Eduard Keilholz - Forget SignalR! Start working real-time with Azure Web PubSub
Getting real-time information on processes and operations is essential when creating convenient, user-friendly web systems. With Web PubSub, Microsoft took the next step by enabling your to leverage real-time communication right from your browser. In this session, I will show you how to use Web PubSub and discover some advanced scenarios using alternative protocols, that enable real-time communication between servers and clients.

Marc Duiker - The quest for serverless web sockets: An adventure with Azure functions & durable functions

What do you need to build a serverless application that can communicate with client devices in realtime? In this session I'll show how to combine Azure Functions, Durable Functions and serverless WebSockets (Ably) to achieve this.

The context is a multi-player ADnD style game (with pixel-art of course) running on Azure Static Web Apps. I'll cover: - How the clients interact with HTTP triggered functions in the .NET based Azure Functions back-end. - How Durable Entities are used for the centralized game state. - How serverless WebSockets are used to sync the state to the clients.

We will play the game live as well!

Marc is a Sr Developer Advocate at Diagrid with a strong focus on event-driven architectures in the Azure cloud. He loves helping developers to achieve more every day.

You might have seen Marc at a developer meetup or conference since he's a regular speaker in the area of Azure cloud & serverless technologies. He started Azure Functions University, a free and open source learning curriculum on GitHub, where everyone can learn about Azure Functions at their own pace.

In his spare time, Marc likes to give attention to the creative part of his brain. He likes to create pixel art (check out VSCode Pets), code visuals & music, and an occasional retro game.
