Azure Superpowers Tour

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone involved in making this event happen including all attendees, and especially SSW and Adam Cogan for supporting and sponsoring these events, Adam Stephensen for being my wingman or the other way around, and of course my beautiful wife and kids for handling my absence prior and during the tour. It's been a hell of a couple of weeks. Putting together slides and demos is a lot of work, involving a lot of frustration and a lot of late nights to make sure everything flows smoothly. The prepping is intense and for sure it can't »

Build and Deploy an Angular App from GitHub to Azure Website

I had a bit of a challenge when I tried to deploy an Angular app to Azure and I'd love to share it since it was new to me, it might as well help other people.

So started playing with it and I actually got to the other end. So here we go... In this example, »

Azure Functions .NET UG Tour

So I've turned it into a full talk and the idea of this talk was to cover from end-to-end the whole development lifecycle of Azure Functions and also give several different ways to do so. In this talk, I give an overview of Serverless, the pros and cons, when not to use it and a few other things. I won't put the whole content of the talk in »

Azure Functions: Proxies

Azure Functions Proxies has just been announced as preview a couple of days ago and I played with it for a little while. It really fills the gap for a lot of people. First of all, if you haven't played with proxies yet, go to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-proxies to get started, then come back here :D and... Let's take some simple scenarios: Simplifying URL I've got a simple Azure Function and the full URL to call it is https://demotspfunction.azurewebsites.net/api/SimpleHttpGetCall/?name=test and I want to tidy the URL a bit »
