More information about the topic and event:

Zero Trust is a security model centered on the idea that access to data should not be solely made based on network location. It requires users and systems to strongly prove their identities and trustworthiness and enforces fine-grained identity-based authorization rules before allowing them to access applications, data, and other systems. With Zero Trust, these identities often operate within highly flexible identity-aware networks that further reduce surface area, eliminate unneeded pathways to data, and provide straightforward outer security guardrails. 

We’ll be talking about three main topics:

  • What is Zero Trust 
  • Zero Trust principles at work within AWS (a.k.a. “Zero Trust OF the cloud”) 
  • AWS Zero Trust solutions for customers (a.k.a. “Zero Trust IN the cloud”)

What AWS offers for .NET developers and modern .NET applications?

.NET is Microsoft’s free, open-source platform used by many organizations worldwide. Initially, .NET was a Windows-only platform, but today you can write .NET apps on Windows, Linux, or MacOS.  

Running .NET on Azure is a common choice, but did you know that AWS is a member of the .NET Foundation and that .NET runs great on AWS? This session will discuss the experience of being a .NET developer working on Mac and using AWS. Like Azure, AWS has a good set of .NET SDKs to connect your apps to AWS services and build cloud-native apps beyond utilizing the cloud only as an infrastructure.  

In addition, we will talk about the broader strategy of moving applications to the cloud and the different options we’ve seen in organizations using multiple cloud vendors. 

What will you learn:

  • How developer experience looks like for .NET developers using MacOS and AWS 
  • Why AWS is an excellent option for .NET apps  
  • How to leverage AWS cloud-native services to build modern .NET applications
