MSPSUG May Virtual Meeting: Writing Your First Azure Function

For our May 2018 Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtual meeting, Microsoft MVP Thomas Rayner will be presenting “Writing Your First Azure Function” on Tuesday, May 8th at 8:30pm central time.

Rather than worrying about maintaining servers, Azure Functions allow you to focus on building great apps. Functions provides a fully managed compute platform with high reliability and security. With Scale on demand you get the resources you need, when you need them. You can create functions in tons of languages including JavaScript, C#, F#, Python, PHP, Bash, Batch, and of course, PowerShell. In this demo-heavy session, you’ll see how to create a simple Azure Function and learn the fundamental skills needed to take advantage of this powerful, flexible platform.

Thomas Rayner is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and Honorary Scripting Guy with many years of experience in IT. He is a master technologist, specializing in DevOps, systems and process automation, public, private and hybrid cloud, and PowerShell. Thomas is an international speaker, best-selling author, and instructor covering a vast array of IT topics. Thomas works for PCL Constructors on their DevOps and Automation team. He enjoys working with a wide variety of different products and technologies, particularly emerging and disruptive technologies, and automation-related products.
