Lee's Sessions

  • ASP.NET Core + React Equals Awesome

    Learn how to make ASP.NET Core and React sing together! Getting React into your ASP.NET Core app can me a little tricky. There is a bunch of stuff in a base ASP.NET Core MVC Project that you just don't need, and some stuff that will need to be added. We'll walk through all of it and I'll show you how to make the two work together to make a very slick pair. You should leave with a basic understanding of how to make these two technologies blend to make an awesome development experience!

  • Dockerize Your Development

    It works on my machine. We've all heard it. Most of us have said it. It's been impossible to get around it... until now. Not only can Docker-izing your development environment solve that issue, but it can make it drop-dead simple to onboard new developers, keep a team working forward and allow everyone on the team use their desired tools! I will show you how to get Docker set up to use as the run environment for your projects, how to maintain the docker environment, and even how easy it will be to deploy the whole environment to production in a way that you are actually developing in an environment that isn't just "like" production. It IS the production environment! You will learn the basics of Docker, how to use it to develop and how to deploy your "development" environment as the production environment!
