By: Dirk Strauss, Jas Rademeyer

Overview of this book

.NET Core is a general purpose, modular, cross-platform, and open source implementation of .NET. With the latest release of .NET Core, many more APIs are expected to show up, which will make APIs consistent across .Net Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. This step-by-step guide will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The book starts with a brief introduction to the latest features of C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 before moving on to explain how C# 7 can be implemented using the object-oriented paradigm. You'll learn to work with relational data using Entity Framework and see how to use ASP.NET Core practically. This book will show you how .NET Core allows the creations of cross-platform applications. You'll also learn about SignalR to add real-time functionality to your application. Then you will see how to use MongoDB and how to implement MongoDB into your applications. You'll learn about serverless computing and OAuth concepts, along with running ASP.NET Core applications with Docker Compose. This project-based guide uses practical applications to demonstrate these concepts. By the end of the book, you'll be proficient in developing applications using .NET Core 2.0.

In this chapter, we had a look at installing Docker on your Windows 10 Pro machine. We also had a look at what Docker is and the benefits to developers. We then took a look at troubleshooting the setup of Docker on your local machine when the firewall seems to be the blocking issue. Then, we took Docker and created an ASP.NET Core MVC application that had Docker support added from the start. We also looked at how to add Docker support to existing applications. Finally, we set up Docker to integrate with GitHub and perform automated builds. We also had a look at how to pull the container from Docker Hub and run it in a container on your local machine.

Docker containers and Docker Hub are tools that developers can use to make their work much easier. The power of collaborating with such popular platforms such as GitHub and Docker leads to benefits that will increase productivity and profitability. Docker takes away all those compatibility headaches of deploying your application across...
