A few months ago, we published an introductory lab (http://aka.ms/sflab1) to get you going with a stateless Service Fabric application. We’ve created Part II of the lab (Download instructions and code), walking you through building a stateful service. In this lab you’ll extend the stateless service created in Part I of the lab, which contains a single page application that allows voting on anything. You’ll learn about stateful services, versioning of the stored data using Bond, custom serialization, using immutable objects and using the reverse proxy for intra-cluster communication. The exercise will use Visual Studio’s Service Fabric tooling as well as the Service Fabric Explorer.
We estimate 60-90 minutes to complete this lab. We’d love to hear from you on your experience with the lab, and which topics you’d like to have labs for in the future.
