Tasks for Amazon S3, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, AWS CodeDeploy, AWS Lambda and AWS CloudFormation and more, and running commands in the AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell module and the AWS CLI.

AWS .NET Tools and Libraries for AWS Lambda

These are AWS libraries, blueprints, and tools to support development and deployment of AWS Lambda functions.

Libraries & Blueprints

Amazon.Lambda.*Events contain classes that can be used as input types for Lambda functions that process various AWS events.
The AWS .NET Lambda Annotations for .NET is a new programming model for writing .NET Lambda functions. It allows for idiomatic .NET coding patterns and uses C# source generator technology to bridge the gap between the Lambda programming model to the more idiomatic programming model.
This library makes it easy to run ASP.NET Core Web API applications as a Lambda function with API Gateway or an ELB Application Load Balancer. It allows .NET Core developers to create "serverless" applications using the ASP.NET Core Web API framework and writes CloudWatch Log events by automatically forwarding the log messages to Lambda’s logging API.
This library integrates the .NET logging framework with the Lambda logging API. It allows applications to use the standard .NET logging functionality to write CloudWatch Log events by forwarding the messages from the .NET ILogger API to Lambda’s logging API.
AWS Lambda Blueprints are used for setting up new .NET Core projects for AWS Lambda. They are defined in a generic form so that they can be exposed through Visual Studio or the dotnet CLI with the command dotnet new.
dotnet new -i Amazon.Lambda.Templates::*

Tools & Container Images

This tool extension deploys AWS Lambda .NET Core projects  directly to the AWS Lambda service or through AWS CloudFormation after building and packaging up the project.
dotnet tool install -g Amazon.Lambda.Tools
The AWS Lambda Tools for Powershell can be used to create and deploy AWS Lambda functions written in PowerShell.
The AWS .NET Mock Lambda Tool for .NET is a testing tool that can be used to load a .NET Core Lambda project and execute the selected code inside an emulated Lambda environment. An IDE that is attached to the process hosting this tool can then debug and step through the .NET Core Lambda code. The tool is optimized for quick local debugging with minimal dependencies.

The source code for building Docker images used in Lambda to run image-based developments. For .NET developments, the Docker image used to deploy those developments in Lambda is a based on an Amazon Linux base image.

AWS SDKs and High Level Clients for .NET

The AWS SDK for .NET enables .NET developers to easily work with Amazon Web Services and build scalable solutions with Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda and more.

AWS X-Ray helps developers analyze and debug distributed applications. With X-Ray, you can understand how your application and its underlying services are performing to identify and troubleshoot the root cause of performance issues and errors.

Client-side encryption library designed to make it easy to encrypt and decrypt data using industry standards and best practices.

You can use CLI tools like nuget and dotnet to publish and consume packages from AWS CodeArtifact.
dotnet tool install -g 
The AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell and PowerShell Core let developers and administrators manage their AWS services from the PowerShell scripting environment.
The AWS Lambda Tools for Powershell can be used to create and deploy AWS Lambda functions written in PowerShell.

Infrastructure As Code (AWS CDK)

The AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is an open-source software development framework enabling you to define your cloud application resources using familiar programming languages, including C#.
Describes all the API operations for the CDK in detail. Also provides sample requests, responses, and errors for the supported web services protocols.

Modernization Tools

AWS App2Container is a command line tool to analyze your applications. It automatically generates a container image configured with the correct dependencies, network configurations, and deployment instructions for Amazon ECS or Amazon EKS.
Porting Assistant for .NET quickly scans .NET Framework applications to identify incompatibilities with .NET Core, finds known replacements, and generates a detailed compatibility assessment to jump-start your porting effort.
AWS Microservice Extractor for .NET simplifies the process of re-architecting applications into
smaller code projects. Modernize and transform your .NET applications with an assistive tool that analyzes source code and runtime metrics to create a visual representation of your application and its dependencies.
Using this calculator, you can estimate the cost of modernizing your Microsoft workloads to a new architecture that uses open-source software and cloud-native services on the AWS Cloud. It enables you to assess the benefits of using technologies built for the cloud, which can lead to a reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO), elimination of software license management, and an increase in developer productivity.
