About this book
Writing high-performance code while building an application is crucial. Over the years, Microsoft has focused on delivering various performance-related improvements within the .NET ecosystem. This book will help you understand the aspects involved in designing responsive, resilient, and high-performance applications.
You will start by understanding the foundation of high-performance code and the latest performance-related improvements in C# 9.0 and .NET 5. Next, you’ll learn how to use tracing and diagnostics to track down performance issues and the cause of memory leaks. The chapters that follow then show you how to enhance the performance of your networked applications and various ways to improve directory tasks, file tasks, and more. Later, you’ll go on to improve data querying performance and write responsive user interfaces. You’ll also explore various ways to process code synchronously, asynchronously, and in parallel to reduce the time it takes to process a series of tasks. Finally, you’ll discover how you can use cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure to build scalable distributed solutions.
By the end of this book, you’ll have the confidence you need to build highly resilient, high-performance applications that meet your customer's demands.
