Local Development with Azure API Management Gateway This was rather tricky to figure out so I thought I would share my experience with setting up Visual Studio with a local development subscription of Azure API Management (APIM) Gateway.

Docker: Jenkins Build Server on Windows Server Core Big fan of Jenkins! I've really enjoyed the flexibility that this CI server provides. While it's easy to run a Linux container with Jenkins and do .NET Core builds it's not possible to build traditional ASP.NET projects... unless you install Mono.. but I could never get that to work.
