R1D13 Intro to C# and Getting Docker working with .NET Core and SQL Server for Linux

I signed up for the first of a three part course to learn more about C# on edX. I made it through module 1 already and was able to make it through writing a simple “hello world” style console app in C# with little trouble.

One of my favorite little bits of knowledge that I gained from the C# Intro course was the original name of C# was COOL.

I also made a little bit more progress on my work from yesterday trying to get ASP.NET Core working with SQL Server with Docker on Visual Studio for Mac. I ran into a couple hangups.

First, docker was complaining that it was not able to find any of the shared NuGet packages. I had to add /usr/local/share/dotnet to docker folders in order to get nuget to work.

I also needed to bump up the resources to get past an error saying sqlservr: This program requires a machine with at least 3250 megabytes of memory. in order to get SQL Server to run. It needs more than 3GB of RAM in order to start up.
