C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance

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.

.NET Core internals

.NET Core contains two core components—the runtime CoreCLR and the base-class libraries CoreFX. In this section, we will cover the following topics:

  • CoreFX
  • CoreCLR
  • Understanding MSIL, CLI, CTS, and CLS
  • How CLR works
  • From compilation to execution—under the hood
  • Garbage collection
  • .NET Native and JIT compilation


CoreFX is the code name of .NET Core's set of libraries. It contains all the libraries that start with Microsoft.* or System.*and contains collections, I/O, string manipulation, reflection, security, and many more features.

The CoreFX is runtime agnostic, and it can run on any platform regardless of what APIs it supports.
