Linux for the .NET Developer

In 2017 Microsoft reported that 40% of Azure VMs run Linux, and in 2018, it was announced as 50% and expected to grow. .NET Core has changed much for the .NET Developer, and one of the most significant changes has been the adoption of Linux. Containers, Windows Subsystem for Linux, and support for tooling on Linux have opened many possibilities. All of this change is requiring developers to get up to speed on Linux and learn how to use it for development and deployment. In this talk, we are going to discuss ways to get started with Linux and distributions that make it a smoother transition from Windows. We will also discuss what development environments are available, along with the availability of familiar tools. At the end of the talk, you will have an understanding of the landscape and paths forward in your Linux journey.
