Networking for Azure Functions – it’s for Serverless devs too!

In many organizations, adherence to network security guidelines is an imperative. Serverless developers want to write the code to solve business challenges, run code on a scalable and robust platform, and not worry about the infrastructure. Understanding how to bend their serverless solution to the demands of virtual network restrictions can be a challenge.

In this session, Michael will discuss approaches to integrate Azure Functions with virtual network restricted Azure resources. They’ll discuss approaches for private access and virtual network integration. You will learn about the options available to meet several virtual network requirements, all while still leveraging the benefits of a serverless platform.
