In this post I'll discuss a technique I use occasionally to ensure that an ASP.NET Core app is able to start correctly, as part of a continuous integration (CI) build pipeline. These "smoke tests" provide an initial indication that there may be something wrong with the build, which may not be caught by other tests.
