Serverless: Azure Durable functions stateful workflows by code

01:45 PM Bretton Woods

Durable functions are an extension of Azure Functions. Whereas Azure Functions operate in a stateless environment, Durable Functions can retain state between function calls. This approach enables you to simplify complex stateful executions in a serverless-environment. Durable Functions scales as needed, and provides a cost effective means of implementing complex workflows in the cloud. In this session we focus in Durable functions concepts and review how to build workflows (complex stateful executions) covering useful workflow patterns like: a. Function chaining b. Fan out/fan c. Async HTTP APIs d. Monitor e. Human interaction f. Aggregator
