Talk Title: C# Development on AWS with the Tools You Know (and Some Tools You Might Not)

Description: When switching to cloud development, you're required to learn new tools, new paradigms, and new coding patterns. But what about the tools you’re already familiar with? We’ll take a tour of some useful tooling available to C# developers working with AWS built around familiar stalwarts like Visual Studio, PowerShell, and the dotnet CLI. We’ll also meet some new favorites along the way as we show the minimal and easy code changes needed to transform an existing C# WebAPI project to run in a serverless architecture.
