supports multiple programming languages used for web development, such as JavaScript, VB.NET, C#, C++, and Java.

What do web .NET developers actually do? A .NET developer job description

ASP.NET developers work both to develop the initial web product (be it a website, web app, or another kind of web service) as well as to later maintain it. Their job is, ultimately, to keep the product as bug-free as possible for both the users (clients) and your company employees who will work with the product.

As in the case of any other web solution, dot net developers are most commonly divided into those working on the front-end (what the client sees) and the back-end (database, servers) of a web app. Of course, looking for the so-called full-stack developer is also a popular option when hiring .NET developers. They are able to handle both the front-end and the back-end, allowing you to significantly cut costs.

Demand for dot net developers working as full-stack devs is high, but they are not always your best option. Of course, when just launching your startup, a good full-stack dev who can handle all the basics is a fine choice. However, as you scale, incorporating separate front-end and back-end teams (sometimes supported, indeed, by a full-stack developer who can adjust and work on what’s currently needed) is a must.

What hard, technical skills should a good .NET developer have?

Whether you are looking to hire a .NET developer for back-end, front-end, or full-stack, the palette of technical skills needed will be relatively similar. The most important hard skills to look for in a .NET developer are:

  1. Familiarity with the .NET environment

    There is a huge number of web developers for hire, but only some of them already have experience with dot net. Look for those who already have experience in working with the framework at an actual company, with a special focus on ASP.NET Core (the most recent member of the ASP.NET family).

  2. Knowledge of at least one .NET-preferred language

    This includes C# (most often recommended and most common among .NET developers), Visual Basic (VB.NET), and F#.

  3. Experience with both front-end and back-end

    Even if you have planned separate teams for both back-end and front-end sides of your web app, your developers should have experience in both of them to make sure they can work together and understand each other well. For example, even if you are hiring a back-end .NET developer, they should still know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, along with popular front-end frameworks/libraries (e.g. Bootstrap).

  4. Experience with database administration

    Databases are the key to connect your clients/users with what your company has to offer. Your back-end .NET developer should, therefore, be able to work with Microsoft SQL solutions, as well as be aware of the other options (e.g. NoSQL).

A good indicator of whether your new .NET developer hire is a skilled professional is the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) certificate. If a candidate is in possession of this certificate, they are most probably an expert that can be trusted.

What soft skills should you look for when hiring .NET developers?

Working in a team of .NET developers means working with others closely. Web and software development is all about brainstorming, exchanging ideas, and reaching out to others when an unusual issue arises.

Because of this need of teamwork, there are some specific soft skills you should look for when you hire .NET developers.

  1. Deadline-awareness

    Teamwork means that everyone shares responsibility for the product. Sometimes, when one developer fails to deliver, all the other ones cannot proceed further or at least are slowed down. That’s why it’s important to make sure your new .NET developer understands the value of deadline. But the responsibility is also on you — make sure you always discuss deadlines with your team and agree on a realistic one.

  2. Balance between the new and the old

    In web and software development, trends can change quickly. It’s important that your developer follows them (to always be ready to propose new, revolutionary solutions), but is also cautious and doesn’t immediately jump onto the hype train, being able to work with the older, but sometimes steadier options.

  3. Being able to understand the client

    Every good .NET developer should be able to put themselves in the position of a non-developer. What does the client want, how would they use the software, what can be a potential issue for them in the product we currently have? These questions should be considered in every stage of product development.

How to pick a right .NET developer to your project? — best .NET developer interview questions to ask

After you are done with assessing whether your dot net developer candidate fits your company and the project you have planned, the technical interview part of the process starts. There are different schools of running this kind of interview: some ask the candidate multiple questions combining theory and practical information, some focus on assessing the developer’s abilities by sending them one or two exercises to be completed, and others combine these two.

However this will look in your case, one thing is sure — a proper technical interview must be run by an experienced .NET professional who will rather surprise the candidate than become surprised themselves. If you are not a techie yourself, you might need to ask a .NET developer (be it one of your company members, a friend or colleague, or a hired consultant) or an IT Project Manager to help you out.

To give you an idea of what to expect, here is our list of top 10 .NET developer job interview questions:

  1. What’s the difference between managed and unmanaged code?
  2. What’s dependency injection?
  3. What are CLR locks? In what situations would you use them?
  4. What’s polymorphism in object-oriented programming?
  5. What are MVC and MVVM and what are the differences between them? Why do .NET developers use them?
  6. What’s LINQ and what’s LINQ to SQL?
  7. What are some design patterns you worked with?
  8. What are some ways of enhancing the security of a .NET web app?
  9. Stack vs Heap — what are the differences between these two?
  10. What is a delegate in .NET?

Winning the market with a team of experts

Great developers are surely one of the most important pillars of a dot net project — but you shouldn’t forget about other crucial IT experts. Even the most technically sophisticated product might end up being a market failure if it’s not managed by an experienced project manager or product owner. Designers are needed alike, as their aim is to make sure your software is easily understandable even by those who aren’t that tech-savvy. And what if you want to analyze your customers’ behavior well to fully understand their needs? Then you will also need some great data engineers in your team.
