Azure Functions vs Azure Logic Apps - Know When to Use Which

Both Azure Functions and Azure Logic Apps are Azure services that enable serverless workloads. Azure Functions is a serverless compute service, whereas Azure Logic Apps is a serverless workflow integration platform. Both can create complex orchestrations.

For Azure Functions, you develop orchestrations by writing code and using the Durable Functions extension. For Azure Logic Apps, you create orchestrations by using a GUI or editing configuration files You can mix and match services when you build an orchestration, such as calling functions from logic app workflows and calling logic app workflows from functions.

We'll demo both of these services and show how to choose when to build each orchestration based on the services' capabilities.
