Book Review: Architecting Modern Web Applications with ASP.NET Core and Azure

Recently I read in The week in .Net about some new e-books published by Microsoft about web, cloud and container development and one of these books was Architecting Modern Web Applications with ASP.NET Core and Azure.

After I have read it I can say it is a rather small book which gives you a good but very basic overview about ASP.Net Core MVC development.

It “touches” the following topics:

  • Traditional Web applications vs. Single Page Applications
  • Architectural and design principles, e.g.:
    • separation of concerns
    • dependency inversion
    • persistence ignorance
  • Common web architecture styles, like:
    • layers
    • clean architecture
  • Client side web technologies (e.g. Angular)
  • How to setup your first ASP.NET Core MVC application
    • Structure the code
    • Design cross cutting concerns
    • Security
    • Caching
  • How to use EF Core
  • Testing Core MVC applications
  • Azure hosting

Definitively a good one if you are new to ASP.Net Core (MVC).
