  • A Brief History Of Serverless
    The FaaS platform gained a lot of popularity which resulted in many competitors. There was OSS providers like OpenFaaS or Fission. There were of course the commercial versions to like Azure Functions and Google Cloud Functions. - Source: dev.to / 2 months ago
  • Implementing serverless architecture in React Native apps
    Serverless technology helps React Native developers create more robust, adaptable, and efficient mobile applications that meet the demands of today's dynamic digital landscape. By seamlessly integrating cloud functions from providers like AWS Lambda or Azure Functions, developers can tap into a world of possibilities to enrich their mobile apps. - Source: dev.to / 8 months ago

  • JDK 20 and JDK 21: What We Know So Far
    UNIX is irrelevant on the cloud, unless one is stuck deploying legacy workloads on VMs, this is what we use in modern applications not stuck in the past. https://aws.amazon.com/eks/ https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/products/kubernetes-service https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/ https://cloud.google.com/appengine https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/products/app-service https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

  • The problem(s) with Azure Functions
    Before that, I spend a ton of time testing Azure Functions and stumbled over a few rocks mountains 🗻. - Source: dev.to / almost 2 years ago
  • Building an API? The 33 tools you need to consider
    Another interesting angle is building ‘serverless’ functions using AWS Lambda or Azure functions to implement the API. I’ve found that the architectural complexity eats a lot of time, but if you’re already familiar with those platforms, it might be an easy way to build a couple of endpoints. - Source: dev.to / almost 2 years ago
  • Laravel Vapor on GCP, Azure, DigitalOcean, Linode, Vultr, Hetzner...
    Vapor runs on AWS Lambda. Azure has “functions”… but they aren’t close to what Lambda can offer. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Side Project: RedirectMe
    The application is simple and my intent is only to have a really short amount of API endpoints (at least for now), so I created the back-end API with Azure Functions, using .NET Core 3.1 (migration to .NET 6 and Azure Functions v4 planned - another post planned to follow it) since there was not a lot of processing to be done on each endpoint. - Source: dev.to / about 2 years ago
  • What is serverless computing?
    Some providers, such as Amazon or Microsoft offer general-purpose services, capable of hosting any type of code, with access to a fairly large number of parameters. Other providers, like us for example offer dedicated solutions adapted to certain types of applications (scripts in our case). - Source: dev.to / about 2 years ago
  • Dynamically spin up VM (based on specific HTTPS request) and stop it once session is over?
    This type of use case sounds like FaaS But almost everybody uses containers for that. Try openfaas or https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/functions/. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Understanding and Controlling AWS Lambda Costs
    Others in this product class include Google Cloud Functions and Azure Functions, both of which share the same billing model as Lambda, but with different rates and service limits. - Source: dev.to / about 2 years ago
  • Protecting and Hiding your Bing Maps Key
    In this example we are using an Anonymous HttpTrigger Azure Function written in C# that returns the Bing Maps key:. - Source: dev.to / over 2 years ago
  • Simplify Using Hooks by Using Custom Hooks in React
    After working with AngularJS for a little while, a colleague recommended React, and then after trying (and failing with) Redux, I embraced hooks and naturally function components in React. While my back end APIs are still all written in .NET Core, and now that .NET Core has become .NET 6, I don't even run my front-end SPAs in ASP.NET any more. They are now static web pages created as React projects with npm hosted... - Source: dev.to / over 2 years ago
  • Calling Powershell from Okta workflows
    You may also want to look at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/functions/ Azure Functions. They are "serverless" functions that can be invoked via HTTP. AWS calls it "AWS Lambda", but they are the same - the main reason to use Azure Functions is that they support powershell. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • a first look at azure functions
    Azure Functions is an event-driven serverless compute platform that manages deploying and maintaining servers. - Source: dev.to / about 3 years ago
  • Top 30 Microsoft Azure Services
    Serverless computing is all the rage these days, and along with AWS and Google, Azure has thrown its hat in the ring with Azure Functions. While technically not server-less, Functions abstracts away interaction with the actual web app server and lets users deploy a piece of programming logic, wrapped in a function and triggered by an event such as a database entry or a specific time of day. Users only write the... - Source: dev.to / about 3 years ago
  • Deploying Prisma to Azure Functions with Azure SQL
    In this guide, you will set up and deploy a Prisma based Node.js REST API to Azure Functions together with Azure SQL as the database. The application will expose a REST API and use Prisma Client to handle fetching, creating, and deleting records from a database. - Source: dev.to / over 3 years ago

    Backend is powered by Azure Functions that is a serverless service on Azure. - Source: dev.to / over 3 years ago
  • Setting up demos in Azure - Part 1: ARM templates
    For the services, I'm going with Azure App Service, as it's a simple way to host traditional ASP.NET Core applications. Azure Functions would also be a good option, particularly in the event-driven context, but I don't want to focus the presentation on that, so keeping it simple with good old ASP.NET Core apps. - Source: dev.to / over 3 years ago
