I remember a time, not so long ago, when automating the deployment of an application was like building a house of cards: it was slow and finicky and, if you managed to make it work at all, you would end up with a precarious mountain of scripts ready to crumble at the slightest movement. Fortunately, times have changed. Thanks to the rise in popularity of Continuous Delivery, the tooling around deployment automation has matured at an incredible pace and is now more capable than ever.
In this session, I'll show you just how far we've come with our deployment technology by building a complete deployment pipeline—from scratch—in less than 60 minutes. We'll take an ASP.NET Core web app from its repository to a container running in Azure using tools like Azure Pipelines, Docker and the Azure CLI. We'll be building, testing, packaging and provisioning Azure resources—all within a single YAML file.
So, if you want to see what a lean and mean modern deployment pipeline looks like, join me for the next hour and find out.
