C# 7 and .NET: Designing Modern Cross-platform Applications

By: Mark J. Price, Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Overview of this book

C# is a widely used programming language, thanks to its easy learning curve, versatility, and support for modern paradigms. The language is used to create desktop apps, background services, web apps, and mobile apps. .NET Core is open source and compatible with Mac OS and Linux. There is no limit to what you can achieve with C# and .NET Core. This Learning Path begins with the basics of C# and object-oriented programming (OOP) and explores features of C#, such as tuples, pattern matching, and out variables. You will understand.NET Standard 2.0 class libraries and ASP.NET Core 2.0, and create professional websites, services, and applications. You will become familiar with mobile app development using Xamarin.Forms and learn to develop high-performing applications by writing optimized code with various profiling techniques. By the end of C# 7 and .NET: Designing Modern Cross-platform Applications, you will have all the knowledge required to build modern, cross-platform apps using C# and .NET. This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products: • C# 7.1 and .NET Core 2.0 - Modern Cross-Platform Development - Third Edition by Mark J. Price • C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance by Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Microservices architecture

Microservices architecture is an architectural style in which the application is loosely coupled; it is divided into components based on business capability or domain, and scales independently without affecting other services or components of the application. This contrasts with the monolithic architecture, where a full application is deployed on a server or a Virtual Machine (VM) and scaling out is not a cost-effective or easy solution. For each scale-out operation, a new VM instance has to be cloned and the application needs to be deployed.

The following diagram shows the architecture of a monolithic application, where most of the functionality is isolated within a single process and scaling out to multiple servers requires the full deployment of the application on the other server:

The following is a representation of microservices architecture, which separates an application into smaller services and, based on the workload, scales independently:
