Azure Mobile Development Enterprise Architecture

Zlín, Czechia

Serverless mobile database access with Azure Functions, Xamarin and SQLAzure

In this session, I will talk about Azure Functions, which is Microsoft serverless computing platform which allows developers to direct their attention to event and application scenarios rather than having to worry about the infrastructure.

With a range of more than 50 scenarios/templates available in Azure Functions, we will focus our attention on designing functions that interact with SQL Azure databases according to events, for instance an HTTP request on demand that allows to add information in a table or a data cleansing process that runs every day periodically at a specific time.

In addition, I will demonstrate how to combine several powerful technologies available in Azure Functions. They can be used as a backend which connects to a SQL Azure database and then sends emails to customers by using SendGrid. Everything will be consumed from an Android mobile application developed with Xamarin.
