Event-Driven Architecture

Building Serverless Cloud-Native applications with Azure Container Apps

Technology is always evolving. We’ve seen physical machines turn into virtual. Virtual machines turn into containers. But often, those containers need an orchestrator like Kubernetes to reap the full benefits. What if there was a simpler option? Join Tighe and Chris as they introduce you to Azure Container Apps (Preview), Dapr and Keda - Helping you get started on your serverless cloud native journey.

Cloud Drops - Beginners guide to PowerShell in Azure Functions

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!

19 - The Event Sourcing, Materialized View and CQRS Patterns

The event sourcing pattern is a well-known pattern and has been around for some time. The idea is that you use an append-only store to record the full series of actions taken on the data. This combines well with the materialized view pattern, where a pre-populated view is generated over one (or more) data stores when the data isn’t in an ideal format for querying. These two patterns are common patterns used in an event-driven architecture. Join Chris and Steph as they talk about both of these patterns and how they may be able to help. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

9 - Building smart Integration Solutions with Microsoft Azure

When we think about cloud, we typically think about distributed systems and somehow bringing those different components or systems together, so integrating them. 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 Kovai.co. So, without further ado - let’s go ahead and jump straight in.

An Introduction to Azure Functions

If you have been keeping up to date with the latest and greatest in Azure Services (yes, I know there are quite a few!), you may have heard of a new service called Azure Functions. Azure Functions is an event-driven Platform as a Service capability, helping you to execute code upon the occurrence of a particular event. It is currently in preview, though already has a lot of potential.
