There are 3 related but different topics.

Development of .net applications that will run on Amazon EC2
From the application side, there is almost no difference between development in AWS or in your private space.
If you write an application that can works out of your PC: use a database on a different server, run behind a load balancer, then your application is very likely able to run in Amazon.
Having said that, when you move out of your own PC into datacenter compatible development, and then to cloud computing, there are architectural considerations that transcend the code but impact it: how to manage sessions, how to manage the code base, how to deploy application changes over a cluster. This is out of scope for this question.

Development of .net code that manages the AWS resources and infrastructure
This is probably not what you asked for :)
You will want to use the .net sdk for management of AWS, get it here
https://aws.amazon.com/documentation/sdk-for-net/

Using Amazon application enablers in your .net app
AWS has quite a few cloud services that can enhance your application and make it faster, more scalable and even more secure. Beanstalk for example, can really change the way you deploy your apps. A partial list:  
S3 storage  http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/Welcome.html
NoSQL DynamoDB database https://aws.amazon.com/documentation/dynamodb/
RDS https://aws.amazon.com/documentation/rds/
Beanstalk https://aws.amazon.com/documentation/elastic-beanstalk/ 

Take your time to look at all of the services, https://aws.amazon.com/documentation/
