Getting Started with Azure Functions

This talked has been renamed from From Zero to Serverless and has since been superseded by Serverless in Action

So many times, our customers need a simple routine that can be executed on a routine basis but the solution doesn’t need to be an elaborate solution without going the trouble of setting servers and other infrastructure. Serverless computer is the abstraction of servers, infrastructure, and operating systems and make getting solutions to your customer’s needs much quicker and cheaper. During this session we will look at how Azure Functions will enable you to run code on-demand without having to explicitly provision or manage infrastructure.

Short Abstract

Have you ever just needed to get a simple process that needs to be executed on a routine basis? Well serverless computing will help you do that quickly and without the mess and fuss of dealing with infrastructure.
