I’m excited to be speaking at SharePoint Cincy 2018. I believe this is the 5th year I’ve spoken there and it has always been a good conference to meet with attendees and hear other good content. Below is an abstract for the session that I’ll be presenting on cloud development using Azure Functions (a recent area of big interest I’ve been working with a customer on). There is still time to register. Feel free to use my promo code Jackett2018 for a discount. If you’re attending the conference feel free to stop by and say hi.

Title: Dipping Your Toe into Cloud Development with Azure Functions
Abstract: Those on-prem custom solutions (ex. timer jobs, batch processes, etc.) need to be re-written for SharePoint Online. Where do you host them so that you don’t DoS the proxy? How do you properly secure public endpoints for Azure resources? What authentication will you use against SharePoint Online? In this session we will introduce Azure Functions and related services as an option for replacing on-prem solutions while keeping in mind security, architecture, authentication, scalability, and more. We’ll also walk through a real-world scenario calling Office 365 APIs using an authenticated Azure AD app. Prior experience with Azure is helpful but not required.
