Recently, I started researching tools and services for the build automation. Being a long user of TeamCity and currently Travis CI (also had some experience with Jenkins, AppVeyor and VSTS) I wanted to find out what else is there. Then I realized that there’s a build server built into BitBucket, thus I decided to give it a go.
Since ASP.NET Core became a truly cross-platform framework, we’re free to use other environments such as Linux in order to host our applications. This is a great opportunity not only to reduce the possible licensing costs but also to try out a new environment. In the video tutorial below, I’ll show you how to build a Docker image using ASP.NET Core, publish it to the Virtual Machine running in the Digital Ocean and use Nginx to expose the app to the world.
Welcome to the twenty episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will implement our custom “handler” that will be responsible for executing the given methods, dealing with exceptions etc.
Welcome to the eighteenth episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will finalize the basic CRUD for the Driver type, implement extension methods for the repository and build custom middleware in order to deal with exceptions.
Welcome to the seventeenth episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will mostly talk about the boundaries and responsibilities of the application services. Eventually, we will implement some helper code to automatically assign the authenticated user id to the given command.
Welcome to the sixteenth episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will implement the login endpoint in our API, discuss the caching mechanism and how to initialize the application with basic data.
