Discussion on: ASP .net vs Laravel

I agree with @rhymes - it's mostly the difference between PHP and C#.

PHP apps are easier to deploy to production environments, however.

But .NET apps typically are easier to debug and find bugs with - since you can compile it first.

.NET historically has been considered more robust in terms of security since everything you need is built-into the framework and since it's backed by Microsoft there's this implicit sense of trust.

That being said, Laravel is top-notch quality anyways...

I think the real difference is if you are building high-performant distributed systems (think microservices, etc.) then you want to go with .NET Core.

Otherwise, honestly... for someone starting out - I'd probably just go with Laravel 😋
