Building a Deployment Pipeline for ASP.NET Core with Docker

by Wes Higbee

Thanks to containers and images, Docker makes it incredibly easy to build out a complex deployment pipeline. This course will take you from development through to production with your ASP.NET applications.

What you'll learn

Automating a deployment pipeline was feasible pre-Docker, but was a hassle. Now thanks to containers and images, it's incredibly easy to spin up pipelines. In this course, Building a Deployment Pipeline for ASP.NET Core with Docker, you'll setup a pipeline to build, unit test, and package up an ASP.NET Core app into an image. The pipeline will be triggered every time someone commits to version control. First, you'll learn how the app image is pushed to a private registry and used to perform integration testing with multi-container tests, including a web site, email server, and integration test runner. Next, if all testing passes, you'll discover how the pipeline auto deploys to a demo environment, so anyone can test out the latest version of your app in a matter of minutes after a line of code is checked in. Then, you'll dive into how the pipeline can manually trigger deployment to production. Finally, you'll explore containerizing performance testing. By the end of this course, you'll have a pipeline you can deploy for your own applications.
