By: Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for realworld applications often involves activities geared toward fnding bottlenecks; however, this cannot solve the dreaded problem of slower code. If you want to improve the speed of your code and optimize an application's performance, then this book is for you. C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance begins with an introduction to the new features of what?explaining how they help in improving an application's performance. Learn to identify the bottlenecks in writing programs and highlight common performance pitfalls, and learn strategies to detect and resolve these issues early. You will explore multithreading and asynchronous programming with .NET Core and learn the importance and effcient use of data structures. This is followed with memory management techniques and design guidelines to increase an application’s performance. Gradually, the book will show you the importance of microservices architecture for building highly performant applications and implementing resiliency and security in .NET Core. After reading this book, you will learn how to structure and build scalable, optimized, and robust applications in C#7 and .NET.

What's New in .NET Core 2 and C# 7?

.NET Core is a development platform by Microsoft that runs cross-platform and is maintained by Microsoft and the community at GitHub. It is the most emergent and popular framework in development communities due to its performance and platform portability. It targets every developer that can develop any application for any platform that includes web, cloud, mobile, embedded, and IoT scenarios.

With .NET Core, we can develop applications using C#, F#, and now VB.NET as well. However, C# is the most widely used language among developers.

In this chapter, you will learn the following topics:

  • Performance improvements in .NET Core 2.0
  • Upgrading the path from .NET Core 1.x to 2.0
  • .NET Standard 2.0
  • What comes with ASP.NET Core 2.0
  • New features in C# 7.0
