When Azure Functions aren't enough, Durable Functions are probably the answer! Azure's Durable Functions allow you to write stateful functions in a serverless compute environment which are incredibly powerful when you have complex workflows or longer-running, dependent steps. We'll explore the six patterns with which Durable Functions can be applied and the best practices for each!
Specifically, we'll go over:
- What are Durable Functions?
- When to use Durable Functions over regular functions
- Six durable functions patterns:
-- Function Chaining
--Fan-out/fan-in (and why durable functions are particularly better for this pattern than regular functions!)
-- Async HTTP APIs
-- Human Interaction
The audience should leave with a greater understanding of when to use Durable Functions over regular functions and understand the pros and cons of each durable function pattern when considering to implement one for their own workflows!
