OpenShift Commons Briefing #66: Microservices, .NET Core 1.1, and Kubernetes on OpenShift

OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
Red Hat is leading the way in the Linux world yet again with our support for .NET, as Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the only commercial Linux distribution to feature full, enterprise-grade support for .NET Core. .NET Core 1.1 is now available (external version) supported on both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This second .NET Core release shows Red Hat’s continued commitment to opening up platform choices for enterprises seeking to use .NET in Linux environments, including container-centric operating systems. It’s been 5 short months since Red Hat launched the first commercially supported distribution of .NET Core on Linux. In that time, customer interest has continued to grow. Red Hat is an original member of the .NET Foundation Technical Steering Group, and as such we’re interested in your feedback to help us determine the future direction of .NET
In this briefing, Red Hat's Todd Mancini, Senior Principal Product Manager and Don Schenck, Developer Advocate for .NET on Linux discussed some of the new application development highlights in Microsoft’s .NET Core 1.1:
• Over 1,300 new APIs since .NET Core 1.0. • .NET Core 1.1 docker images from Red Hat’s container registry. • Safe side-by-side installation with .NET Core 1.0. • Performance improvements
If your development team is using a microservices-based approach where some components are built with .NET and others with Java, you can build and deploy on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Red Hatters, CNCF/Kubernetes project leads and numerous other members of the OpenShift Commons will be gathering together in Berlin for the upcoming OpenShift Commons Gathering co-located with Kubecon at the Berlin Congress Centre.
Don't forget to leave your feedback and suggestions for each video or in the comments section below. This will be incredibly important to shape this Special Interest Group and create sessions that fit the demands of all the OpenShift developers in the community.
