If you are in the process of moving an existing .NET application to Azure, it’s likely you’ll have to migrate an existing, on-prem SQL database as well. There are a few different ways you can go about this, so let’s go through them.
Some people say ‘friends don’t let friends right click publish’ but is that true? If they mean that there are great benefits to setting up a CI/CD workflow, that’s true and we will talk more about these benefits in just a minute.

With the release of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.8 brings improvements for web developers such as custom docker image tags during publish, zip push deployment for Azure functions, managing Azure functions application settings, and enabling Application Insights as part of publishing to Azure App Service. Also learn about managing user secrets in ASP.NET framework projects, optimizing build performance for solutions containing ASP.NET frame as well as author and source information for ASP.NET Core templates.
Provider pattern was introduced in ASP.NET 2.0 and it gives the developers the flexibility of where to store the state of ASP.NET features (e.g. Session State, Membership, Output Cache etc.). In ASP.NET 4.6.2, we added async support for Session State Provider and Output Cache Provider.

When considering how to implement your application with a relational database, it can change how you build it dramatically. Some of these challenges include adding an abstract implementation of the schema in the code, mapping data to objects, building queries, and preventing SQL injection attacks.
When creating an Azure App Service .NET Core is already pre-installed. However, only the 32 bit .NET runtime is installed. In this post we will look at a few ways that you can get a 64 bit runtime on Azure App Service
During the 2.1 timeframe we are hoping to have both 32 and 64 bit runtimes installed as well as enabling the portal experience to switch between the two.
