An Azure Most Valuable Professional based in Vancouver, Canada, Chu works almost exclusively on cloud-based solutions these days. He has expertise with ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core, Node, Angular, React, Azure and AWS. (He also had a top-selling Windows Phone app called Wonder Reader at one point.) He’s spoken at conferences on Azure, Docker, Windows Containers, the Microsoft Bot Framework and Cognitive Services.

On his blog, Chu has a number of posts on his work with containers. Given Microsoft’s work with the Kubernetes container orchestrator, Chu’s recent how-to post on using Kubernetes with ASP.NET Core is timely:
