.NET Developer Comfort Zone

Posted on Mon 17 March 2014 in developer


I’m a .NET developer and to be specific I’m a web developer who use .NET framework and .NET stack to create web application (Web App), and nowadays I’m learning ASP.NET MVC to move from WebForms world to MVC world, but in future I’m planning to get out of my comfort zone again and get out of .NET world and try the open source software (OSS) world, I’ve attended many sessions for GDG Kuwait which is Google Developers Group located in Kuwait and the only developer group in here with .NET/C# experience and it’s full of enthusiasm developers.

When I will take this leap/paradigm shift I will take it for real, let me explain what I mean by that. What I’m planning is learning Ruby on Rails, maybe you want to learn Django or Node.js but when you will, please don’t try to stick to Microsoft world, don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone, please don’t use Node.js tools for Visual Studio, or Python tools for Visual Studio, or Ruby In Steel Developer these Frameworks works great with Linux operating systems so learn how to use Linux operating system like Ubuntu, then how to install/prepare the environment, and then how to use tools to start develop and learn the framework, get out there you will not learn these frameworks by using Visual Studio.
