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.

Multithreading and Asynchronous Programming in .NET Core

Multithreading and asynchronous programming are two essential techniques that facilitate the development of highly scalable and performant applications. If the application is not responsive, it affects the user experience and increases the level of dissatisfaction. On the other hand, it also increases the resource usage on the server side, or where the application is running, and also increases the memory size and/or CPU usage. Nowadays, hardware is very cheap, and every machine comes with multiple CPU cores. Implementing multithreading and using asynchronous programming techniques not only increases the performance of the application, but also makes the application more responsive in nature.

This chapter examines the core concepts of multithreading and the asynchronous programming model to help you use them in your projects...
