A web application isn't much use if it isn't running. We'll hand in our neckbeard cards and copy+paste our way out of the problem.
It's best practice for ASP.NET Core applications to have a "real" webserver in front of them. We'll configure NGINX for the job using Ansible. We don't hate all best practices.
Being Linux, some tweaks are needed right out of the box. Since we aren't proper neckbeards we rely on Ansible to ensure we get them right for each new machine.
How to buy a wildcard SSL certificate like grumpy old men.
We need a SSL certificate for our new site. Let's Encrypt makes it easy, right? Actually, it's complicated.
We setup TeamCity to deploy the latest build to Linux using SSH. TeamCity is so slick, it can make anyone look like a wizard. Even us!
We finally use our new SSH key to provision our Linux dev server with Ansible. Witness the "Hello World" of Ansible setups.
We create a new SSH key to use for authentication to a Linux dev server. We're rather unhip so we do it all from Windows.
We set up a repeatable CI build for our new .NET Core project so we can pretend we're professionals. We're old and crotchety though so we still use TeamCity instead of something hip.
Every journey begins with a single step. We wade through the myriad options of creating a new .NET Core project in 2020. We just make it look harder than it needs to be.
We introduce ourselves, and discuss what we're building and why.
Fun proposed architecture diagrams too!
