    Same here. About a dozen projects since the "go live" license. Some in the over $2 million range.

    In your opinion, what features of .net 2.0 helped facilitat these improvement in development time?


    Generics and an improved IDE are my top two features.

    started last year during beta / go-live


    Generics, CLick Once, asp.net master pages, asp.net membership

    large client - system with CE.Net 4.1 hand helds running .Net CF 1.x
    servers and desktop pc's running 2.0

    sql 2005 and sql reporting services.

    web services letting the client pc's and handhelds send data back to the data center accross firewalls and such.

    6K to 8K orders a day x 6 days a week.

    plus other traffic like voids, updates, admin functions etc....

    40-60 handhelds , 40-60 pc's and a small number of admin staff on the web site (admin web)

    servers are Dell dual proc -- nothing super expensive.

    I can't go into much more detail due to legal agreements.

    will

    As far as apps go, I've only done work with the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 (done using CF 2 from scratch).

    Although, hoping to convert a fairly decent sized ASP.NET 1.0 app to 2.0 when time permits.

    I have, too. since beta2.

    I was a Java guy, not a .NET before. However, C#2.0 is somewhat beautiful and needs not long time to learn.

    Only within 2 month, ASP.NET and C#.NET is our (my?) major dev environment. This is a remarkable shift time.

    ASP.NET 2.0: Making general homepage and intranet also. over 20 pages.

    C#.NET: over 5 product.

    I work in a goverment research group.

    Since VS2005 is so powerful especially in Debugging feature, I addict to use 2.0 language which is tied strongly with VS2005.

    .NET 2.0 gives reliable and stable results which can run over 2 month without failure.

    I don't plan on upgrading any 1.1 apps to 2.0 yet because I do not see any major benefit. Any new apps however will be proposed to be in 2.0.

    Couldn't live without generics!!!

    We're a custom software/consulting firm, so it's been a variety of projects from things like engineering applications to law enforcement applications and even some for educational institutions. The 2mil one is a dozen person project for an insurance company.

    Agreed, those are two biggies. Master pages are a big help as well.

    And if you can swing it, and have the time to tailor it to fit your methodology, Team Foundation Server is a HUGE benefit as well!

    Another thing that's helped speed us along is using Service Factory.

    Yes, 2.0's generics are very nice, as well as the new Software Factories that jb mentions...

    Yep. Since beta 2!

    Even during beta 1 I was trying to create controls that opperated with the same functionality as 2.0 so I could easily make the transition from .NET 1.1 to 2.0 in my web apps. I honestly haven't heard much about .net 1.1 anymore since the Visual Studio 2005 environment is so awesome.
