Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Rag Dhiman, and welcome to my course titled Simplified .NET Background Jobs with Hangfire. I've been developing and designing software for well over 15 years, and I'm an author at Pluralsight. In this course, we are going to learn how to create, process, and manage those long‑running code tasks we frequently have to do in our .NET applications. And we are going to do this by using an open source framework called Hangfire. Long‑running code tasks are tasks that you really do not want to perform within your live application because they negatively affect performance, and therefore, they also negatively affect the user's experience. In this course, we are going to learn how to create process and manage these long‑running tasks as asynchronous Hangfire background jobs. We will look at how Hangfire lets us run these long‑running tasks as fire‑and‑forget background jobs, scheduled background jobs, all frequently recurring background jobs that recur based on a schedule. You'll also learn how to manage these jobs by using Hangfire's excellent dashboard. By the end of this course, you'll know how to install Hangfire and the Hangfire dashboard and how to create the different types of background jobs that Hangfire supports. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with .NET application development using Visual Studio and C#. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Hangfire at Pluralsight with the course titled, Simplified .NET Background Jobs with Hangfire.
