Serverless is the new buzzword in cloud application development, but this comes with its own challenges around development, deployment and lifecycle management.
In this presentation, Sam will present an introduction to developing serverless applications in Microsoft Azure. This includes an introduction to Azure and specifically Azure Functions, the serverless platform in Azure. We’ll work through the creation of a sample function and see how triggers, data and outputs work in a serverless world.
Once we have a working function, will then take a look at Azure DevOps (formally VSTS), the CI/CD platform in Azure, and how to utilise this to manage the lifecycle of your serverless application. We’ll cover build, test and release management and how to build the process required to take these applications into production.
