Ten years ago, Azure started with a strong focus on PaaS. No wonder that Serverless has also become super important in Microsoft’s cloud recently. Rainer Stropek has been using Azure since the days of the first technical previews. In this session, Rainer will introduce you to Azure Functions, one of the Serverless offerings in Azure. Instead of speaking about theory, Rainer will walk you through an end-to-end sample and use it to describe the inner workings of Azure Function’s programming model. No slides, just code, a session for Microservice developers who want to know how things work and how they can benefit from Azure in practice.
