Welcome to the second part about DevOps (here is the first one) and automating the deployment for the .NET Core apps with the usage of Docker, Travis CI and Rancher. The purpose of this tutorial is to show you that setting up the CI & CD for the projects that you’re working on is not as complex as it may seem at the first glance. The slides for the presentation can be found here.
Welcome to the first part about DevOps and automating the deployment for the .NET Core apps with the usage of Docker, Travis CI (I’ll also mention how to use BitBucket Pipelines) and Rancher. The purpose of this tutorial is to show you that setting up the CI & CD for the projects that you’re working on is not as complex as it may seem at the first glance.

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.
Many programmers tend to believe, that sticking to the particular technology of their choice while being reluctant to the other pieces of a rather complex process of providing a completed application is not their concern. DevOps, infrastructural concerns, cloud computing and so on – we got other teams able to do that, correct? Well, even if you do, you’re missing a huge piece of the knowledge that could save your day at some point in the future. Let me briefly present my point of view on the given subject.
Recently I’ve been doing a lot of DevOps in order to automate the continuous integration and deployment (CI & CD) of the microservices as much as possible. In this article, I’d like to share with you some of my experiences how to get started with creating your own deployment process and this is going to be the first part of the series of articles related to this process.
