How to configure your custom roslyn analyzer using an .editorconfig file

Roslyn Analyzers are extensions that analyze source code and report violations. Some analyzers are built-into VS (like the IDE analyzers that report style issues) and some are third party ones which can be installed (like StyleCopyAnalyzers, FxCopAnalyzers, etc.). Analyzers can be configurated using file(s) to allow end users to control the behavior of each analyzer and severity of reported diagnostics. This may be via an editorconfig or a ruleset file or even completely custom format specific to the third party analyzer package.

All the infrastructure in AWS must be created using IaC (infrastructure-as-code) and must be created using an Azure DevOps pipeline.

Provisioning resources on AWS using AWS CDK and Azure DevOps Pipelines

Introduction First of all let me tell you that I’m huge proponent of Terraform as a framework for defining infrastructure in code. One of the things that I like most about Terraform is that not only every major cloud provider (AWS, Azure, GCP) offers their own provider but each day more and more companies are starting to offer their own Terraform providers, and those are great news because with Terraform I can create almost any cloud infrastructure that I want and also a huge array of varied resources such as: VMware vSphere Virtual Machines, RabbitMq Queues, Grafana dashboards amongst many many others.
