Scale your API quickly using Message Queues on AWS

APIs are easy enough to build, but making sure they can scale without breaking the bank can be difficult. While there are ways to auto-scale your API through containers/VMs with load balancers, it might be better to use a message queue. In this session, you'll learn how to build an .NET Core API that sends data to a message queue for processing through a .NET core console application with the .NET AWS SDK, rather just connecting straight to a database. Presenter: Nathan Westfall Nathan is the host of the "The Engineer of What?" podcast and makes his own XLR cables. 6:00 pm - Doors open and refreshments will be served 6:30 pm - Session start, meetup announcements 7:30 pm - Session wrap-up, closing comments Please note: For this session we will be meeting at the TEKsystems office at 15 British American Blvd, Latham 12159. Our usual meeting space undergoing renovations and that location will not be ready for September. The good people at TEKsystems will be our sponsor and host this month.
