Microsoft .NET Framework


The Microsoft .NET Framework is a toolset or ‘platform’ that developers use to build software applications. It is like a toolbox that developers use to put together programs.

Within this .NET Framework toolbox, there are several essential tools. One of them is called the Common Language Runtime (CLR), the engine that runs the programs built with .NET.

Then there’s the Base Class Library (BCL), a large set of pre-made components that developers can use so they don’t have to build everything from scratch.

The toolbox also includes unique sets of tools for creating different types of applications, like web applications or desktop applications.
