Understanding Durable Functions through Lumpia

 
English Intermediate Compute

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!

Speaker

Adrienne Tacke

Senior Developer Advocate for MongoDB

I'm a Filipina software engineer and technologist at 🧡. I take great delight in solving complex problems and building awesome things, particularly with C# and JavaScript. Most of all, I relish in the opportunity to teach anyone about code. Speaking at tech conferences is a passion of mine and I love sharing my knowledge in .NET, Azure, C#, JavaScript, IoT, and best practices for collaborating in an open, fair, and inclusive manner. Please reach out if you'd like me to speak at your next conference or local meetup! I'm proud to have several talks lined up for the remainder of this year! Check out my website https://www.adrienne.io to see where I'm speaking next! I'm the author of the book Coding for Kids: Python where I break down programming concepts for kids 10+ (and those with no programming background but are eager to learn!) I am a LinkedIn Learning instructor that specializes in Cloud Development. Check out my first course Automating Your Azure Development Workflow!
