Cons
The user interface could be improved to be more friendly for developers.When you have several tasks, you open a screen in a task in developing mode, and you don't see the parent screens. Debugging lacks the effects to solve problems. You have to do it first in a kind of studio. Then you have to be sure that you can do it in Magic because there is almost nothing to debug it. It's practically impossible to debug. You have to be sure before you put your snippets.

I would like to see more pre-built features in the MVC framework because as it is now, it's very open and you have to develop your own controls in order to use it.Lacking in auto-scaling.The .NET open source community could be larger.The pricing is a bit expensive.In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients.If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful.They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers.This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.
