Freelancing as a .NET Developer

.NET is a software framework developed by Microsoft in 2002 and running primarily on Microsoft Windows. It is powerful, flexible, and can be adapted to a broad range of uses. A .NET developer is also proficient in VB.NET, Mono, or C#, and is responsible for handling many aspects of the application, including performance, scalability, security, and testing. A .NET developer can use the framework to build highly distributed web applications, sophisticated desktop applications, or even modern mobile applications.

Freelance .NET developers can earn a salary between $10-$105 per hour, on average. As the market evolves and demand for .NET jobs increases, the .NET contractor hourly rate is likely to increase as well. Difference in freelance .NET developer rates are calculated based on engagement types, such as part-time or full-time, and location, such as on-site or remote.
