Solution Architecture with .NET

By: Jamil Hallal

Overview of this book

Understanding solution architecture is a must to build and integrate robust systems to meet your client’s needs. This makes it crucial for a professional .NET software engineer to learn the key skills of a .NET solution architect to create a unique digital journey and build solutions for a wide range of industries, from strategy and design to implementation. With this handbook, developers working with the .NET technology will be able to put their knowledge to work. The book takes a hands-on approach to help you become an effective solution architect. You’ll start by learning the principles of the software development life cycle (SDLC), the roles and responsibilities of a .NET solution architect, and what makes a great .NET solution architect. As you make progress through the chapters, you’ll understand the principles of solution architecture and how to design a solution, and explore designing layers and microservices. You'll complete your learning journey by uncovering modern design patterns and techniques for designing and building digital solutions. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to architect your modern web solutions with ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Azure and be ready to automate your development life cycle with Azure DevOps.

Exploring CI/CD with Azure pipelines

Continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment (or CI/CD) are the main pillars of building, testing, and deploying robust applications using modern software development techniques in DevOps. These practices allow us to release new features and fixes quickly through automated processes. Let's get to know each of these practices.

Continuous integration (CI) is the nucleus practice in DevOps. It allows us to frequently integrate all source code modifications coming from multiple developers into the main repository. It is an automated process that can be configured in Azure DevOps. When this capability is enabled, every time a developer commits their code, the CI will be verified by starting an automated build process to verify that the project contains no build errors. After that, an automated testing process is triggered to confirm that the newly committed code is stable. This approach is very helpful for identifying...
