Serverless offers the opportunity for dramatically faster development along with significant cost savings and the ability to quickly scale your application’s services to instantly meet demand. In this talk you'll discover how we can use Azure Functions, one of Azure’s core Serverless offerings to fully realize these benefits. We’ll start with high level architecture but quickly drill into code and how we can use other Azure services to complete the Serverless story on Azure. Along the way we’ll not only talk about common integration points with messaging and data services on Azure but also best practices, common pitfalls and other challenges. We’ll also have a little fun seeing Azure Function’s scalability in action. All sample code will be available on Github.
