What is a NoSQL .NET database?

A NoSQL .NET (pronounced not “sequel” or not “ess que ell” dot net) database means the database is written in .NET, which is a no-cost, open-source cross platform for building different applications. .NET enables different languages, editors and libraries to build for mobile, web, games and the Internet of Things (IoT).

For example, .NET can be written in languages of C#, F# and visual basic. Whatever the chosen language, .NET will run natively on any compatible operating system. This enables many different types of apps to be built. .NET also has a set of base class libraries and APIs that are common to all .NET applications.

.NET is popular with software developers and was built by Microsoft for building many different types of applications.
