Announcing C# Support for AWS Lambda

Today, we're excited to announce C# as a supported language for AWS Lambda! Using the new, open source .NET Core 1.0 runtime, you can easily publish C# code to AWS Lambda from a variety of popular .NET tools. .NET developers can now build Lambda functions and serverless applications with the C# language and .NET tools that they know and love. With tooling support in Visual Studio, Yeoman, and the dotnet CLI, you can easily deploy individual Lambda functions or entire serverless applications written in C# to Lambda and Amazon API Gateway.

Tips for a super new C# developer that you wish you had when you started?

I recently got a job where I'm going to be using C# and am now learning it. Before saying anything else I want to mention that I've tried learning Swift and still am, but C# is infinitely times better from my limited experience than swift. I have around 5 years experience with PHP, Javascript, and SQL. I'm still learning the language and don't know much but would like to know what I should know that tutorials probably won't teach me.
