Application Architecture Guidance
Practical advice, best practices, and sample applications for using .NET with microservices, Docker containers, Kubernetes, Xamarin, ASP.NET, Azure, Service Fabric, and more.
Microservices and Docker Containers
Microservices are small, modular, and independently deployable services. Docker containers (for Linux and Windows) simplify deployment and testing by bundling a service and its dependencies into a single unit, which is then run in an isolated environment.
Web Applications with ASP.NET
ASP.NET Core allows you to build high-performance, cross-platform web applications. Patterns like MVC and built-in support for Dependency Injection allow you to build applications that are easier to test and maintain.
Deploying to the Cloud with Azure
Production ready cloud applications need to be built for scalability, monitoring, management, security, resiliency, and more. The patterns covered in this guidance include example implementations for Microsoft Azure.
Mobile Applications with Xamarin
Xamarin allows you to build native Android, iOS, and Windows applications using .NET. Common patterns, such as MVVM, combined with good application layering, will maximize code sharing and result in an application that is easier to understand, test and maintain.
