Azure Functions: internals and future direction - Eduardo Laureano

Azure Functions has been a popular growing service due to how simple it makes for developers, IT-pros and data professionals to build applications in the cloud.

But how does Microsoft deliver on the serverless promise? What's next for serverless and FaaS (Functions as a service)?

This talk will go through some of the most popular aspects of Azure Functions and provide details of how it works. It will also paint the picture of what's next, with some concepts demonstrated in practice.

Eduardo Laureano, principal PM lead, Microsoft
Eduardo focuses on building serverless products on Azure, currently leading product management for Azure Functions.

He has been at Microsoft for over 15 years, with the last 5 years on PaaS and FaaS application development. Eduardo's passion is on helping others make their application development journey as easy as possible. He also swims, bikes and runs occasionally :-)

Built with Azure Functions - Erik Lieben

At Effectory my team recently completed a new part of our platform called 'start a survey' (more info here: which is running as a micro-service build with Azure Functions, Azure Storage (Queue, Table, Blob), Azure KeyVault, and Azure Service Bus.
