Developer Advocate,


Azure Functions has come a long way. With v3 we can now develop functions locally using the latest .NET Core framework and use cool features such as dependency injection.

In this session, we will move beyond demoware and look at the development of Azure Functions from start to production. This includes choosing the right plan, finding use cases for durable functions, logging and monitoring, storing data, and digging into the advantages of deployment slots.

We'll test your application, discuss design patterns, make it secure, and debug it (both locally and remotely) so that by the end of the session, we should be well equipped to build a complementary microservice or API to suit most business needs.

You will learn:

  • Getting started with Azure Functions
  • Knowledge of how to debug and troubleshoot
  • Knowledge of different types of triggers and the different options and features of Azure Functions.
