Building a document e-signing workflow with Durable Functions

English Introductory Other

Durable functions offer an interesting programming model for building workflows. Whether you need to sometimes split and do multiple things or wait for user input, a lot of things are possible. They do present some challenges as well, and the limitations of orchestrator functions can make working with Durable seem very complicated. In this talk we will go through the basics of Durable Functions along with strategies for deploying and monitoring them. A sample application will be presented where users can send documents for electronic signature. A Durable Functions workflow will power the signing process. After attending this talk, you will have a basic understanding of Durable Functions as well as the source code for the sample application, which you can refer to when developing your own applications.
