Azure websites offer the ability to run programs or scripts in the background (on the same resources you already pay for with the website). Last year, I presented WebSites and WebJobs – this time I want to get to the detail of WebJobs to help you understand what problems it can solve for you.
I’ll be covering the following:
- How to create webjobs
- Detail on the file system/directory structure that can be useful
- Special files and their meanings
- Overview of Kudu and its role in webjobs
- Introduction and examples of using the WebJobs SDK bindings and triggers
- Introduction to WebJob extensions (and if time – example of writing a custom extension)
