In this scenario, you'll learn how to generate an optimized ASP.NET Core based Docker Container using the multi-stage build process. This allows a single Docker Build to use different base images, allowing the SDK to build the binaries but be removed from the final production-ready Docker Image.

The environment is connected to a sandboxed Docker instance, and the code for a default ASP.NET Core application is in the working directory. To view the code use ls and cat <filename>

The machine name Docker is running on is called docker. If you want to access any of the services then use docker instead of localhost or

Optimizing ASP.NET Core Docker Container

Step 1 of 5

Step 1 - Example Application

The example application is a ASP.NET Core MVC API. Packages and dependencies are downloaded from NuGet.

The application is configured to listen on port 5000. It has a single endpoint that returns the hostname of the container. You can see the endpoint code in Controllers/IndexController.cs
