Today I am announcing the brand new edition of my book titled Rock Your Code: Code & App Performance for Microsoft .NET, now available on Amazon.
How fast your code executes is very important for your users and back-end server processes. This is even more important for the future as more and more users, use your app or services. Thinking about performance while you are first writing the code will save tons of time and money in the future! There are many ways to write the same block of code, some more performant than others.
Short of requiring your users to purchase faster machines with more memory and faster processors or the same for back-end servers, this book will show you the best practices when writing business apps, so your code can run as fast as possible and could lead to cost savings for your servers or cloud services.
This book discusses and shows common code performance guidelines for Microsoft .NET. Topics include general tips, string performance, reference type & structure performance, collection performance, internationalization & localization, how to analyze code for performance problems and more. This new edition of the book includes data from over 3,400 benchmark tests and has brand new chapters on serialization for JSON and XML, collection performance under simulated workloads and how to speed up performance using the dotNetTips.com NuGet packages.
This book is written for Microsoft .NET Core 3 and Microsoft .NET version 4.8 using Visual Studio 2019. All examples in this book are in C#.
Purchase From Amazon & Support The Voice of Slum
After my trip to the Voice of Slum orphanage in Delhi, India this year (read the full blog post here), I have decided I want to jump-start their vocational program that teaches women how to sew in order to support their family. Starting May 1st, 2019, 100% of the profit from this book will be donated monthly. So, if you want to learn how to get the best performance out of your code and help support these kids, please purchase one for yourself or one for each one of your team members by using one of these links below:
If you purchase one and I come to your city to speak at a conference, I will be happy to autograph it for you. To say thank you, I will even throw in some dotNetDave swag like one of my custom guitar picks, tour sicker, tour magnet, or a tour poster (while supplies last)!
If you are in a country where my book isn’t available, Voice of Slum has lots of other ways to help like purchase school supplies or sponsor a kid for $30 a month and more. Visit their website to learn more.
I have also started a GoFundMe page to raise money too: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-fund-vocational-training-at-the-voice-of-slum
