Azure has a multitude of services that can seem very confusing at first. In this presentation, Laurent Bugnion, a Cloud Developer Advocate with a strong experience in client and web programming will show you a few Azure services that can be useful to your CMS experience. We will talk about App Services features such as deployment slots, SSL certificates and more; we'll quickly touch on Azure Functions and serverless APIs; we'll see an example of Logic Apps, another serverless offering; and we'll show a globally distributed database called Cosmos DB.
At the end of the session, you'll have a better understanding of what Azure has to offer and how you can it can help you be more efficient in your daily tasks.
