AZPSUG - Arizona PowerShell user group

Arizona PowerShell User Group – From PowerShell Function to Serverless code with Azure Functions

Yesterday I was asked to speak at the Arizona PowerShell User Group, I picked the subject of moving your code into Azure Functions. Although PowerShell might not seem like the obvious choice, there are some definite benefits to be had from having a subset of your code run in Azure Functions. Providing you with the benefits of serverless, no operational management and almost infinite scalability.

This was not the first time for me to speak at the Arizona PowerShell user group as I already spoke there, also remotely, in March this year. The topic back then was: Fun with PowerShell 6 – JEA Remoting and cross-platform.

The code has been shared on GitHub in my Events repository:
Arizona PowerShell UG

I also shared the slides I used and my other presentations on SlideShare:
