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.

Best practices for disposing of objects in .NET Core

We have learned in the previous section that object disposal in .NET Core is automatically done by the GC. Nevertheless, disposing of objects in your code is always a good practice, and is highly recommended when you are working with unmanaged objects. In this section, we will explore some best practices that can be used to dispose of objects while writing code in .NET Core.

Introduction to the IDisposable interface

IDisposable is a simple interface that contains one Dispose method, takes no parameter, and returns void:

public interface IDisposable 
  void Dispose(); 

It is used to release unmanaged resources. So if any class implements the IDisposable interface, it...
