• "Building Serverless and Event-driven applications on Azure"

    Hugo Barona https://www.linkedin.com/in/hugomiguelbarona/ Come join the Mafia for a drink and some pizza for our first Meet-Up! Hugo will be talking about how to build applications using Cloud technologies and two hot topics nowadays: Serverless computing and Event-driven architecture. With Serverless computing, the developer can easy deploy his code and do not need to worry about purchasing, provisioning and managing servers. Also, Serverless architectures offer greater scalability, more flexibility, and quicker time to release, all at a reduced cost. With Event-driven architectures, we can build applications that use resources when it needs to act to a given event. So, it is built using event-driven communications and there is no pre-allocation of resources. In the context of Azure, this kind of architecture is based on Consumption pricing plans, so you only pay for what you consume in terms of Azure resources.
