Volta technology preview

The Volta technology preview is a developer toolset which enables you to build multi-tier web applications by applying familiar techniques and patterns. You architect and build your application as a .NET client application, assigning the portions of the application that run on the server and the target client platform late in the development process. The compiler manages creating cross-browser JavaScript for web applications, web services for any server side code, and all of the communication, serialization and other boilerplate code to tie the tiers together.

Developers can target either web browsers or the CLR as clients and Volta handles the complexities of tier-splitting for you. Volta contains tools such as end-to-end profiling to make architectural refactoring and optimization simple and quick. In effect, Volta offers a best effort experience in multiple environments without any changes to the application.
