Spinning Up .NET Core on Amazon Linux

Simple steps to get going.

  1. Create the Amazon Linux Instance via the Console, CloudFormation or the CLI.
  2. Log in to the instance using SSH or EC2 Instance Connect (browser).
  3. Run the following:
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo yum install git -y
sudo rpm -Uvh https://packages.microsoft.com/config/centos/7/packages-microsoft-prod.rpm 
sudo yum install dotnet-sdk-3.1 -y

# optionally test the installation
cd ~
mkdir -p projects/hello && cd projects/hello
dotnet new console
dotnet run

# optionally remove the directory
cd ~
rm -rf projects
