Running a Container on Azure App Service

9m 43s

Although Azure App Service supports many different programming languages and frameworks, such as .NET, Java, and Python, sometimes you might need a different development stack that isn’t directly supported by App Service. In these cases, the solution is to create a custom Docker container that has all of the software you need preinstalled. In this lesson, we’ll give you a demonstration of how to build and run a Docker container on Azure App Service.
