Azure Functions

Azure Functions, Function-as-a-Service "serverless" offering from Microsoft, provides us with a super easy way to run custom code in response to events. Serverless is the new buzz of the day, rapidly taking over the fame of microservices.

In this meetup we will dive into creating Azure Functions in F#. We'll go through the process of authoring Functions in your IDE or editor of choice, and how to use cross-platform tools to host the runtime on your dev machine.

You'll see how Functions are the easiest way to run backend F# code in the cloud. We'll discuss how the principles of functional programming can be reused and amplified by properly designed event-driven Function pipelines.
