You'll learn to create and render views for both server and browser, optimize local storage, streamline server interactions, and handle data serialization. Designed for working developers, this book offers examples in relevant frameworks like React, Redux, Angular, Ember, and webpack. You'll also explore unique debugging and testing techniques and master specific SEO skills. ...
ASP.NET Core in Action
ASP.NET Core in Action

The dev world has permanently embraced open platforms with flexible tooling, and ASP.NET Core has changed with it. This free, open source web framework delivers choice without compromise. You can enjoy the benefits of a mature, well-supported stack and the freedom to develop and deploy from and onto any cloud or on-prem platform. ASP.NET Core in Action opens up the world of cross-platform web development with .NET. You'll start with a crash course in .NET Core, immediately cutting the cord between ASP.NET and Windows. Then, you'll begin to build amazing web applications step by step, systematically adding essential features like logins, configuration, dependency injection, and custom components. Along the way, you'll mix in important process steps like testing, multiplatform deployment, and security. ...
Entity Framework Core in Action
Entity Framework Core in Action

There's a mismatch in the way OO programs and relational databases represent data. Entity Framework is an object-relational mapper (ORM) that bridges this gap, making it radically easier to query and write to databases from a .NET application. EF creates a data model that matches the structure of your OO code so you can query and write to your database using standard LINQ commands. It will even automatically generate the model from your database schema. Using crystal-clear explanations, real-world examples, and around 100 diagrams, Entity Framework Core in Action teaches you how to access and update relational data from .NET applications. You'll start with a clear breakdown of Entity Framework, long with the mental model behind ORM. Then you'll discover time-saving patterns and best practices for security, performance tuning, and even unit testing. As you go, you'll address common data access challenges and learn how to handle them with Entity Framework. ...
.NET Core in Action
.NET Core in Action

.NET Core is an open source framework that lets you write and run .NET applications on Linux and Mac, without giving up on Windows. Built for everything from lightweight web apps to industrial-strength distributed systems, it's perfect for deploying .NET servers to any cloud platform, including AWS and GCP. .NET Core in Action introduces you to cross-platform development with .NET Core. This hands-on guide concentrates on new Core features as you walk through familiar tasks like testing, logging, data access, and networking. As you go, you'll explore modern architectures like microservices and cloud data storage, along with practical matters like performance profiling, localization, and signing assemblies. ...
Concurrency in .NET
Concurrency in .NET

Unlock the incredible performance built into your multi-processor machines. Concurrent applications run faster because they spread work across processor cores, performing several tasks at the same time. Modern tools and techniques on the .NET platform, including parallel LINQ, functional programming, asynchronous programming, and the Task Parallel Library, offer powerful alternatives to traditional thread-based concurrency. Concurrency in .NET teaches you to write code that delivers the speed you need for performance-sensitive applications. Featuring examples in both C# and F#, this book guides you through concurrent and parallel designs that emphasize functional programming in theory and practice. You'll start with the foundations of concurrency and master essential techniques and design practices to optimize code running on modern multiprocessor systems. ...
