You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access so you can download on-site.
We complete our three month tour of ASP.NET Core. We are proud to have Jeff Fritz join us for an interactive session using the new RTM release.
.NET Core – http://dot.net/ this will take you to the home page for all .NET stuff including Visual Studio 2015 and Xamarin. If you want a link directly to the .NET download page you can go here: https://www.microsoft.com/net/core#windows
Docker v1.12 – Beta can be gotten to through the above link as well but the direct link is here: https://docs.docker.com/engine/getstarted/step_one/#step-1-get-docker
Part of the lab includes deployment to Azure and Docker containers. To use the most recent version of Docker you need windows 10 and hyper-v turned on.
If you don’t have windows 10 you can use the older version of Docker (v1.11). This doesn’t use Hyper-V. Instructions can be found here: https://docs.docker.com/v1.11/windows/
Docker Tools for Visual Studio 2015 – Jeff also recommends getting the toolkit at https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/0f5b2caa-ea00-41c8-b8a2-058c7da0b3e4.
