ASP.NET 7, dotnet CLI, Docker for SQL Server, and Visual Studio Code are all tools that can greatly improve your development experience when working with any operating system. In this blog post, we will explore how these tools can be used together on any operating system to create, deploy, and manage SQL Server-based applications.
ASP.NET 7 is a popular web development framework that allows you to build dynamic, feature-rich web applications using the .NET ecosystem. With the release of ASP.NET 7, it is now possible to build and run ASP.NET applications on any operating system, including Linux and macOS.
The dotnet CLI (Command Line Interface) is a tool that allows you to perform various tasks related to .NET development, such as creating new projects, building and running applications, and managing NuGet packages. The dotnet CLI is particularly useful for automated builds and continuous integration scenarios, as it can be easily invoked from the command line or a script.
Docker is a containerization platform that allows you to package and deploy applications in lightweight, isolated containers. Docker for SQL Server is a version of the popular database management system that has been optimized for use with Docker. This makes it easy to deploy and manage SQL Server-based applications in a containerized environment.
Finally, Visual Studio Code is a lightweight, cross-platform code editor that is well-suited for .NET development. It has a rich set of features, including code completion, debugging, and integration with Git, making it an excellent choice for ASP.NET 7 development.
By using ASP.NET 7, dotnet CLI, Docker for SQL Server, and Visual Studio Code together, you can build and deploy powerful, scalable SQL Server-based applications on any operating system. Whether you are a seasoned .NET developer or new to the ecosystem, these tools can help you get the most out of your SQL Server development efforts.
