Containerization of .NET Core Application on Azure
Thursday, November 28
2:00 – 3:00 PM ET

Presenter: Faheem Javed

.NET Core allows you to create cross-platform applications that run on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. Traditionally, applications were deployed as an on-premises web server, such as IIS. Docker Containers allow you to deploy your applications in a contained and portable manner that can run anywhere including on cloud, such as on Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure offers Azure Container Registry (ACR) and Azure Container Instances (ACI) to work with containers. ACR lets you store and manage container images, and ACI lets you run containers on Azure without managing servers. Join us for a webinar where we’ll discuss how to containerize .NET Core applications on Azure.

Duration: 60 minutes
