Azure Fast 7 - the fastest & easiest way to get your Web apps onto Azure

The world of web application development is going through rapid evolution and it's impossible to keep current with developments in all areas.

Wouldn't it be nice if your could shadow someone as they make the journey and show you the steps they took?

Meet Hugh, a fictitious .Net Developer as he goes on a journeys to explore different ways to deploy web apps onto Azure. He starts with the basics of File-> Publish and as he learns more about DevOps and continuous delivery, so too does the complexity of his deployments evolve. However he finally settled on the easiest and fastest way to get his apps onto Azure.

In this hour long seminar we explore the new Asp.Net Core 1.0 cross-platform framework and how this works well with Team Services, Release Manager, Git and GitHub, and look at more advanced deployment scenarios with NuGet packaging and Octopus Deploy.

We also look at templated projects and SPAs for Angular 2 and React that work well with Asp.Net Core, and demonstrate builds on Windows, Mac Os X and Linux to see which models work best for each Platform.

We conclude with a lessons on simplicity. Building good software takes it's foundations from getting the small steps right.
