Azure Functions is cool, but it doesn't (yet) meet every use case. However, Microsoft have provided us with all the tools we need to run serverless and event-driven applications on Kubernetes. In this session we'll look at how you can get a similar experience to Azure Functions on AKS, and discuss the pros and cons of both approaches.
Mark is an Azure MVP based on the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland. He's been a professional developer since the 1980s and freelance since 2000, working on a myriad of projects for everything from local startups and councils to multinational corporations and federal government departments. While something of a technology omnivore, particularly if it's new and shiny, he currently tends towards Xamarin and React front-ends sitting on top of scalable Azure services, using a functional and reactive approach. In his spare time he's a STEM Ambassador, CoderDojo mentor, Barefoot volunteer and organiser of the Northern Ireland Developer Conference.
