The microservices/serverless confusion
Lucie Simeckova

Stakeholders expect to develop faster when we use serverless and microservices. We ignore best practices and essential steps. Are you aware of what things we overlook to deliver more quickly?

We finally found a way to combine our respective interests of Azure architecture and cute ponies. The video covers the implementation of the front-end using Blazor and JavaScript interop to re-use existing libraries, as well as the back-end implementation using the latest Azure Durable Functions 2.0 features.


Faster Querying with Serverless Materialized Views

The materialized view pattern is a great way to make complex, expensive, and slow queries return in minimal time. And serverless is a great platform to power the generation and update of your materialized views due to its great support for event-driven programming and the excellent scalability to handle unpredictable workload volumes. Life is even easier if you choose to use the Cosmos DB change feed to drive your materialized view creation as it seamlessly integrates with Azure Functions. In this article, we look at the benefits of the materialized view pattern and show a simple example of how it can be implemented with Azure Functions and the Cosmos DB change feed.
