Professional growth of Romanian offshore .NET developers

Romania has a strong .NET community. In Iasi, Bucharest, where the community has the most members, most .NET events take place. A number of conferences are held in Romania each year, such as DotNet Iasi, .NET Romania, and ApexVox's .NET conference. 

Ukraine, Poland, and Romania are the most popular locations for offshore .NET developers. What is the secret to their success? Let’s find out.


  1. C#, JavaScript and/or TypeScript
  2. ASP.NET model view controller (MVC) pattern
  3. Cloud expertise
  4. SP. NET, ASP NET Core framework
  5. Knowledge of databases
  6. React and/or Angular framework

Knowledge of JavaScript and/or TypeScript as well as C#

The .NET framework is primarily written in C#. JavaScript and typescript are used for front-end development. Additionally, knowing just one language (most commonly C#) isn't enough to become a competent .NET developer, especially if you plan on covering all aspects of the project.

ASP. NET, ASP.NET Core framework

ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core are required to build web applications. A framework like this can help develop web UIs and APIs, support Windows, macOS, and Linux, and offer lightweight, high-performance HTTP request pipelines, among other benefits. Developers can work more efficiently with frameworks like this.
For successful project delivery, ASP.NET developers offshore are essential.

Model view controller (MVC) pattern in ASP.NET

The ASP.NET MVC pattern can be used by .NET developers to build fast, secure web applications. It allows developers to separate the user interface (view) from the data (model) and to decouple the logic of the application (controller). Test-driven development is enabled by the separation of concerns. As a result, development becomes easier.

Knowledge of databases

A large amount of data storage is required when developing web applications. A .NET developer should therefore be able to work effectively with databases. Your offshore .NET developers should be familiar with relational and non-relational databases.

Structured relational databases have relationships (dependencies) between them. It is possible for a school's database to have separate tables for students and for classes.

In non-relational databases, all information is stored in a list format instead of in a relationship format, because they are document-oriented databases. Customers have their own records in this type of database, which contains information such as their names, addresses, order histories, and credit cards numbers. Despite the fact that the data comes in different formats, they can all be stored in the same document.

Cloud expertise

AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure are three major cloud services that experienced offshore .NET developers need to be familiar with in order to determine the best cloud for the job. Due to the fact that it's a Microsoft product, Azure expertise is vital when working with .NET development.

Additionally, offshore .NET developers should be familiar with cloud migration, as businesses often need it for flexibility, scalability, automation, and collaboration.

Frameworks like React and/or Angular

You should hire offshore .NET developers who are familiar with front-end frameworks like React and Angular.
The importance of certifications also cannot be overstated when it comes to .NET development. A .NET offshore developer must possess four major certifications. Below are the details.

Offshore .NET developers' skills

Azure infrastructure implementation and monitoring are measured by this certification. As well as demonstrating the developer's ability to implement management and security solutions, apps, and data platforms.

Azure Architect Design by Microsoft

Examine your knowledge of monitoring, security, data storage, business continuity, and .NET infrastructure.

Fundamentals of Microsoft Azure

Cloud concepts are covered in the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals exam. Azure, for example, is a cloud service provider that offers software, services, and tools related to general security, network security, identity management, governance, and compliance, as well as cost management and service level agreements.


Microsoft promotes .NET as an efficient technology. Updates and frameworks are attractive to .NET enthusiasts. .NET has five major advantages over other frameworks and languages. Here are some details.

Offshore .NET developers can reuse code more than once as .NET is a language-neutral framework.


.NET Core is cross-platform, so it can be used on Windows, OS X, and Linux. Therefore, cross-platform applications can be developed and ported across platforms.

Cloud development is easy

Microsoft Azure Cloud is the company's cloud computing platform. As a result, it is ideal for developing fast, scalable applications.
In addition, Docker containers can be integrated with .NET, making it possible to deploy lightweight cloud applications.


The .NET framework is equipped with a variety of security practices that can be applied to .NET-based solutions. For instance, the framework contains authentication and encryption classes for Windows.

Variety of tools

Thanks to the widespread use of the .NET framework, many tools have been developed that make work more efficient. With Blazor, you can write both the front-end and back-end of your application in C#, and Entity Framework simplifies database work.

Additionally, Microsoft offers integration and support for a number of services, including Biztalk, CRM, etc.


Lebara is one of Europe's fastest-growing mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), employing more than 62 nationalities in six countries. Since December 2014, Bitsorchestra has worked with Lebara. Our ability to meet your requirements is facilitated by creating a development center that combines development, quality assurance, business intelligence development, application support, database administration, as well as support for infrastructure and infrastructure management, all under one roof.

Lebara needed experts to handle a variety of software development tasks.

First, we moved from on-premises WCF and BizTalk to Azure. Utilizing a single master data system, we developed a platform that enables omnichannel communication. All Lebara customer communication channels are unified under the Omnichannel backend: website, mobile app, SMS, USSD (unstructured supplementary service data), and customer service.

Customers can purchase, register, activate, and top up SIM cards (data and SMS bundles), check a balance, and find answers to many frequently asked questions online. The business logic for integrating with payment providers, OCS, MNOs, and regulators is encapsulated in more than 80 microservices.

Afterward, we migrated from Azure Service Fabric to Azure Kubernetes Services, which also involved:

Logging on a single platform (was different everywhere: Azure storage accounts, OS files, ServiceFabric events, now - Azure Monitor with Log analytics).

Switching from Windows to Linux.

Migration from ASP.NET Web API 2 to .NET Core.

Migration of Cloud Services, Logic Apps, and Functions to Kubernetes using Kong (a cloud-agnostic solution) to monitor applications and infrastructure for Docker.

Code Worldwide

Code Worldwide helps clients invent the future of their marketing through technology and data. Here at BitsOrchestra we set up effective communication between services, and ensure their stability.
The solution architecture is flexible and complex. Data is stored and processed primarily through event sourcing. The platform stabilization work per release was reduced by 60 percent.

Parts of the application that are not tenant-specific are implemented with AWS Lambda and .NET Core 3.1. We were the first team to integrate serverless components into the platform, enabling continuous integration and continuous delivery.

As a result of the cooperation, the client achieved the following:

  • Reduction of 60 percent in time to market
  • A reduction of two weeks to three to four days has been achieved through
  • First Time Quality when setting up and testing a new tenant by enhancing CI/CD processes


In the UK and Australia, RateSetter has matched more than $3,6 billion in loans between thousands of active customers.

Producing new features was the main challenge when migrating to microservices.

The team decided to launch a new project that includes an update to the borrower journey's UI and logic while maintaining the current user application as a starting point. Microservices were created for the future. The data was first accessed through proxy services to avoid large data migrations. A total of ten of these services were created as part of this project. In addition, the entire development team was introduced to the basic template for the service and migration processes.

Our specialists migrated from the classic .NET Framework . 4.8 to Service Fabric for PaaS, which uses .NET Core. In the new architecture, all services can be deployed and updated independently, resulting in greater flexibility. The system now supports over 75 microservices.


Our company has been delivering secure and scalable .NET applications to clients around the world for over 17 years;

Many industries rely on our .NET services, including fintech, telecom, manufacturing, and energy management. In addition to Lebara, RateSetter, Opentext, TuneIn, and Orbus Software, we have developed .NET applications for these companies.

Our .NET team has been growing rapidly. We also have a strong .NET community that promotes the professional growth of our .NET experts at BitsOrchestra;

We deliver successful .NET applications using .NET, .NET Core, ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core, and Xamarin.
