Design scalable and high-performance enterprise applications using the latest features of C# 9 and .NET 5.
- Gain fundamental and comprehensive software architecture knowledge and the skillset to create fully modular apps.
- Design high-performance software systems using the latest features of .NET 5 and C# 9.
- Solve scalability problems in web apps using enterprise architecture patterns.
Software architecture is the practice of implementing structures and systems that streamline the software development process and improve the quality of an app. This fully revised and expanded second edition, featuring the latest features of .NET 5 and C# 9, enables you to acquire the key skills, knowledge, and best practices required to become an effective software architect.
This second edition features additional explanation of the principles of Software architecture, including new chapters on Azure Service Fabric, Kubernetes, and Blazor. It also includes more discussion on security, microservices, and DevOps, including GitHub deployments for the software development cycle.
You will begin by understanding how to transform user requirements into architectural needs and exploring the differences between functional and non-functional requirements. Next, you will explore how to carefully choose a cloud solution for your infrastructure, along with the factors that will help you manage your app in a cloud-based environment.
Finally, you will discover software design patterns and various software approaches that will allow you to solve common problems faced during development.
By the end of this book, you will be able to build and deliver highly scalable enterprise-ready apps that meet your organization's business requirements.
