DevOps is all about software delivery. Create an automated, streamlined path from development to testing to deployment — that's basically DevOps. Great. So how do you do it with ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core? How do you deploy the SQL Server schema? How do you deal with EF Core schema migrations? What about unit testing? How do you handle database connection strings? What about deployments to Azure? Don't worry. We've got ya covered. In this talk, Ben will walk you through creating an automated DevOps flow using Azure DevOps Server (aka. TFS2019) or Azure DevOps that will allow you to build, test, and deploy your ASP.NET Core & EF Core application.

You will learn:

  • How do you handle including database changes in your DevOps flow?
  • How do you handle multi-environment configurations with EF Core and ASP.NET Core?
  • Why do you care about DevOps and an end-to-end release pipeline?
