SignalR on .NET 6 - the Complete Guide
The easiest way to enable real-time two-way HTTP communication on .NET 6
Are you a software engineer who needs to build a fully interactive application with real-time updates? Perhaps you are aiming to write an instant messaging app. Or perhaps you want to receive updates about someone's location in real time. Or maybe you have a fleet of responsive Internet of Things devices that you need to get to communicate in real time with each other and the server.
It is a very common challenge of modern software development. If your application isn't Interactive enough, the market will simply reject it. Most apps of today are expected to be interactive. But unfortunately, such functionality is typically hard to implement.
However, if you choose to build your server-side application on ASP.NET Core, you are in luck. There is a way to make this whole process incredibly easy. It's made easy by a library called SignalR, which is inbuilt in ASP.NET Core.
SignalR doesn't only enable us to achieve real-time two-way communication between applications. It also substantially simplifies the process of enabling all of this in the code. Under the hood, it uses various two-way communication protocols, such as WebSocket. However, it abstracts away all the implementation complexity of these protocols. To the developer, working with this library will mostly consists of writing simple, intuitive, and easily readable expressions.
In this book, we will cover everything you would need to know about using SignalR on .NET 6, so you will see how to integrate it with the the latest features on ASP.NET Core 6 and C# 10. We will cover much more than you can find in the official documentation of the library. For example, you will learn how to connect a plain WebSocket client to it, which may help you to write a client in a language that isn't officially supported.
Likewise, we will cover many concepts that aren't directly related to SignalR, but are important for its production-ready implementation. These include single sign-on, certificate authorization, logging, metrics, and scaling out. By the end of this book, you would be able to identify the situations where SignalR is the best tool for the job and you would be fully capable of implementing it.

The easiest way to learn design patterns
With C# code samples using .NET 6 templates
One thing that makes you truly stand out as a software engineer is a good knowledge of design patterns. Knowing them makes you quicker at solving problems. It makes you much better at understanding architecture. And it significantly improves your chances of landing a good job, as it makes you better at solving problems during technical interviews.
But the biggest problem with the design patterns is that they are hard to learn. Most of them are not very intuitive. Therefore getting to understand them at the level where you can use them usually takes a long time. Many developers just give up, which prevents them from unlocking their full potential.
This book aims to solve this problem. It takes a very different approach from how design patterns are normally taught. It does it by providing sufficient context first. Instead of jumping into the UML diagrams and code samples, the book provides descriptions of real-life software engineering challenges that developers can easily relate to. For each of these scenarios, appropriate design patterns are listed with a summary of how each of them can solve a given problem. And only then, when a sufficient context has been provided, we jump into the code examples.
The process of effective learning is not about memorization. It's about adding new associations to the existing knowledge. And this is the approach this book has taken.
Because of its structure, this book can also be effectively used as a reference source. It allows you to look up an appropriate design pattern as you are facing a problem of a particular type.
