Cloud Drops - Beginners guide to PowerShell in Azure Functions

May 6, 2021

Serverless computing is a cloud computing code execution model in which the cloud provider fully manages the infrastructure needed to serve requests. In this session, we will explain why and how we should use Azure Functions and PowerShell together, and we will show you how to deploy a PowerShell based Function. In some live demos, we will explain how to create a Function and execute some cool PowerShell code!

Introducing Logic Apps Preview

Following hot off the heels of my recent blog post introducing Logic Apps and how I use the technology on, I thought it made sense for the second post to continue the Logic Apps theme. This time, we’ll be focusing on Logic Apps preview (sometimes referred to as Logic Apps v2) - the evolution of Logic Apps. Typically when you deploy Logic Apps, you deploy it as a multi-tenanted service. There are some benefits to that, including the serverless capability, so being able to pay per execution rather than an overall infrastructure cost. But what if cost is less of a requirement for you? What if you care more about portability, greater performance, and ultimately control over your environment? If those are more along the lines of your requirements, then you may want to investigate the Logic Apps preview The Logic Apps preview builds upon the Azure Functions extensibility model. Yes, you read that right - Azure Logic Apps is effectively building on top of Azure Functions. Why should you care? Anywhere that Azure Functions can run, then Logic Apps can run.

9 - Building smart Integration Solutions with Microsoft Azure

But what are the common practices, or common challenges? You’ve probably heard of serverless, how does that fit into things? Well, I’m pleased to be joined by Ezhilarasi Chezhiyan, Product Consultant of Serverless360 at So, without further ado - let’s go ahead and jump straight in.

Deploying a multi-region Serverless API Layer (Part 1)

In my spare time, I work on a pet project called Theatreers. The aim of this is a microservice based platform focused on Theatre / Musical Theatre (bringing a few of my passion areas together). I’ve recently re-architected the project to align to a multi-region serverless technology stack.
