Architect and design highly scalable, robust, clean and highly performant applications in .NET Core 1.0About This BookIncorporate architectural soft-skills such as DevOps and Agile methodologies to enhance program-level objectivesGain knowledge of architectural approaches on the likes of SOA architecture and microservices to provide traceability and rationale for architectural decisionsExplore a variety of practical use cases and code examples to implement the tools and techniques described in the bookWho This Book Is ForThis book is for experienced .NET developers who are aspiring to become architects of enterprise-grade applications, as well as software architects who would like to leverage .NET to create effective blueprints of applications.What you will learnUnderstand the key components of enterprise architecture and get to know about design patterns and distributed computing to keep applications fast and scalableGrasp the important aspects and best practices of application lifecycle management and understand the various types of software development lifecycle processes with development using .NET CoreLeverage the popular ALM tools, application insights, and its usage to monitor performance, testability, and optimization tools in an enterpriseDesign and develop applications using different architectural approaches such as Layered architecture, Service Oriented Architecture, Microservices, and Cloud-specific solutionsSecure your applications using the different approaches and models of the Security frameworkExplore various authentication models such as Open Authentication, Two-Factor authentication, social media based authentication, and safe storage using App secretsGain knowledge about the recent market trends and practices and how they can be achieved with .NET Core and Microsoft tools and technologiesIn DetailMicrosoft .NET has always been the preferred framework for developing Enterprise applications that target the Windows platform. However, the release of .NET Core empowers senior developers and enterprise architects to think out of the box, and use .NET Core to design and develop robust applications that target multiple platforms.If you want to design and develop enterprise applications using .NET Core as the development framework and learn about industry-wide best practices and guidelines, then this book is for you.The book starts with a brief introduction to Enterprise Architecture, which will help you to understand what enterprise architecture is and what the key components are. It will then teach you about the types of patterns and principles for software development and explain the various aspects of distributed computing to keep your applications effective and scalable. These chapters act as a catalyst to start the practical implementation, and design and develop applications using different architectural approaches such as Layered architecture, Service Oriented Architecture, Microservices and Cloud-specific solutions.Gradually, you will learn about the different approaches and models of the Security framework and explore various authentication models such as social media based authentication and safe storage using App secrets. At the end, you will get to know the concepts and usage of the emerging fields such as DevOps, Big Data, architectural practices, and Artificial Intelligence.
