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.
Lift and shift your existing .NET applications by optimizing your deployments with Windows Containers and by improving your DevOps operations for your dev/test/production environments, ultimately making your application cloud DevOps-ready.
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.
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.
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.
Windows gives you the tools and capabilities to build modern experiences that empower your customers to do more. The Universal Windows Platform (UWP) lets you create a single app package that can run on a wide range of devices, and the Windows Store provides a unified distribution channel you can use to safely reach customers worldwide.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence frameworks, like Infer.NET and ML.NET, along with cloud services from Azure, help you easily build intelligent .NET apps. Use predictive models, vision algorithms, speech processing, and more.
