Is MS Volta a new VB for Web-Developers?

Web Development Using Only the Materials in the Room…

Long history of Visual Basic gave a huge force of man power for simplified development for DOS and then Windows. And Microsoft was looking for years to have something similar in the Web-development domain.

Everyone would agree that web-development today requires long hours of self education and constant follow up with many introduced almost every day technologies, libraries and languages – PHP, ASP, C#, Perl, Ruby…

Microsoft is saying those days are over (didn’t they said about APS while back?) – answer is Volta.
For now it is still in beta, but…

The Volta technology preview is a developer toolset that enables you to build multi-tier web applications by applying familiar techniques and patterns. First, design and build your application as a .NET client application, then assign the portions of the application to run on the server and the client tiers late in the development process. The compiler creates cross-browser JavaScript for the client tier, web services for the server tier, and communication, serialization, synchronization, security, and other boilerplate code to tie the tiers together.

Developers can target either web browsers or the CLR as clients and Volta handles the complexities of tier-splitting for you.  Volta comprises tools such as end-to-end profiling to make architectural refactoring and optimization simple and quick. In effect, Volta offers a best-effort experience in multiple environments without any changes to the application.

    From a junior developer through Sr Manager position, I was always interested in new technologies. Passionate speaker, IT junky, developer, architect, team lead, and development manager - many hats, one goal - making software better and being closer to people’s needs. For the most part I am using my blog as a scratch pad, writing small articles on things which I came across, was asked about more then once, and which would otherwise require additional research again and again.
