After a quick demo of working with Docker images in Visual Studio, Paul Yuknewicz shows Scott Hanselman how the Docker for Visual Studio Code extension makes it easy for you to build, debug, and diagnose containerized apps. Paul will also show how the extension helps you deploy a container to Azure Container Instances.

Caching can make your website run faster, it can improve your desktop application, and it can reduce the stress on your database.

Basically, if you figure out caching, you can dramatically improve how well your application scales. In this video, we are going to look at how to use Redis to quickly and easily cache our data. I think you will be shocked by how easy this turns out to be.

Tim Corey shows us how to get started.

Chad Metcalf from Docker joins Scott Hanselman to show how to use the Docker CLI to deploy a container to Azure Container Instances (ACI). Using only the Docker CLI, Chad deploys a Minecraft image to ACI and then shares the public IP address with Scott so he can join in the wacky, blocky world!

ACI provides general-purpose, serverless containers-as-a-service that can be used with Logic Apps, App Service, Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Functions, and other platforms in Azure to serve dev, test, and production workloads. Use ACI for deploying build/test containers, host backend APIs, or as part of a workflow.
