7:30 PM to 8:00 PM - Asp.Net Core, Docker and AWS case study presented by PerfectMind Technology Inc.


ASP.NET Core 2.0 with Docker

This is the first of two talks on the topic of Docker Containers.

The first talk will cover the basics:

  • an introduction to Docker architecture
  • create and run a container from an image downloaded from Docker Hub
  • containerizing applications using Docker

We will look at both Linux & Windows native Docker containers in Windows 10. The talk is intended to be very practical. We shall create a simple ASP.NET Core 2.0 application in Visual Studio that connects to a containerized MySQL database. We will then also dockerize the ASP.NET Core 2.0 application. All scenarios will be demo'ed using both Linux & Windows containers.

The second talk will be a month later and shall tackle the issue of deployment to the cloud through ACR (Azure Container Registry) and VSTS.
