Re-post from http://opensourceforu.com/2017/07/amazon-brings-net-core-support-aws-cloud/

Encouraging developers to massively build cross-platform applications, Amazon has added .Net Core support to its AWS Cloud services. The series that has been upgraded with the new support includes the AWS CodeStar and AWS CloudBuild services.

“The support for .Net Core in AWS CodeStar and AWS CodeBuild opens the door for .Net developers to take advantage of the benefits of Continuous Integration and Delivery when building .Net based solutions on AWS,” said Tara Walker, technical evangelist, Amazon Web Services (AWS), in a statement.

The AWS team launched the CodeStar service back in April for Amazon EC2, AWS Elastic Beanstalk and AWS Lambda projects using five programming languages, including JavaScript, Java, Python, Ruby and PHP. Though the original list of supported languages was covering a large part, Amazon has now planned to target developers on Microsoft’s Azure by enabling .Net Core support.

Deploy code on Amazon EC2 and AWS Lambda

Developers can leverage the latest support to build and deploy their .Net Core application code to both Amazon EC2 and AWS Lambda. This ability comes through the CodeBuild service that brings two new project templates to AWS CodeStar for .Net Core applications. Also, there is sample code and a full software development toolchain to ease the development.

Importantly, the presence of Visual Studio 2017 is required alongside the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio 2017 to start building .Net Core applications for Amazon’s cloud solution. You can also deploy your existing .Net Core code enable your applications on AWS.

Angular 4.3 Now Available

AngularJS
Re-post from http://angularjs.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/angular-43-now-available.html

Angular version 4.3 has been released. This is a minor release following our announced adoption of Semantic Versioning, meaning that it contains no breaking changes and that it is a drop-in replacement for 4.x.x.

 
What’s new?
  • We are introducing HttpClient, a smaller, easier to use, and more powerful library for making HTTP Requests. Learn more about it from our docs
  • New router life cycle events for Guards and Resolvers. Four new events: GuardsCheckStart, GuardsCheckEnd, ResolveStart, ResolveEnd join the existing set of life cycle event such as NavigationStart
  • Conditionally disable animations via a new attribute, [@.disabled]
  • Support for the emulated /deep/ CSS Selector (the Shadow-Piercing descendant combinator aka >>>) has been deprecated to match browser implementations and Chrome’s intent to remove. ::ng-deep has been added to provide a temporary workaround for developers currently using this feature.
For the complete list of features and bugfixes please see the changelog.
