Here's the dirty little secret of developing apps for containers: it can be a HUGE pain. Even though you're developing the app on your machine, it's basically running in something that's not really actually your machine -- it's running in a container. Thankfully, Visual Studio 2019 has some great features for making the process of developing and debugging container apps a lot less painful. In this session, we'll do a demo of how to use these VS2019 container tools.

You will learn:

  • Why is it hard to debug containers
  • How to use Visual Studio container tools
  • What to do to enable container debugging
