English Intermediate Other

In this talk I'll delve into the guts of the Azure Functions Runtime for .Net and show how its hidden extensibility features can let you implement cross-cutting concerns. I'll cover the background to why I decided to abuse the Azure Functions Runtime in this way, look at how I found the semi-secret extensibility points and show a couple of implementations that solved specific problems across a multitude of micro-services codebases.
