Performance tricks I learned from contributing to the Azure .NET SDK

As a practical learner, I've found performance optimizations are my biggest challenge and where I've learned the most helpful tricks, mostly by trial and error.


It turns out the Azure .NET SDK is a perfect “playground” for learning those tricks—it's maintained by people who care and give feedback.

Over the past few years, I've contributed over seventy pull requests to the Azure .NET SDK. In this session, I'll walk you through the performance improvements I made, and help you develop your own “superpowers”—spotting and avoiding closure allocations, finding opportunities for memory pooling, and more.

By day, he's a devoted .NET crusader, espousing the virtues of message-based systems. By night? He's racing against his own mischievous router hack, committing a bevy of performance improvements before the clock strikes midnight.
