Advanced Serverless Azure: Extending Azure Functions to meet your Runtime Infrastructure Needs

Advanced Serverless Azure: Extending Azure Functions to meet your Runtime Infrastructure Needs

Bindings and runtime extensions are the engines of Azure Functions that fuel Azure-based Serverless architectures. In this short talk, Christian Weyer will show you in a live coding session how you can build and use your own custom bindings and extensions. Based on a real project’s requirements, he will walk you through the internals of Azure Functions and create a fully functional custom binding that implements patterns for reusing custom infrastructure needs.
