I wrote this tweet roughly a week ago about the state of .NET development that I was seeing on Twitter:
I see ‘Minimal March’ as a developer challenge for me, I’m someone who has spent the majority of the last 15 years working in a version of Visual Studio and C#. Let’s take away those comfortable and productive tools and expose me to more operating systems and more ways that folks can write applications. In this post, I’m going to outline the parameters of this .NET development event and show my initial configuration on Linux. I built this configuration live on my Twitch stream on March 1, 2020.
When working with Docker, most folks are very familiar with deploying and building Linux-based containers. ASP.NET Core is a web framework that works great on both Windows and Linux, and can run on both the cross-platform .NET Core framework and the classic .NET Framework. Last week, I was asked about how to package that ASP.NET Core application such that it runs on .NET Framework on a Windows-based container with IIS. I took some time on my live-stream show and walked through the process.
After my last tip, I heard from Thomas and Shayne asking about alternative techniques for using npm and Gulp with ASP.NET Core. In this video, I explore both of their suggestions. Thanks for the tip guys!
