Use a simple programming model and the .NET language of your choice to build large distributed systems. This book teaches you the Microsoft Orleans framework.
Even well-versed professional software developers with expertise in C# (or another language) find themselves unequipped to meet the challenges of distributed systems as infrastructure moves to multi-core; multiple computers are being used for scale, redundancy, and cloud computing; and multi-region deployment is taking place.
Orleans handles many of the concerns of distributed computing and cloud infrastructure, allowing you to concentrate on writing application logic.
