Since its release in 2001, .NET Framework has played a vital role in designing and deploying Windows applications and services, enabling developers to build robust applications with a vast library of ready-to-use classes, functions, and libraries. Among the various versions, .NET Framework 3.5, released in 2007, has been widely used due to its feature-rich capabilities.
However, the clock is ticking for .NET Framework 3.5. Microsoft has announced the end of support for this version in January 2029 (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/microsoft-net-framework). Once this date passes, no further security patches, updates, or technical support will be provided, leaving systems that depend on it exposed to potential security threats and unsupported in case of failures.
Several organizations are still running on this soon-to-be-outdated framework, with applications that control critical operations like financial management and procurement. Often, these legacy systems form the backbone of the business, with newer technologies being introduced around the periphery. This setup merely delays the inevitable – the need for a comprehensive technology upgrade.
