Brief Overview

In this talk we look at Azure Functions, the young, cool cousin of Azure's battle-tested and much loved WebJobs.


Azure Functions is the young and cool cousin of our battle-tested and much loved WebJobs. Azure Functions introduces an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that provides a radical new approach on how you set up and run tasks, create APIs and microservices. Functions truly shine due to the great interoperability they provide with lots of Azure services, SaaS products, and on-premise systems. Join Christos to learn how you can build and deploy Azure Functions written in JavaScript, C#, Python and PHP using various tools such as VS Code, Visual Studio or your favourite browser. Azure Functions is definitely the cool kid on the block and this is a great opportunity to see them in action in this session.
