How to get started with Go and .Net Core on AWS Lambda

To help Go developers ramp up on AWS Lambda, AWS is offering libraries, samples and tools for developing AWS Lambda functions at GitHub.

For .Net Core 2.0, developers can use any .Net Core 2.0 libraries or frameworks when writing functions for AWS Lambda. AWS said the easiest way to get started with C# and .Net Core 2.0 is to download the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio 2017, an extension to Microsoft’s signature IDE. .Net Core 2.0, which provides an open source, cross-platform implementation of Microsoft’s .Net software platform, became available in August.
