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.

Introducing the architectural patterns

An architectural pattern is a reusable solution architecture to a common problem that we might face in different business industries and on various occasions. It offers predefined guidelines along with a set of rules to establish the underlying structure of the solution.

It is important not to mix up the .NET design patterns and the architectural patterns. The first one represents a way in which to organize classes to make your source code more reliable, scalable, and easy to maintain, which will solve various problems that are internal to a specific component or module in our system. In comparison, the second one has a broader scope within the entire solution as it defines the high-level abstract structure of the solution. As a solution architect, you must possess knowledge of both types of patterns:

  • Design Patterns develop classes with object-oriented principles.
  • Architectural Patterns help to define and maintain the overall structure...
