.NET 5.0 on Google Cloud

.NET 5.0 was released just a few days ago with many new features, improvements, C# 9 support, F# 5 support, and more. .NET 5.0 is the first release of the unified .NET vision that was announced last year. Going forward, there will be just one .NET targeting Windows, Linux, macOS, and more.

Google Cloud already has support for different versions of .NET. You can run traditional Windows based .NET apps on Windows Servers in Compute Engine or on Windows Containers in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). For modern Linux based containerized .NET apps, there’s more choice with App Engine (Flex), GKE and my favorite Cloud Run. Not to mention, the .NET Core 3.1 support in Cloud Functions is currently in preview for serverless .NET functions.

In the rest of the blog post, I want to show you how to deploy .NET 5.0 to Cloud Run. Cloud Run makes it really easy to deploy and scale containerized apps on a fully managed platform.
