Serverless Middleware in Azure Functions

English Advanced Architecture

When it comes to microservice architecture , sometimes all you wanted is to perform cross cutting concerns ( logging, authentication , caching, CORS, Routing, load balancing , exception handling , tracing, resiliency etc..) and also there might be a scenario where you wanted to perform certain manipulations on your request payload before hitting into your actual handler. And this should not be a repetitive code in each of the services , so all you might need is a single place to orchestrate all these concerns and that is where Middleware comes into the picture. In the demo I will be covering how to orchestrate these cross cutting concerns by using Azure functions as a Serverless model.
