Getting your .NET Core application to run in a Docker cluster is only the beginning of a journey. It takes more to build and run your application in Azure using DevOps practices. In this session we will show you how we created a mission critical .NET Core application in a Kubernetes cluster in Azure using Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio Team Services. You will learn how to design your .NET application architecture to run on Azure, which software patterns to implement for environment flexibility, how to build Continuous Integration and Deployment pipelines for zero-downtime, provision your Infrastructure declaratively using ARM templates and what to do to integrate metrics and instrumentation in your application for real-time monitoring. We will share our lessons learned, so you can get a jump-start running your own application in a similar way using the Microsoft Platform.
