This is where those who have been around in the community can really help by providing mentorship. In this session Olena will tell about her experiences as a new speaker, and how having a mentor has helped her on this journey. Additionally, Eldert will share which insights he has gained by being a mentor.

Understanding Durable Functions through Lumpia
  • Adrienne Tacke

Azure's Durable Functions allow you to write stateful functions in a serverless compute environment. They're especially great for complex workflows or longer-running, dependent steps. But what does that mean? Why is that awesome? And why are some concepts like these filled with so much jargon? In this alternative and beginner-friendly talk, I'll explain what Azure's Durable Functions are, why they should be part of every developer's toolbox, and break down common Durable Function patterns into approachable, culinary examples. You'll leave with a better understanding of what Durable Functions are, why they're cool, and immediately think of fried spring rolls whenever you hear about them onward!
