Subject: Microsoft .NET
Speaker: Amitabh Iyer, Associate Vice President Technology Competence Centre, InfraSoft Tech (London)
Venue: The Blue Room, Highlands College
Amitabh outlined some of the main points where .Net had advantages over other development environments and presented a number of views based on case studies from his personal experience of using .NET from a software developer’s perspective (as opposed to a Marketing person’s view).
The talk provided an insight into some of the underlying architecture of .NET and how the product could be successfully used to develop and extend large business systems in financial institutions. Amitabh also highlighted areas where a .NET solution may not be suitable and other development tools, such as Java, may be more appropriate to meet an organisations needs.
