Building real solutions in Azure Functions

English Advanced DevOps

Creating your first Azure Function is a nice exercise to get your feet wet, but what is required when you are looking at building an actual solution and what kind of considerations should you make when getting started? In this choose your own adventure-style session, you'll first be taken through the basics, the tools and the goal of the Azure Function. Then we reach the phase where we decide which language we'll use to build out this function. Are you shy or you think every language is equal, don't worry we'll have an Azure Function decides how the presentation progresses from here. At the end of this session, you'll have learned what kind of considerations to keep in mind, how to plan out your initial functions before getting started and then we'll get into building, writing, deploying and testing our first Azure Function.
