Developing a Microsoft .NET Core Web API application with Amazon Aurora Database using AWS CDK

In our previous blog, we showed you how to build a Microsoft.NET Web API application with Amazon Aurora Database using AWS CloudFormation. In this blog, we will leverage the development capabilities of defining cloud infrastructure as code using AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) which provisions it through AWS CloudFormation. The AWS CDK is an open source […]

Developing a Microsoft .NET Core Web API application with Aurora Database using CloudFormation

Real world Microsoft workloads have a lot of Web APIs that are native to Microsoft methods for serving front-end applications (like ASP.NET, ASP.NET Razor/MVC, ReactJS or Angular Application). Even though there are customers who want to try serverless with AWS Lambda, they often have to continue to maintain many existing .NET web APIs. These applications […]

Working with dependency injection in .NET Standard: inject your AWS clients – part 2

In part 1 of this blog post, we explored using the lightweight dependency injection (DI) provided by Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection. By itself, this is great for libraries and small programs, but if you’re building a nontrivial application, you have other problems to contend with: You might have complex configuration needs (development versus production, multiple sources, etc.) How […]

Working with dependency injection in .NET Standard: inject your AWS clients – part 1

Dependency injection (DI) is a central part of any nontrivial application today. .NET has libraries like Ninject for implementing inversion of control (IOC) in their development and, as of .NET Core 1.0 (specifically, .NET Standard 1.1), lightweight DI can be provided by Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection. This was used primarily in the context of developing .NET Core web applications, but it can be […]

DateTime serialization changes in the AWS SDK for .NET and AWSPowerShell modules

Summary: This blog post describes best practices for using DateTime values in distributed .NET programming. It also highlights some of the recent, related changes in the AWS SDK for .NET and the AWSPowerShell modules. Today, it’s increasingly common to write code that interacts with external systems, and it’s very likely that these systems won’t share the […]
