About the Book

This is a work-in-progress e-book that covers everything you need to know about deploying ASP.NET 5 applications to production. It will cover:

  • .NET Core and DNX, and how the process model for .NET changes
  • How ASP.NET 5.0 applications run under IIS and the new HTTP server, Kestrel
  • Building ASP.NET 5.0 applications as part of your continuous integration process
  • Deploying applications using MSDeploy and Octopus Deploy
  • The new JSON-based configuration model, and other changes to be aware of

Right now we're in very early stages, so follow along and watch it evolve.
