=Containers on Azure: Exploring the Landscape=

So you've decided you want to use containers in Azure, but what should you use to host them? There are numerous options available including Virtual Machines, Azure Container Instances, App Service, Service Fabric, Service Fabric Mesh, and Azure Kubernetes Service. In this session Mark will give a high-level overview of the key options, explain why you might choose each one, and demonstrate how easy the Azure CLI makes it to deploy containers in Azure.

=Serverless Workflows with Durable Functions=

Azure Functions makes it super quick and easy to write create cloud-based functions to respond to events, but once you start connecting functions together into a workflow, things can get complex and chaotic very quickly. In this session Mark will demonstrate how Durable Functions lets you take back control of your serverless workflows, allowing you to keep track of progress and implement advanced workflow patterns such as fan out and fan in, and waiting for external approval.
