Creating a Serverless Application with ASP.NET Core, AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway

07 May 2017

In my previous blog post I gave an overview of how you can create a serverless application using .NET Core and AWS Lambda. In this blog post I will show a similar - yet quite different - programming model. Instead of using just plain .NET Core, I’ll be using ASP.NET Core with AWS Lambda. A quick reminder from my introductory blog post in this series may be in order.

Creating a Serverless Application with .NET Core, AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway

11 April 2017

Previously I gave an overview of the programming models when using NET Core with AWS Lambda, and I also showed how to create an image compressor in Lambda and C#. This time around we’ll put together a simple Web API with a couple of endpoints which can be called from any client application. The API I’ll create will utilize NodaTime library created by Jon Skeet to return a list of time zones based on the Time Zone database.

Compress images with C#, .NET Core, AWS Lambda and TinyPNG

In this blog post we will look at how you can create a simple AWS Lambda function in C# (and .NET Core) which will compress images uploaded to an S3 bucket using the TinyPNG API. The Lambda function will be configured to automatically be triggered whenever a new image is uploaded to the S3 bucket. I am using Visual Studio 2017, so ensure you have downloaded and installed the Preview of the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio 2017.

Getting started with .NET Core and AWS Lambda

This blog post will provide you with a brief introduction to using C# and .NET Core with AWS Lambda and also look at the different programming models available when using .NET Core with Lambda. The reason why I started looking into this was because I wanted a dead simple hosting solution for GeoToast. And yeah, it has been a while since I have written about GeoToast. I spent a month in Japan, and sightseeing was higher on my list of priorities than coding…
