Our next meetup on Wednesday, 22. November 2017 will be nothing less than an Azure Functions Workshop from instructor Christoph Wille.
A brief description of the workshop:
What was (is) known as Azure App Service WebJobs morphed into full-fledged serverless Azure Functions. These are constantly evolving, and the integrations keep on coming: event processing with Azure Event Grid and/or Stream Analytics, database triggers for Azure Cosmos DB, cross-platform developer experience and of course Linux and containers are in the mix too. Did I mention that you can bring any programming language?
What we’ll do – followed by a show-and-tell presentation about the latest and greatest features of Azure Functions, we’ll dive into a coding session (a basic understanding of Azure Functions is assumed, you might want to at least watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdiKoWdrIn4). This means: bring your Macs and PCs (curiosity too)! If you don’t happen to have an Azure subscription, please go to http://azure.com/free/ and sign up for an entirely free subscription (cc is used for verification only).
Christoph Wille is MVP for Azure and publishes the code of his projects on https://github.com/christophwille (includes Windows as well Azure projects). He is an independent consultant, supporting companies in everything Windows and Web (he was ASP.NET MVP for ten+ years). Aside from working on his own projects, he is also involved in other OSS projects, such as ILSpy and Refactoring Essentials for Visual Studio. You can reach him via https://twitter.com/WilleChristoph/.
As usual, we are looking for meetup sponsors. As a sponsor you will have the opportunity to present your company/project/job offerings in front of the audience. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Finally, if you are working on something in the Serverless space and want to talk about or discuss it, please do not hesitate to contact us, so that we can put you on the speakers list for the next meetup.
