Getting started in Microservice can be a steep hill to climb, but with Azure Functions we can begin building them within minutes. Azure Functions is a "serverless" computing offering, that allows you to run small bits of JavaScript, C#, Python, PHP, Bash, Batch, and PowerShell that is managed by Azure to scale as needed. In this talk we will cover what are the best applications for Azure Functions, where they fit amongst the many options in cloud computing and go over specific use cases, including building a completely serverless backend for a web application and how it can be used for home automation.
