Developing .NET Core 2.0 Web Applications on OpenShift

Today we’re going to create a .NET Core 2.0 Web Application using the JBoss Developer Studio and the aCute plugin (C# application development). We’ll deploy our application onto an OpenShift instance and continue to modify it while viewing the changes almost instantly. Although the initial setup will be quite involved, it will only need to be done once.
