Today, many organizations actively move towards DevOps and continuous delivery. With increasing demands from customers and shareholders, time to market is more important than ever. One answer to the problem is containers and more specifically, Docker. Docker enables a simpler application architecture along with faster and more automated deployments.
In this Deep Dive you will learn how to use Docker in order to deliver solutions to the Windows platform. We will talk about how Visual Studio makes Docker simple to use throughout the entire development cycle. In addition, we’ll teach you how to implement a delivery pipeline using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) or Team Foundation Server (TFS) to deploy to any target platform. This includes both single Windows servers or machine clusters used by cluster managers such as Kubernetes or Service Fabric.
At the end of the day, you will have firm knowledge of how containers work on Windows, how to build Docker containers to run new or existing workloads as well as how to actually deploy your applications to various hosting solutions – both on-prem and in the cloud.
