Building cloud-ready, resilient systems in .NET

You may think that your application is already cloud-ready, it's deployed in the cloud, isn't it?! But in truth, if your application is hard to monitor/scale/release/maintain, lacks resiliency, and is poorly structured, then it's not "cloud-ready".


So what does "cloud-ready" actually mean?

A “cloud ready” application is a legacy software application that has been modified to run on cloud computing infrastructure.

Whether you are looking at a modular monolith or a full-blown distributed system, building a cloud-ready, resilient application is a must.

In this workshop, we will look at the requirements for Tacky Tacos. A fictional taco business that's thriving and wishes to expand.
We'll look at all the different requirements that need to be met, starting with a code kata and how we can apply various design patterns to our way of thinking.
We'll then move on to building out a functioning, all-be-it, contrived modular monolith using .NET 8 and C#, learning as we go.

Topics we'll cover:
- Architecture and Methodology
- Modular monolith vs microservices vs SOA
- Distribution and Modularisation
- Common design patterns
- Modelling requirements
- .NET 8 application development recap
- Databases
- Synchronous communication
- Asynchronous communication
- Add more!
