Recent changes to ASP.NET 5 let you run it cross platform and completely self-host. Want to run an entire site off a USB without having IIS installed or even do this cross platform? You can. Come see how to setup ASP.NET cross platform.

Docker is an amazing technology that lets your apps be completely portable with their own dependency and change tracking. Docker abstracts certain specifics to let apps run in a container. By doing that, you can deliver them virtually anywhere and remove the burden of having to make sure all dependencies are installed between your dev/qa/production environments. Docker currently runs on Linux, but Microsoft has announced it will support Windows, so you'll learn how it runs on Windows as well.

This session will cover how to set up ASP.NET to run cross platform, but also install and configure Docker and bring over your ASP.NET applications.

You will learn:

  • How to setup ASP.NET cross platform
  • What docker is and how to set it up
  • How to setup ASP.NET apps to run in Docker containers
