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.

Popular architecture patterns

In this section, we will explore five popular architectural patterns. We will explain the core concept of each pattern, and then we will outline the key components of each architecture pattern. This should help you learn about the usefulness of architecture patterns and support you in choosing the right pattern for a proposed solution. Let's begin with a layered architecture.

Layered architecture

This type of architecture is widely known by most architects and developers as n-tier architecture. It is used to structure the system into different layers, where each layer consists of a set of classes grouped in one assembly based on a specific context. The layers are structured horizontally so that each layer can consume services from one layer or the many layers that are beneath it.

In most cases, this architecture consists of three main layers, as shown in the following diagram:
