The week in .NET – 3/22/2016
To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 3/15/2016.
Next week, many of us will be in San Francisco for the Build conference. This is a very exciting opportunity for us to present our latest work on .NET, and we hope to meet lots of you there. If you can’t be there with us, don’t worry, as the keynotes will be broadcast live, and breakout sessions will be recorded and available on Channel9.
We had to re-schedule the show we had planned for last week, but we’re back this week with Richard Kiene from Joyent, to talk about running .NET Core in the Joyent cloud.
Tool of the week: Octopus Deploy
Octopus Deploy is a fantastic tool that works with your continuous integration server to deploy applications through test, staging, and production environments. Because it’s so easy, you can deploy smaller units of change, more easily, and more often, and as a result move faster. Octopus Deploy is a commercial product that is free for small teams that handle 5 projects or less and deploy them to up to ten target machines.
