As the ASP.NET scene is getting more involved in all the talk about HTML5, I’ve discovered that I have become a second class citizen in the world of .NET.
As a developer in a small firm, I don’t have access to the latest and greatest tools or the room to implement new technologies. We still build our webapps with ASP.NET Web Forms, VB.NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008. In the meantime, Microsoft have come along with many new innovations and tools I’ve had to miss out on: .NET 4.0, Visual Studio 2010, ASP.NET MVC, NuGet, ASP.NET Websites with Razor. These tools are all great and “nice to have” but a little more difficult to integrate into our current environment. One thing I really do miss though is support for HTML 5.
