Docker for .NET Apps - on Linux and Windows
What you'll learn
- Core Docker concepts: containers, images and registries
- Building and running .NET Framework apps in Windows containers
- Building and running .NET Core apps in Linux and Windows containers
- Defining and running multi-container apps with Docker Compose
- Breaking up monolithic apps into a distributed architecture
- How to prepare Dockerized .NET apps for production
- How to run containers at scale using Docker Swarm
- Familiarity with .NET apps - from a dev, ops or architecture background
- Access to a Windows 10 machine to follow along with the exercises
Docker is a platform for running applications in lightweight units of compute called containers. You can take pretty much any app and run it in a container, and this course will teach you how to do that - with 100% focus on .NET applications and real-world skills.
You'll learn how to run .NET Framework applications in Windows containers, and .NET Core applications in Windows and Linux containers. Then you'll see how to run new and old components in a distributed architecture with Docker Compose. Finally you'll learn what you need to do to get your Dockerized .NET apps ready for production, and how it looks to run apps at scale in Docker Swarm.
The learning journey in this course is honed from many years of teaching - you don't need to have any existing Docker knowledge, you'll start with the basics and add more knowledge with every lesson. And the content is honed from many years of consulting projects, helping organizations to move .NET apps to Docker and run them successfully in production. That can be the first step to modernizing monolithic applications, or for migrating on-premises applications to the cloud.
Your instructor, Elton Stoneman, is a Docker Captain and a Microsoft MVP - and he's been running containers in production since 2015.
Who this course is for:
- .NET developers who want to build and run apps with Docker
- .NET admins who want to deploy and manage apps with Docker
- Docker users who want to run Windows workloads in containers
- .NET architects who want to remodel monolithic applications
- .NET users who want to migrate apps to the cloud
I'm a consultant and trainer for Docker and Kubernetes - I help organizations at all stages of their container journey. Containers have been my focus since 2014: I worked at Docker for three years and now I'm a Docker Captain.
I'm also a Microsoft Azure MVP and I spent 10 years consulting on .NET projects before the container revolution, so I have lots of experience in projects to migrate and re-architect older applications.
I've written books on Docker and Kubernetes, and I've been fortunate to speak and run workshops at conferences around the world. My teaching is practical and hands-on - you'll learn with me by working on real-world problems.
