ASP.NET is the name of a broad set of web-focused techniques, markup syntaxes, and tools based on the Microsoft .NET framework and languages.
Because it is a very mature technology from the early 2000s, there is a formidable amount of legacy code in ASP.NET. A lot of that older code is not as performant or as scalable as desired and can have hacks, inconsistencies, and the overuse of dependent libraries and techniques. That complexity often calls for a developer with skill in simplifying and modernizing larger code bases, implementing more client-side behavior, and calling microservices.
When hiring for ASP.NET-based projects, it is important to include a list of connected systems, the status of development, and the direction of future development. The position might need someone who can rewrite the whole application in a more modern system—perhaps MVC/Razor, or another ecosystem entirely, like Angular. Or it might require someone to maintain and debug complex form validations. These two needs would require quite different skill sets, so it’s best to have clear intentions.
