Installing SQL Server for Linux on Docker Container

It is very common requiring MS SqlServer if you are developing ASP.NET web applications; because of this, having a local Sql Server is a great plus if you are developing web apps on ASP.NET Core on Mac, or Linux. One of the things to take in consideration is that we can make a “clean and rapid installation” using a Docker container. Take a look at this video for instructions!

  1. Installing Docker
  2. Installing Kitematic
  3. Installing and using SQL Server Client (sql-cli)
  4. Installing mssql extension on VSCode
  5. Configuring connection on VSCode
