You've heard of Cloud Native, the continuous deployment and easy scaling of your server side code. And you've heard about Docker and microservices, but what are 12-factor apps?

The Twelve-Factor App methodology (, was created by engineers with experience of delivering apps on Heroku, and is a "recipe for success" when authoring code for cloud native senarios. In this presentation we will look at what a Twelve-Factor App is, and demonstrate how to meet the requirements when creating .NET applications. We will show examples using .NET Core, Brighter and Darker, authoring code to meet these requirements and show its deployment using containers.

By the end of this talk you will know enough to be able to approach another pillar of Cloud Native.
