In this demonstration-heavy session, Martin Beeby will illustrate our latest techniques, tools, and libraries for developing a .NET application on AWS. From within Visual Studio, we will look at three different ways to run your .NET applications and show you how to integrate with various AWS services, including Logging, Managed SQL Server and Machine Learning Models. We will cover ways to build and run serverless and containerised applications as well as show you how you can move apps to the cloud.

About Martin Beeby:

I’ve been a developer since I was 16. Having no garage, unlike my American counterparts, I began developing small sites, apps and hacks from the comfort of my bedroom.

My focus back then was pretty much the same as it is now – finding new ways of solving annoying problems. Early on, this involved discovering how to send SMS messages for free by piggybacking on a service owned by HMV. (This was back when an SMS could cost up to 30p.)

The resulting service – ZipSMS – grew to capture around 1% of all texts sent each day. It also captured HMV’s attention and, while they were surprisingly good about it, ultimately this meant the demise of that particular brainchild.

Since then, my career has followed roughly the same path – find stuff that needs fixing and then use technology to fix it.

Today, I’m a Developer Evangelist for AWS. I spend most of my time talking to developers about new tools, languages and products we’re launching and getting their feedback. This is invaluable in ensuring we create the best products we can and that developers get the most value out of them.

While I work across all of our technologies, my focus is .net development. I regularly speak, blog and produce videos about all aspects of Cloud development and implementation.
