AWS Open Sources Additional Parts of Its.NET Porting Assistant

Amazon Web Services (AWS), the latest component of the tool, has made its Porting Assistant (GUI) open-sourced.
The Porting Assistant for.NET was introduced last July. It scans apps and generates.NET Core compatibility assessment reports. This helps speed up porting to the new platform –.NET Core, its successor, and.NET 5 — which is running on Linux.
AWS had previously opened sourced the tool’s database store and, later, the client and sourcecode analyzer used in the assessment APIs. PortingAssistant.UI is the latest component to join open source. It provides the source code for the tool’s UI.
AWS UI, which offers React components to Web developers, was also outsourced. These components were used in.NET porting tool. It was built using React and the Electron application framework.
AWS stated that AWS UI is a collection React components that create intuitive, responsive, accessible user experiences for web apps. AWS UI is available under Apache 2.0 open-source license. This AWS UI release is only the first step in a larger project to create an open-source design system. Keep checking back for more updates in this area!

AWS Open Sources More Parts of Its Porting Assistance for.NET Tool from Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now available to the open-source community. The Porting assistant for.NET tool, which was created to assist users in porting their old.NET Framework apps to the new.NET Core framework. AWS launched Porting Assistant.NET this summer to help users analyze older apps and estimate the effort required to port them to.NET Core. This tool will soon be part of the unifying.NET 5. Although it does assist with the porting process it doesn’t do any code conversion. AWS stated that the tool is different from other.NET Framework to-.NET Core tools on the market (including one from Microsoft). This is due to its ability to assess the entire tree of package dependencies, as well as common functionality like detecting incompatible APIs. AWS claims that it uses solution files for the starting point, making it easier to assess monolithic solutions with many projects. This eliminates the need to analyze and aggregate information about individual binaries. AWS stated in a blog post that the Porting Assistant for.NET analyzes NuGet packages dependencies and API usage within.NET Framework applications at a solution level. The assistant helps with the porting process by removing the manual effort required to convert project files to a new.NET Core format. It also assists in upgrading NuGet packages when there are compatible replacements. AWS has now contributed the source code as well as compatibility analysis components to the assistant, which it had already open-sourced. The company stated that it is open sourcing the components to encourage community users and to share porting best practices with recommendations, and further collaborate on the project via reviews and comments via GitHub issues. The three components are now available under the Apache 2.0 license.

  • Porting Assistant for.NET Client: Back-end assessment APIs, project porting code, and back-end assessment APIs to make it easier to interface with the assistant from an application’s source code. It’s here.
  • Codelyzer: This is the source code analyzer used in the assessment APIs. It can be found here.
  • Porting Assistant for.NET Datastore – The original repository containing data sets used in compatibility assessments, as well as a new Recommendations Folder for contributing to the NuGet or API replacement data. It can be found here.

AWS stated that they are excited about the Porting assistant for.NET and the positive response from the.NET community. “As you know, we will be maintaining a roadmap within the repositories. The future direction of the assistant includes IDE integrations, a command line interface, and improved support to scan source code repositories (public or private). “We are aware that porting.NET applications is a broad topic and that a community-based approach is necessary to tackle it. We plan to continue to work on extensibility, such as allowing users to add logic to expand the analysis. The team welcomes all feedback and contributions in these areas and more and looks forward to further collaboration with the community.

AWS Open Sources Documentation, Invites community Edits

Amazon Web Services has made a lot of documentation open-sourced, and placed it on the GitHub platform. Developers are invited to pull requests and help with bug fixes, edits, and so forth.
AWS previously made available AWS SDK developer guides open-sourced, but it just added more than 140 developer and user guides to repos located under the awsdocs organisation.
Chief Evangelist Jeff Barr invited developers and others to join the core team in maintaining and improving documentation through the usual source code contribution process that involves forks or pull requests.
Barr wrote last week that “you can fix bugs, improve code samples (or send new ones), add detail and rewrite sentences or paragraphs in order to increase accuracy and clarity.” You can also view the commit history to find out more about new features and service launches, and track any improvements to the documents.
AWS documentation teams will respond to pull requests within 48-hours. They will decide whether to accept, reject, or contact the submitter.
Barr stated that a steady stream, focused, small-sized pull requests is better than a single request with hundreds of edits.
The “Amazon Web Services – Documentation” organization on GitHub lists 148 repositories. These include the AWS CloudFormation User Guide and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams docs. C#, Java, Go, and Python are the most popular languages. The People section lists seven developers.

AWS One-Stop Shop For Serverless Apps Available Now

The popularity of serverless computing in cloud computing platforms like Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) has led to the announcement that the AWS Serverless App Repository, which is the company’s one-stop shop for such applications, is now generally available.
The AWS Serverless Application Repository allows users to discover, configure, deploy, and publish serverless apps. These applications are technically not “serverless” in that they are hosted on AWS servers. The term refers to the fact that users don’t have to manually provision, scale up, configure, or manage dedicated servers. Lambda functions, which are code that is executed in response to events and commands, can also be used for serverless computing.
AWS stated in a blog last week that the Serverless Application Repository has a growing collection serverless applications for popular use case like stream processing, media processing and monitoring. You can quickly find and deploy applications with the AWS Lambda console and AWS CLI. Additionally, you can continue to use existing AWS tools and third-party tools to manage deployed resources.
Developers and other users have the ability to publish their apps to the repository. They can be shared publicly, privately, or with selected teams and organisations.
“As a consumer you will have access to a rich ecosystem of serverless components and applications that will be a great complement to your machine-learning, image processing and general-purpose work. You can either configure them and consume them as is or you can take them apart and add features and submit pull requests for the author,” AWS stated.
“As a publisher, your contribution can be published in the Serverless Application Repository easily. Simply enter a name, description, and select some labels to increase discoverability. Then, select the appropriate open source license from a drop-down menu and provide a README for users to get started. Next, you will need to link to your source code repository, select a SAM template and designate a semantic copy.
AWS stated that the repository is free and users do not have to pay extra for AWS resources used in their applications. The repository is available in several AWS regions throughout the United States and around the globe.

AWS on Compute Power Trip: Adding 5 New EC2 Types Amazon Web Services (AWS), added five new instance types this week to its Elastic Compute Cloud. (EC2), along with other enhancements that will increase its flexibility in its compute offerings. These announcements were made Tuesday at the company’s 2020 reInvent conference. This year’s event was held online for three weeks due to COVID-19 restrictions. The five new EC2 instances, each offering different compute, storage and cost benefits, add to the already extensive range of AWS compute options. The company announced that AWS already offers more compute instances types than any other cloud provider. Its instances are based on the fastest processors of Intel, cost-optimized instances using AMD processors, NVIDIA’s most powerful GPU instances, instances that offer up to 400 Gbps network performance, and the only Arm-based instances available in the cloud offering 40% better price performance thanks to AWS-designed AWS Graviton2 CPUs. These are the new EC2 instances:

  • C6gn is powered by Arm-based AWS graviton2 processor. It is designed for network-intensive workloads like data modeling and high-performance computing. However, it has better packet processing capabilities than other instances. According to AWS, C6gn allows users to “consolidate their workloads onto smaller instances or smaller instance size, and reduce infrastructure cost.”
  • G4adm, powered with AMD GPUs: These instances are designed for graphics-intensive applications and can render high-quality images for virtual worksstations, game streaming, and other jobs. However, they offer a “45% better price performance than NVIDIA-powered instances (namely G4dn).
  • M5zn powered by Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs: Designed for high compute performance and high network throughput but with less memory. This allows users to avoid spending more computing resources than they actually need to perform complex calculations and analyze real-time data for their financial, analytical, and gaming workloads.
  • D3/D3en, powered with Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs: Storage-intensive workloads that require high network speeds. These instances offer better storage and network performance than the D2 instance.
  • R5b, powered with Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs: Designed to handle large relational database workloads that use Elastic Block Store storage (EBS), R5b promises a triple “instance-to EBS” performance improvement over the current R5 instance. AWS stated that this will significantly increase performance for large database workloads that process large amounts of data in memory.

AWS also announced other compute news. The company said it is working on smaller versions of its AWS Outposts product, which will be released sometime in 2021. AWS Outposts allows organizations to run the full AWS cloud from their premises using server racks that AWS delivers and installs at the location they choose. AWS Outposts currently comes in a 42-rack unit measuring 80 inches high, 24 inches wide, and 48 inches deep. AWS is currently developing two sizes of server racks: a 1.75-inch single-rack server and a 3.5 inch two-rack server. These new forms consume significantly less power and bandwidth than the existing AWS Outposts product. AWS is expanding its “Local Zones” footprint. Although they are not fully-fledged AWS regions, local zones can extend AWS’ capabilities to densely populated areas like Los Angeles. They are designed for applications that are sensitive to latency and throughput and require close proximity to end users than the existing AWS regions. AWS launched Local Zones in Houston and Boston, along with another dozen opening next year at re:Invent.

AWS offers Visual Studio Code Toolkit Visual Studio Code is a lightweight, open-source, cross-platform code editor which has quickly become the No. With the availability of a toolkit, the tool that was once the No. 1 tool for many developers is now available on Amazon Web Services Inc. cloud. The preview version of the plug-in or extension was released in November 2018. It is specifically called AWS Toolkit For Visual Studio Code. It allows developers to create, debug, and deploy applications on Amazon’s cloud. 1 go-to platform. It also helps developers.

  • Step-by-step debugging in a Lambda environment allows you to test your code locally
  • Deploy applications in the AWS Region of your choice
  • You can invoke Lambda locally or remotely
  • Specify function configurations, such as an environment variable and event payload.

It is developed under an open-source Apache License 2.0 license. The project has received 602 stars on GitHub and resources are available such as:

  • A Quick Start Guide provides a summary of the toolkit as well as common tasks.
  • A User Guide with instructions on how to get up and running
  • Debugging NodeJS Lambda Functions
  • Debugging Python Lambda Functions
  • Debugging.NET Core Lambda functions

A July 11 announcement posted details the prerequisites for setting up an AWS account, access key, and connecting to the toolkit. It also outlines steps to create serverless AWS apps. In addition to serverless applications that were available at the initial GA launch, AWS now supports.NET, Node.js, and Python applications. AWS stated that the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio Code offers an integrated experience for creating serverless applications. You can quickly get started with the built-in project templates, which use the AWS Serverless Application Model to define and configure resources. The integrated toolkit provides a step-by-step experience for debugging serverless applications using the AWS CLI. It also makes it easy to deploy your applications directly from the IDE.
