About this book

An Atypical ASP.NET Core 6 Design Patterns Guide, Second Edition approaches programming like playing with LEGO®: snapping small pieces together to create something beautiful. Thoroughly updated for ASP.NET Core 6, with further coverage of microservices patterns, data contracts, and event-driven architecture, this book gives you the tools to build and glue reliable components together to improve your programmatic masterpieces.

The chapters are organized based on scale and topic, allowing you to start small and build on a strong base, the same way that you would develop a program. You will begin by exploring basic design patterns, SOLID architectural principles, dependency injection, and other ASP.NET Core 6 mechanisms. You will explore component-scale patterns, and then move to higher level application-scale patterns and techniques to better structure your applications. Finally, you'll advance to the client side to connect the dots with tools like Blazor and make ASP.NET Core a viable full-stack web development framework.

You will supplement your learning with practical use cases and best practices, exploring a range of significant Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns along the way. By the end of the book, you will be comfortable combining and implementing patterns in different ways, and crafting software solutions of any scale.

Section 1: Principles and Methodologies

This section focuses on architectural principles and development methodologies that we use throughout the book. These introductory chapters are essential for progressing toward making great architectural decisions.

We first look at how to approach the book itself, explore prerequisites, and see a few helpful topics. Then, we cover automated testing and xUnit, to finally jump into the architectural principles, where we begin our study of the fundamentals of modern software engineering.

This section comprises the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1, Introduction
  • Chapter 2, Automated Testing
  • Chapter 3, Architectural Principles
