Shifting gears for .NET: a changed application landscape for .NET developers

Track 2 | 11:15


The landscape of distributed applications is rapidly changing from server-based to using clusters of containers and server-less computing. It is no longer enough to view .NET as the central framework for building server applications. Instead .NET is becoming a means to create cross-platform distributed logic, capable of being run in Docker containers and server-less scenarios. This session will focus on providing an overview of the changing world for .NET developers, which has cluster technology like Azure Container Service, Service Fabric and Function Apps for hosting. You will learn how .NET Core and Docker play a strategic role in packaging, deploying and running modern applications now and in the near future.
