In .NET Core in during early development, we know that this is the future of .NET. We quickly began to build support for .NET Core, and can add support in early beta version of .NET Core. .NET Core 1.0 release after only a few months, we have released the first run for the AWS Lambda .NET Core non-server applications when.
