How To Enhance Core App Performance?

Performance decides whether the website is a dumb or successful product. There are over thousands of websites available performing similar tasks but only a few are popular. These few popular websites are having highly optimized data, advance security and well performing. Users always prefer to visit these websites since these are instantly accessible in least time.

Enhance Core App Performance

For instance, there is not just one search engine available for us. We can use BING, or Baidu just like we use Google. However, we mostly prefer Bing and Google since you can avail search results within 3-4 seconds. Users hate waiting for the results and if the waiting time is more than 4-5 seconds, they won’t be using that option for search. So, here we clear the fact how performance is the main concern of any website. If any website is not performing the way it is expected, user will have least interaction with it.

Here in this article, we will talk about few points that can be implemented by developers while building an core website to enhance performance. core is an open source, free and cross-platform used by developers as a website development framework. It is a Microsoft product and not an upgraded version of core is completely rewritten from scratch that comes with a single programming model of web API and MVC.

Let’s learn the features of core and useful tips to enhance core app performance:

1) Latest version impact on performance positively

The initial release of core was made in 2016 for the first time with Visual Studio 2015 and today, developers can use core 2.2 version. When comparing the first version to the latest version, it is found that app developed in core 2.2 runs faster than the earlier version. The company Microsoft always introduces some improvements related to performance in the next version compared to the older version.

2) Avoid synchronous call

Developers can try to avoid creating blocking calls while building the core application. A synchronous or blocking call can be anything; either the developer is taking data from API or running certain operations internally. They need to take asynchronous approach to execute the call.

3) Use of asynchronous programming

Asynchronous programming model was first made in C# 5.0 and from there it gained popularity. core applies the exact asynchronous programming paradigm which helps in getting the most reliable, faster, and responsive application as a result.

4) Never use task.wait or task.result with asynchronous programming

Developers are recommended to avoid using Task.Wait and Task.Result while working on an asynchronous programming project and instead use await due to following reasons:

  • This block the thread until the task is over, and waits for its completion.
  • Wait and task.result both can be used to wrap any type of execution in AggregateException and generate complexity during exception handling period.
  • When developer uses the Await and not the Task.Wait and Task.Result, they don’t need to worry about handling the execution.
  • Sometimes, these both create DEADLOCKS and block the current thread.
  • It is to note that Task.Result and Wait can be used only if parallel task execution is running. Experts never recommend using it with Asynchronous programming.

5) Using cache whenever possible

The performance of the application can be boosted with the reduced number of the requests to the server every time. It doesn’t imply that developers will not make the call to the server but they will not make it every time. First time, when they make call to the server, they get the reply, which is later stored somewhere for future perspective for a certain period of time. Next time, when they make the call for same response, they need to check the stored data in the first request and then use it instead of making call to the server.

Storing the data in the easy to access location and without making the call to the server is something comes under good practice. Here, developers can leverage Cache. Content caching helps developers to lower the count of server calls and assists them in enhancing the performance of application development. Cache can be done at any point of a location, such as client-side caching, client/server-side caching, or server-side caching.

Other performance tips for client side code:

  • Bundling and minification

Using minification and bundling can help in optimizing the content prior loading it on UI. Developers can try their client-side assets loading in one go.

  • Shrink images

Developers must try not to use large images. Before loading the images, they can shrink the images with the help of compression techniques. Hope this post is useful for you and the tips shared here will help you in enhancing the performance of the core app build by you.
