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

Choosing the right data structure for performance optimization

A data structure is a precise way of organizing data in a computer program. If data is not efficiently stored in the right data structure, it may lead to some performance issues that impact the overall experience of the application.

In this section, we will learn the advantages and disadvantages of the different collection types available in .NET Core and which ones are the better types for particular scenarios:

  • Arrays and lists
  • Stacks and queues
  • LinkedLists (single, double, and circular)
  • Dictionaries, hashtables, and hashsets
  • Generic lists


An array is a collection that holds similar types of elements. Arrays of both value types and reference types can...
