From VMs to Containers - Migrating Legacy Windows Applications

11th October 2017 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from LDNUG October

Want to learn how to successfully migrate legacy Windows applications? Don't miss Shahid Iqbal's talk to find out more!

Most .Net developers are familiar with Docker and the amazing power that containers bring to their applications and workflow.

Many would have seen a File > New Project scenario with .NET core applications being created and deployed to Linux containers but what if you have a large monolithic .NET 2.0 application that runs on VMs, do you have to re-write everything, maybe into microservices in .NET core before you can take advantage?

This talk will cover Windows containers, why you would consider using them, how to migrate existing applications to Windows containers - even those that you don’t have the source code for. We’ll also cover the options around which container types to run, which OS to use and any limitations of Windows containers.

Finally if time allows we can discuss how we can run these containers in production, maybe alongside some new .net core services running on Linux.
