Software architecture is one of the most discussed topics in the software industry today, and its importance will certainly grow more in the future. But the speed at which new features are added to these software solutions keeps increasing, and new architectural opportunities keep emerging. To strengthen your command on this, Packt brings to you the Second Edition of Software Architecture with C# 9 and .NET 5 by Gabriel Baptista and Francesco Abbruzzese – a fully revised and expanded guide, featuring the latest features of .NET 5 and C# 9. 

This book covers the most common design patterns and frameworks involved in modern cloud-based and distributed software architectures. It discusses when and how to use each pattern, by providing you with practical real-world scenarios. This book also presents techniques and processes such as DevOps, microservices, Kubernetes, continuous integration, and cloud computing, so that you can have a best-in-class software solution developed and delivered for your customers.  

This book will help you to understand the product that your customer wants from you. It will guide you to deliver and solve the biggest problems you can face during development. It also covers the do’s and don’ts that you need to follow when you manage your application in a cloud-based environment. You will learn about different architectural approaches, such as layered architectures, service-oriented architecture, microservices, Single Page Applications, and cloud architecture, and understand how to apply them to specific business requirements.  

Finally, you will deploy code in remote environments or on the cloud using Azure. All the concepts in this book will be explained with the help of real-world practical use cases where design principles make the difference when creating safe and robust applications. By the end of the book, you will be able to develop and deliver highly scalable and secure enterprise-ready applications that meet the end customers’ business needs.  


It is worth mentioning that Software Architecture with C# 9 and .NET 5, Second Edition will not only cover the best practices that a software architect should follow for developing C# and .NET Core solutions, but it will also discuss all the environments that we need to master in order to develop a software product according to the latest trends.  

This second edition is improved in code, and adapted to the new opportunities offered by C# 9 and .Net 5. We added all new frameworks and technologies such as gRPC, and Blazor, and described Kubernetes in more detail in a dedicated chapter.  

To get the most out of this book, understand it as a guidance that you may want to revisit many times for different circumstances. Do not forget to have Visual Studio Community 2019 or higher installed and be sure that you understand C# .NET principles.
