Jason Farrell
Microsoft, Senior Consultant

Jason Farrell is Senior Consultant with Microsoft Consulting Services. My main goal is to help customers build solutions, solve problems, and bring value. His main focus is cloud, DevOps, and advanced architectures. Put simply, his work is helping companies transition and better utilize the cloud through modernization and cultural transformation.

Azure Functions are the serverless offering from Microsoft on Azure, enabling the fulfillment of many use cases without the need to worry about the servers. By responding to events within the Azure platform, Functions are granted access to a wide variety of use cases and situations. Perhaps their most important role is as the "glue" for event driven architectures mainly through supported bindings.

In this talk, we will walk through the most commonly used bindings and illustrate ways larger systems can be constructed through the use of gluing Azure Service offerings together using functions.
