There is an instant in time when an ASP.NET application is fully alive and configured but it still held in check and waiting for a signal from the starter's gun. This moment exists between the lines of code in Program.cs, and it is here where I've found a nice place to automatically run database migrations and seed a database based on command line arguments to the program.
