ASP.NET Core 2 High Performance - Second Edition
Learn how to develop web applications that deploy cross-platform and are optimized for high performance using ASP.NET Core 2 About This Book ? Master high-level web app performance improvement techniques using ASP.NET Core 2.0 ? Find the right balance between premature optimization and inefficient code ? Design workflows that run asynchronously and are resilient to transient performance issues Who This Book Is For This book is aimed for readers who can build a web application and have some experience with ASP.NET or some other web application framework (such as Ruby on Rails or Django). They can be people who are happy learning details independently but who struggle to discover the topics that they should be researching. The reader should be interested in improving the performance of their web app and in learning about ASP.NET Core and modern C#. What You Will Learn ? Understand ASP.NET Core 2 and how it differs from its predecessor ? Address performance issues at the early stages of development ? Set up development environments on Windows, Mac, and Linux ? Measure, profile and find the most significant problems ? Identify the differences between development workstations and production infrastructures, and how these can exacerbate problems ? Boost the performance of your application but with an eye to how it affects complexity and maintenance ? Explore a few cutting-edge techniques such as advanced hashing and custom transports In Detail The ASP.NET Core 2 framework is used to develop high-performance and cross-platform web applications. It is built on .NET Core 2 and includes significantly more framework APIs than version 1. This book addresses high-level performance improvement techniques. It starts by showing you how to locate and measure problems and then shows you how to solve some of the most common ones. Next, it shows you how to get started with ASP.NET Core 2 on Windows, Mac, Linux, and with Docker containers. The book illustrates what problems can occur as latency increases when deploying to a cloud infrastructure. It also shows you how to optimize C# code and choose the best data structures for the job. It covers new features in C# 6 and 7, along with parallel programming and distributed architectures. By the end of this book, you will be fixing latency issues and optimizing performance problems, but you will also know how this affects the complexity and maintenance of your application. Finally, we will explore a few highly advanced techniques for further optimization. Style and approach A step-by-step practical guide filled with real-world use cases and examples
The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that follows a cast of characters living in the fictional town of West Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story primarily concerns the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his quixotic passion and obsession for the beautiful former debutante Daisy Buchanan. Considered to be Fitzgerald's magnum opus, The Great Gatsby explores themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess, creating a portrait of the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties that has been described as a cautionary tale regarding the American Dream. Fitzgerald—inspired by the parties he had attended while visiting Long Island's north shore—began planning the novel in 1923, desiring to produce, in his words, "something new—something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." Progress was slow, with Fitzgerald completing his first draft following a move to the French Riviera in 1924. His editor, Maxwell Perkins, felt the book was vague and persuaded the author to revise over the next winter. Fitzgerald was repeatedly ambivalent about the book's title and he considered a variety of alternatives, including titles that referenced the Roman character Trimalchio; the title he was last documented to have desired was Under the Red, White, and Blue. First published by Scribner's in April 1925, The Great Gatsby received mixed reviews and sold poorly; in its first year, the book sold only 20,000 copies. Fitzgerald died in 1940, believing himself to be a failure and his work forgotten. However, the novel experienced a revival during World War II, and became a part of American high school curricula and numerous stage and film adaptations in the following decades. Today, The Great Gatsby is widely considered to be a literary classic and a contender for the title "Great American Novel." In 1998, the Modern Library editorial board voted it the 20th century's best American novel and second best English-language novel of the same time period.

If This Isn't Nice, What Is?
Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most in-demand commencement speakers of his time. For each occasion, Vonnegut's words were unfailingly unique, insightful, and witty, and they stayed with audience members long after graduation. As edited by Dan Wakefield, this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers of all ages. At times hilarious, razor-sharp, freewheeling, and deeply serious, these reflections are ideal for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their "long-delayed puberty ceremony"-marking the passage from student to full-time adult. This book makes the perfect gift for high school or college graduates-or for parents and grandparents who remember Vonnegut fondly and want to connect with him in a new context.
The Spirit of Christmas
It was the hour of rest in the Country Beyond the Stars. All the silver bells that swing with the turning of the great ring of light which lies around that land were softly chiming; and the sound of their commotion went down like dew upon the golden ways of the city, and the long alleys of blossoming trees, and the meadows of asphodel, and the curving shores of the River of Life.
A Christmas Garland

No?l dans les pays étrangers
Les fêtes de No?l, dans les pays du Nord, ont un double caractère religieux et familial. Les offices diffèrent peu des n?tres, si ce n'est que les chants d'église sont plus souvent exécutés en langue vulgaire. Nous ne citerons que l'adaptation de l' Adeste fidèles: Oh! come all ye faithful! (Oh! venez tous, fidèles) si populaire en Angleterre, et le Cantique des Anges (Engelenzang) que des chanteurs éminents font entendre, chaque année, dans l'église protestante de Mo?se et Aaron, à Amsterdam.
Contes de No?l
L'arbre de No?l, un robuste sapin de la montagne, s'élève droit, imposant et un peu nu, dans la grande pièce lambrissée de vieux chêne. Ses bougies, en trop petit nombre, éclairent mal les coins délabrés; mais, dans la haute cheminée, une énorme b?che envoie sur le plancher, soigneusement lavé, sur les meubles, modestes et brillants, une chaude et joyeuse lueur rouge.
A Wonderful Night; An Interpretation Of Christmas
e live in an age of wonders. Great discoveries and startling events crowd upon us so fast that we have scarcely recovered from the bewildering effects of one before another comes, and we are thus kept in a constant whirl of excitement. The heavens are full of shooting stars, and while watching one we are distracted by another. So frequent is this experience that our nerves almost refuse to respond to the shock of a new sensation. We are no longer surprised at surprises. The marvelous has become the commonplace, and the unexpected is what we now expect.
The Feast of St. Friend
Something has happened to Christmas, or to our hearts; or to both. In order to be convinced of this it is only necessary to compare the present with the past.

For weeks the house rustled with charming and thrilling secrets, and with the furtive noises of paper parcels being wrapped and unwrapped;
