Code First in the Cloud: Going Serverless
Serverless takes traditional Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to the next level by empowering developers to focus on their code first. Learn how to abstract away servers, build event-driven code that scales quickly and saves costs while seamlessly integrating into the DevOps workflow. Focusing on business logic means getting apps to market, faster. Discover for yourself the power of serverless with examples in Node.js that leverage Azure’s Functions and Logic App services.
