    👉 **Building .NET Core Apps using AWS and the Serverless Framework**
    Jon has been building serverless applications for over 18 months, including simple APIs providing data for a front-end, to event-driven data pipelines providing new insights and applications. In this talk Jon will introduce the basics of serverless development and explain how to get up and running with the Serverless Framework on Amazon Web Services.
    He will reveal how his team succeeded in deploying a critical service into production in less than two weeks and share some of the hard-learned lessons gleaned on the way.
