Publisher: Manning Publications
Microservices are responsible for very tightly focused capabilities that are part of a more complex server-side software system. Microservices, when done well, are malleable, scalable, resilient, and allow a short lead time from start of implementation to deployment to production. When using microservices, the need for the technology to be lightweight and low ceremony grows, because creating new microservices needs to be quick and easy. OWIN is great for reuse of plumbing code and a lightweight web framework, like Nancy, is ideal. Microservices in .NET Core teaches readers how to build and deploy secure and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy. The book starts with an introduction to the microservices architectural style. Next, readers learn important practical aspects of developing microservices from simple core concepts to more sophisticated. Throughout the book, readers will see many code examples implementing it with lightweight .NET technologies' most prominently Nancy. By the end, they'll be able to quickly and easily build reliable and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy, OWIN and other open technologies. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Learn how Roslyn's new code generation capability will let you write software that is more concise, runs faster, and is easier to maintain. You will learn from real-world business applications to create better software by letting the computer write its own code based on your business logic already defined in lookup tables. Code Generation with Rosyln is the first book to cover this new capability. You will learn how these techniques can be used to simplify systems integration so that if one system already defines business logic through lookup tables, you can integrate a new system and share business logic by allowing the new system to write its own business logic based on already existing table-based business logic. One of the many benefits you will discover is that Roslyn uses an innovative approach to compiler design, opening up the inner workings of the compiler process. You will learn how to see the syntax tree that Roslyn is building as it compiles your code. Additionally, you will learn to feed it your own syntax tree that you create on the fly. What You'll Learn Structure logic to be stored in database design Build complex conditional logic based on lookup data in the database Compile code that you generate programmatically Discover generated code and run it dynamically to implement new business logic Debug problems in generated code Deploy and access generated code Who This Book Is For Back end developers in very dynamic fast-paced business environments. Developers focused on integrating different systems across an enterprise should also find this information useful.
