This blog post contains a list of links to resources about Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). WSL allows running Linux, specifically Bash interactive shells and shell scripts, under Windows. Whenever possible, I use Bash shells and keyboard shortcuts in favor of the Windows user interface.
Because they are not specific to headless content management or .NET Core, my articles about WSL are on LinkedIn. Because WSL could be relevant to some .NET Core headless implementations, for example around developer operations, monitoring, and troubleshooting, I will try to maintain a list of resources about WSL here.
