C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 Blueprints

By: Dirk Strauss, Jas Rademeyer

Overview of this book

.NET Core is a general purpose, modular, cross-platform, and open source implementation of .NET. With the latest release of .NET Core, many more APIs are expected to show up, which will make APIs consistent across .Net Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. This step-by-step guide will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The book starts with a brief introduction to the latest features of C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 before moving on to explain how C# 7 can be implemented using the object-oriented paradigm. You'll learn to work with relational data using Entity Framework and see how to use ASP.NET Core practically. This book will show you how .NET Core allows the creations of cross-platform applications. You'll also learn about SignalR to add real-time functionality to your application. Then you will see how to use MongoDB and how to implement MongoDB into your applications. You'll learn about serverless computing and OAuth concepts, along with running ASP.NET Core applications with Docker Compose. This project-based guide uses practical applications to demonstrate these concepts. By the end of the book, you'll be proficient in developing applications using .NET Core 2.0.

While the principles of SOLID programming are great guidelines to follow, very few systems that you come across will actually implement them throughout the application. This is especially true if you inherit a system and that system has been in production for a number of years.

I will admit that I have come across applications designed with SOLID in mind. These were really easy to work on and the bar is set high for other developers in a team to maintain the same level of code quality.

Peer code reviews and a thorough understanding of SOLID principles by every developer on the team ensure that the same level of code is maintained.

This chapter has had a lot going on. Apart from laying the foundation for a really nice Cricket Score Tracking app, we have had a look at what OOP really means.

We had a look at abstraction and the difference between abstraction and encapsulation. We discussed polymorphism, and we looked at what run-time polymorphism is versus compile-time polymorphism. We...
