It is often challenging to find a good .NET developer. Though technical knowledge is a must, some other qualities are also essential for a good .NET developer. Generally, a good .NET developer is:

Technically sound

A sound foundation in .NET framework and any technology on top of it is a prerequisite of a good .NET developer. He must have good command on C# or VB.NET. For web technologies, he should have knowledge on ASP.Net, JavaScript or Angular JS or other scripting languages, MVC and for windows desktop applications he should have knowledge of WPF and MVVM techniques.


Experience is a very important quality of a good .NET developer. 3-4 years of experience can be considered as a standard experience. An experienced .NET developer is in a better position to deal with any complex situation as well as a newly emerged problem.

Adept in immediate response

.NET developer should be able to quickly respond to the changes and modifications of the application. It will save both time and money.

Adept in refactoring code

Ability to refactor code is very important. Sometimes a developer needs to start working on an existing application where the code quality may not be good. To improve the code quality, he should be able to restructure the code without changing the external behavior.

Adept in using existing code:

A good developer does not write new codes all the time. He is adept in finding codes which are already available in different sources and use them.

Capable of testing

A good .Net developer can test the essential part of the code. He can detect the bugs and eliminate them. At the same time, He knows well what to test. He tests only the essential part and does not waste time testing unnecessary codes.


Trustworthiness is a quality of a good developer. A good developer maintains the confidentiality of idea and code. To check trustworthiness, you can talk to the previous clients. It is recommended to hire a developer from a firm than freelance outsourcing teams. Because firms are bound to abide by confidentiality agreement like – Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA), IP documentation. Developers are bound to conform with firm’s agreement. If anything goes wrong, you will be able to identify and take necessary actions.
