Over the past weekend, I was playing around with deploying .NET Core Docker images to Amazon AWS. I wanted to utilize their EC2 Container Repository (ECR) to keep everything self-contained. My initial tinkering turned out pretty well. I’ll have a better walk-through once I have everything working as I want.
At any rate, here are a few notes I made to myself for the steps I went through, which I thought I’d share. These steps detail building/deploying Docker containers to AWS using EC2 with the EC2 Container Repository (ECR). Docker images were made directly from VS2017 using Docker CE (Docker Compose).
