About My Session

Umbraco with Functions and Logic Apps

How can we reap the benefits of 'serverless' technologies, such as Azure Functions and Azure Logic Apps, within our Umbraco sites? This session is intended to explain the benefits of converting existing code (think transactional events like sending emails or scheduled tasks) into reliable 'serverless' components, and also show just how easy it is to achieve.

We'll walk through refactoring and integrating parts of our Umbraco site with Azure Functions, then even progress to pulling data from an Umbraco Headless instance for use in external sources. Additionally, we'll take a look at how to build complex application workflows without writing any code using Azure Logic Apps, such as a simple flow for passing media items uploaded in Umbraco to Azure Cognitive Services to perform image recognition.
