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.

Choosing the right patterns

In the previous sections, we learned about major architectural patterns. However, you must have noticed that there are a few patterns that we didn't discuss in this chapter. In fact, some patterns will be introduced in the future. So, you will need a way in which to analyze a pattern and decide whether you want to choose it or not. One question that you could be asked is how do we choose the right pattern for our solution? Let's dig deep into this matter.

Architecture design is the cornerstone of a solid and successful system. However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to choosing the right architecture for your solution. Various perspectives should be taken into account when you want to decide which architecture pattern to use.

Put simply, the main selection criterion for choosing an architecture pattern is based on three factors:

  • Software engineers (who will work on the project): Software engineers should be familiar...
