Building and operating cloud-native applications with Radius and Azure.

English Intermediate Other

Radius is an open-source framework that enables developers and operators to build, deploy and operate on cloud native applications across public and private clouds. In this session, I'll talk about why developers and operators might want to use Radius when building cloud-native applications, go into the architecture of Radius, compare it other common tools and frameworks for managing cloud native apps, and show how you can build cloud-native applications using Radius through live demos. By the end of this session, you'll have an understanding of what Radius is, how you can use it to build and manage your cloud native apps, and understand how it differs from other cloud-native tools and frameworks.
