How working as a bartender helped me creating better Azure Functions solutions

During college, I've been working as a bartender in a restaurant. One of the most important things to know in this job is how to treat each individual client. This has a major overlap with developing software!

In our development landscape, we have several clients and each wants to be treated differently. For example the `HttpClient`, a `SqlConnection` and even third-party clients. All of them require some plumbing or know-how of how the client actually works.

During this session, I'll show you how you can abstract all of this in your serverless solution. By using Azure Functions custom bindings you can focus on adding business value instead of keeping track of all your clients.
