In this two-day hands-on lab, you will learn how to install and interact with Docker on your local workstation and in Microsoft Azure.

Finally, you'll learn how to use WebAssembly and Blazor to create a smart-client, browser-based app that interacts with your service-based backend system.

You will Learn:

  • How to install Docker and Kubernetes locally
  • How to build .NET Core apps that deploy to k8s
