Latest commit f33d83d Mar 8, 2017


During our Visual Studio 2017 Launch event this year, Scott Hanselman presented our Dockder Tooling experiences.

This year, we built the technology stack for a fictional company named BikeSharing360, which allows users to rent bikes from one location to another.

BikeSharing360 is a fictitious example of a smart bike sharing system with 10,000 bikes distributed in 650 stations located throughout New York City and Seattle. Their vision is to provide a modern and personalized experience to riders and to run their business with intelligence.

In this demo scenario, we built several apps for both the enterprise and the consumer (bike riders). You can find all other BikeSharing360 repos in the following locations:

*Mobile Apps *Backend Services *Websites *Single Container Apps *Multi Container Apps *Cognitive Services Kiosk App *Azure Bot App

Multi Container Apps

Demo from Connect() 2016, where Donovan Brown opened an existing, "more complex" application than to demonstrate seetting up Continuous Delivery with Visual Studio 2017 RC. The project was then deployed to Azure Container Services, through the Azure Container Registry.

Building the project in a container

To validate the VSTS Build Steps will sucessfuly build the project, in a container, you can validate this locally:

How this works:

  • when you call docker-compose -f up, the image microsoft/aspnetcore-build:1.0-1.1 is attempted to be instanced.
  • The first time, microsoft/aspnetcore-build:1.0-1.1 isn't available compose up will build the image using .\build\Dockerfile
  • The root of the solution is volume mapped in
  • dotnet restore, dotnet publish -c release are executed

In the same folder as this file, call:

docker-compose -f up

directly on your dev machine

Once built, cd .\bin\Release\publishoutput\ From the published directory, dotnet marketing.dll This will run the site at http://localhost:5000

run in a container

Once built, docker-compose up -d Find the dynamically assigned port: docker ps
