Learn what you need to know to get the most out of this course.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, you should be familiar with the basics of Docker. If you're unfamiliar with Docker check out the course, Docker: The Basics. We'll be using the Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio 2017 IDE's. If you'd like to learn more about the IDE's, check out the courses, Learning Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio 2017: First Look. We'll be using Visual Studio Team Services to build and deploy applications and Microsoft Azure to host them.
For more information on Team Services and Azure check out the courses, Learning Visual Studio Team Services and Microsoft Azure for Developers. The sample application we'll be using is written on the .NET Core framework. To learn more about .NET Core, check the course, .NET Core overview. Finally, we will be creating and running a Kubernetes cluster in Azure. Don't worry, if you don't know a lot about these tools, I'll be covering them step by step in the course. Note that some of the services we are using are in a preview form at the time of this recording.
So there may be some slight differences in how the services function or web interfaces show in the videos versus how they function at the time of viewing. Check out the documentation listed at the end of the course to stay up to date with any updates.
