Enhance your enterprise application development skills by mastering parallel programming techniques in .NET and C#
- Write efficient, fine-grained, and scalable parallel code with C# and .NET Core
- Experience how parallel programming works by building a powerful application
- Learn the fundamentals of multithreading by working with IIS and Kestrel
In today’s world, every CPU has a multi-core processor. However, unless your application has implemented parallel programming, it will fail to utilize the hardware’s full processing capacity. This book will show you how to write modern software on the optimized and high-performing .NET Core 3 framework using C# 8.
Hands-On Parallel Programming with C# 8 and .NET Core 3 covers how to build multithreaded, concurrent, and optimized applications that harness the power of multi-core processors. Once you’ve understood the fundamentals of threading and concurrency, you’ll gain insights into the data structure in .NET Core that supports parallelism. The book will then help you perform asynchronous programming in C# and diagnose and debug parallel code effectively. You’ll also get to grips with the new Kestrel server and understand the difference between the IIS and Kestrel operating models. Finally, you’ll learn best practices such as test-driven development, and run unit tests on your parallel code.
By the end of the book, you’ll have developed a deep understanding of the core concepts of concurrency and asynchrony to create responsive applications that are not CPU-intensive.
What you will learn
- Analyze and break down a problem statement for parallelism
- Explore the APM and EAP patterns and how to move legacy code to Task
