A few months ago, they did a recording with me in Stavanger a city close to where my parents live and I grew up as a teenager. I had a lot of fun, and we even dragged the whole recording team up to Preikestolen, a very steep hike overlooking the beautiful fjords us Norwegians are so proud of. The video should come out soon and I’ll make sure to share it with you 🙂
Anyway! To the topic!
I’m excited to share with you that I’m speaking at DockerCon next month, together with Elton Stoneman- also a fellow MVP as well as Developer Advocate at Docker. We met each other at a DevOps conference in UK last summer (we were both speaking) and I’m thrilled to do a session together with him. It’s my first time doing a session together with another speaker and I expect it to be fun and a great opportunity to grow as a presenter.
Modernizing .NET Apps
Elton Stoneman, Docker|Iris Classon, In Love With Code LTD
Docker has the potential to revolutionize how we build, deliver, support and even design software. But it doesn’t have to be a violent revolution. The end goal might be breaking your existing ASP.NET monolith into microservices which run cross-platform on .NET Core, but the first step can be as simple as packaging your whole .Net Framework application as-is into a Docker image and running it as a container.
In this session, we’ll take an existing ASP.NET WebForms application and package it as a Docker image, which can run in a container on Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10. We’ll show you how to run the app and a SQL Server database in Docker containers on Windows, and how to use Docker Compose to define the structure of a distributed application.
Then we’ll iteratively add functionality to the app, making use of the Docker platform to modernize the monolith without a full rebuild. We’ll take a feature-driven approach and show you how Docker makes it easy to address performance, usability and design issues.
