Blog posts on desktop app modernization to Docker
This series of blog posts takes a VB6 application and converts it to a modern web application with RESTful endpoints, an Angular 6 client UI, ASP.NET Core server components, and readable code. Then puts the web app into a container--Docker for Windows--and builds it and runs it locally in the container. Finishes by pushing the container to Azure and running it from there.
