Deploy Docker images pushed to AWS Elastic Container Registry

Using containers in AWS is very easy using ECS. When EKS arrives, there will be even more options for you to choose from. You create a cluster, task definitions and services and ECS figures our where to run your container on a EC2 instance. I even takes care of the Application Load Balancer. However, for deployment the options are quite limited. Of course you can control everything with CloudFormation or Terraform, but how does the automation work in practice? Code Pipeline supports the whole from Code to Deployment flow, but how do you deploy a new container when you get the image pushed to the AWS Elastic Container Registry and the source and creation of the image takes place somewhere else.

Easy publishing to Docker with the .NET CLI

From day one when Microsoft announced ASP.NET Core (at that time ASP.NET 5 or vNext) I was excited running my application cross platform. Especially with the power of containerized applications provided by Docker, this will be a game changer. With the RTM release around corner I thought of creating a .NET CLI tool which allows you to publish your application easily to a Docker container. Not that it is difficult to do without tooling, but to make it as easy as possible for developers to publish their .NET Core applications to Docker.
