ASP.NET Core on Docker in Azure

This is a series of posts providing a step by step guide on creating a ASP.NET Core web app, then creating a Docker host in Azure to run it, finally publishing and running your ASP.NET app as a Docker image & container. I’ve split this into three sub-posts to keep it manageable & readable.

You do not need Windows  or Visual Studio for this exercise (welcome to the new Microsoft!), all tools used are open source and multi-platform, I’ll be using Windows for basic convenience. Naturally the Docker host will be on Linux.

The three parts are pretty much independent. If you already know ASP.NET Core or have an existing app you can skip part 1. If you already have a Docker host running somewhere (maybe not in Azure, heaven forbid!) then skip ahead to part 3.

You will need an Azure subscription for part 2, you can get a free subscription with $25 per month of credit via ‘Visual Studio Dev Essentials

Running your ASP.NET Core app in Docker

Final part of a series covering some of the fundamentals of ASP.NET Core, Docker and Azure. This part is fairly dependent on what we covered in part 1 and part 2. However if you want to skip ahead you can use my pre-created ASP.NET Core demo app on Github; https://github.com/benc-uk/dotnet-demoapp which you can clone and use to skip what was covered in part 1.
However we’re going to need a running machine with Docker engine on so skipping part 2 isn’t really an option
