Overview of this book

ASP.NET Core is the new, open source, and cross-platform, web-application framework from Microsoft. ASP.NET Core MVC helps you build robust web applications using the Model-View-Controller design. This guide will help you in building applications that can be deployed on non-Windows platforms such as Linux. Starting with an overview of the MVC pattern, you will quickly dive into the aspects that you need to know to get started with ASP.NET. You will learn about the core architecture of model, view, and control. Integrating your application with Bootstrap, validating user input, interacting with databases, and deploying your application are some of the things that you will learn to execute with this fast-paced guide. You will test your knowledge as you build a fully working sample application using the skills you’ve learned throughout the book. Moving forward, this guide will teach you to combine the impressive capabilities of ASP.NET Core and Angular 2. Not only will you learn how Angular 2 can complement your .NET skills and toolkit, you'll also learn everything you need to build a complete, dynamic single-page application. Find out how to get your data model in place and manage an API, before styling and designing your frontend for an exceptional user experience. You will find out how to optimize your application for SEO, identify and secure vulnerabilities, and how to successfully deploy and maintain your application. From here, you will delve into the latest frameworks and software design patterns to improve your application performance. The course offers premium, highly practical content on the recently released ASP.NET Core, and includes material from the following Packt books: Learning ASP.NET Core MVC Programming, ASP.NET Core and Angular 2, and ASP.NET Core 1.0 High Performance.

Chapter 6.  Understanding Code Execution and Asynchronous Operations

This chapter covers solving performance problems in the execution of your code, which is not normally the first location that speed issues occur, but can be a good additional optimization. We'll discuss the areas where performance is needed, and where it is okay (or even required) to be slow. The merits of various data structures will be compared from the standard built-in generic collections to the more exotic. We will demonstrate how to compute operations in parallel, and how to take advantage of extra instruction sets that your CPU may provide. We'll dive into the internals of ASP.NET Core and .NET Core to highlight the improvements that you should be aware of.

The topics covered in this chapter include the following:

  • .NET Core and the native tool chain
  • Common Language Runtime (CLR) services such as GC, JIT, and NGen
  • ASP.NET Core and the Kestrel web server
  • Generic collections and Bloom filters
  • Serialization...
