This course will teach you how to embrace Docker and Kubernetes within your .NET development efforts, including using Docker Compose to support SSL and a multi-project solution that includes a database.
You've probably been hearing a lot about Docker and Kubernetes lately, and for good reason: they are technologies that enable us as developers to achieve great results with improved efficiency in many cases. In this course, Fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes for .NET Developers, you’ll learn to use both Docker and Kubernetes in your .NET projects and solutions. First, you’ll explore using public Docker images to simplify installation of dependent services that your applications use. Next, you’ll containerize your .NET applications and set them up inside Docker Compose with support for SSL on your websites and completely simplify setup for new developers. Finally, you’ll learn how to prepare your solutions for deployment within a Kubernetes environment. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes needed to apply them in your own .NET projects and solutions.
Course Overview Hi, everyone, my name's Erik Dahl, and welcome to my course Fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes for .NET Developers. I'm a principal architect at RealPage. You've probably been hearing a lot about Docker and Kubernetes lately and for good reason. They're technologies that enable us as developers to achieve great results with improved efficiency, in many cases. But hearing about the tech and actually doing something constructive with it are two very different things. There are a lot of great resources and documentation available, but I, for one, had a hard time bridging the gap between the .NET development experience that I was used to and the content I was seeing regarding Docker and Kubernetes. This course is all about bridging that gap and lifting the fog that may surround those topics for you. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understanding how Docker and Kubernetes can benefit your development efforts, setting up your workstation to work easily with these technologies using the tools you already know, using Docker and Docker Compose to help your development efforts, including the use of a database within this development setup, and preparing your application to be deployed into a Kubernetes cluster. All of this will be done using an ASP.NET solution with multiple websites, and we'll also include SSL. We'll be leveraging tooling that you're already familiar with and showing a couple of new techniques that can be used when use your interface tooling doesn't exist. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with ASP.NET, or ASP.NET Core website development and using Visual Studio, but no prior knowledge of Docker or Kubernetes is necessary. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to apply container technology into your development efforts with my course, Fundamentals of Docker and Kubernetes for .NET Developers, here at Pluralsight.
