Introduction to Worker Services in .NET Core 3.1

Since .NET Core 3.0, released in September 2019, we have access to the Worker Service template when creating new .NET Core projects. Thanks to this template, we are able to create truly platform-independent worker services that can be installed as a Windows Service on Windows, or as a Daemon on Linux. If you need to perform some continues background processing or need to extract, transform and load some data: Worker Services are at your disposal! In this session, Johnny will show you many examples of how to build these Worker Services and how to deploy them on Windows, Linux and using Docker containers.
