TECH SPOTLIGHT

.NET is one of the more popular languages with AWS customers, and we've been supporting it with dev tools and the AWS SDK for over ten years. Expanding our support for .NET, AWS joined the .NET Foundation as a corporate sponsor in 2019. The .NET Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization created in 2014 to foster open development and collaboration around the growing collection of open source technologies for .NET.

We also had some exciting releases in the .NET space. One of our favorites is the Porting Assistant for .NET. This analysis tool scans .NET Framework applications and generates a .NET Core compatibility assessment, helping you port your applications to Linux faster.

Porting Assistant for .NET
Deploy your .NET Core Application on Amazon EKS on AWS Fargate

You can find out more from the video above, where Steve Roberts goes through the process of porting an outdated version of the popular open-source project nopCommerce over to .NET Core. Once you have ported your application to .NET core it might be a good time to think about containerizing your application. The video on the right is a tutorial that shows you how you can Deploy your .NET Core Application on Amazon EKS on AWS Fargate.

If you are interested in learning more about AWS and .NET, we have created over 100 tutorial videos and compiled them into a YouTube Playlist. Each video is between 5-15 minutes and consists of a walkthrough and demo of a single AWS service. These videos will quickly get you up to speed with everything that is possible with .NET on AWS and ensure you get the most out of AWS as a .NET developer.
