Application containers are the engine of DevOps - they let you deploy small units of change quickly, reliably and with minimal overhead. In this session we'll break down an existing monolithic ASP.NET app into separate self-contained components, and run them using Docker. We'll learn how Docker images work, how to package your own apps into images, and how to run and scale containers on Windows and Azure. The Docker image is a central point where existing dev and ops teams can meet, and automating the build of versioned images gives you a strong foundational deployment pipeline.
