Docker for .NET Developers

Last week I was presenting at the Ottawa IT User Group for .NET Developers on Docker for .NET Developers. We covered what docker is, how it fits into microservices, overview of using docker as a .NET Developer etc

Topics that we covered were

  • What is Docker
  • Images and Containers
  • Docker vs VM
  • Tooling around Docker (Visual Studio Tools for Docker)
  • Docker linking with other containers
  • How to use docker compose to link containers

Sample code for the demo on using Postgres, Dotnet core and docker-compose file are located at

If you would like to see me write more on docker, feel free to get in touch or comment.

Here are the presentation slides. Enjoy and feel free to share or clip them 🙂
