How to install and configure Jenkins to build .NET apps on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Andrew Male

In the process of writing my posts (#1 and #2) on .NET Core and RHEL, it was made clear to me by several friends that I had neglected to use the de facto standard for continuous integration on Linux, Jenkins. Always happy to try out new (to me) tools, I settled in for what I was assured would be a simple configuration to test out my previous work in this bastion of automation. What is Jenkins? The first order of...

CI Security on Red Hat Enterprise Linux from a Windows Perspective

Andrew Male

The sheer number of tasks involved in building out automation infrastructure for a new organization never ceases to amaze me. One of the most often overlooked groups of tasks, however, is security. Though I am in no way a security expert, I know there are some basic steps we should take to protect ourselves and our precious systems. I also know that not everyone who administers RHEL systems has an extensive background working with Linux. If, like me, you’re normally...

Service Bus is, according to Microsoft, “...a generic, cloud-based messaging system for connecting just about anything.” Most commonly used as an Azure service, it can be an excellent tool for managing non-critical workloads within an application and offers the benefit of being AMQP compatible when compared to Amazon’s SQS.

Converting a .NET application to .NET Core (formerly DNX)

Andrew Male

In my first .NET core post, I set out on a journey to conquer the new world of .NET Core (formerly DNX) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). In my ignorance I believed I would do a short post on firing up RHEL, installing .NET Core, and then converting an application from .NET to .NET Core before adding it as a build job to a new TeamCity instance. The best laid plans seem to be the ones that get me...

A Windows Guy’s Guide: Setting up .NET Core on RHEL

Andrew Male

Despite spending plenty of time in Red Hat Linux while I was young, I have become an unabashed Windows environment super-user/programmer. Still, it’s hard to discount the multitude of ways that the *nix community stands ahead and alone, so when Microsoft and Red Hat announced their partnership to bring .NET to Linux, I had no choice but to take notice. As an experiment, I am going to go through setting up Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and .NET Core to...
