Azure Functions is the newest way to write code without managing server instances, runtimes or the other boring stuff. Do you need a GitHub webhook right now? Azure Functions can do it! Need a test HTTP API? Azure Functions got your back! Are you evil and want to run PowerShell code when someone issues a PUT request? I don’t know what’s wrong with you, but Azure Functions can do that (and Bash too)!

Come to this talk where we will explore Azure Functions, what it can do and what you can build using it. If you bring your laptop, you can get going authoring your own functions before the talk is done.
