This workshop is aimed at software engineers and architects who are interested in learning container technologie. It focuses on .NET and Microsoft tooling, but the learnings can be used anywhere.

The workshop is run fully online, using Zoom and various online collaboration tools.


  • Get hands-on experience supporting DevOps practices with available tools.
  • Understand the implications for DevOps teams to build, deploy and run container based solutions in a cloud environment.
