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.

Designing Guidelines for .NET Core Application Performance


In this chapter, we have learned about the core fundamentals of multithreaded and asynchronous programming. The chapter starts with the basic differences between both and walks you through some core concepts about multithreading, what APIs there are available, and how to write multithreading applications. We also looked at how the task-programming library can be used to serve asynchronous operations and how to implement the task asynchronous pattern. Finally, we explored parallel programming techniques and some of the best design patterns that are used for these techniques.

In the next chapter, we will explore the types of data structures and their impact on performance, how to write optimized code, and some best practices.
