"DevOps with ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core" by Ben Day

DevOps is all about software delivery. Create an automated, streamlined path from development to testing to deployment -- that's basically DevOps. Great. So how do you do it with ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core? How do you deploy the SQL Server schema? How do you deal with EF Core schema migrations? What about unit testing? How do you handle database connection strings? What about deployments to Azure? Don't worry. We've got ya covered. In this talk, Ben will walk you through creating an automated DevOps flow using Team Foundation Server 2017 (TFS2017) or Visual Studio Team Services that will allow you to build, test, and deploy your ASP.NET Core & EF Core application.
