AzureFunBytes is a weekly opportunity to learn more about the fundamentals and foundations that make up Azure. It's a chance for me to understand more about what people across the Azure organization do and how they do it. Every week we get together at 11 AM Pacific on Microsoft LearnTV and learn more about Azure.

This week I welcomed Anthony Chu, Program Manager at Microsoft, to discuss Azure Static Web Apps and Azure Functions. Anthony and I have a conversation on why this service makes sense for your web apps. We discussed how the Azure Static Web App Service enables collaboration with your development team by utilizing triggered CI/CD runs from GitHub Actions or Azure DevOps Pipelines. There's support right out of the box for static site generators like Gatsby, Hugo, VuePress, and more.

We cover:

  • What is Jamstack?
  • What is Azure Static Web Apps?
  • Demos + chatting + questions
  • Take a single page app and deploy it to Static Web Apps
  • Add an API
  • Add authentication
  • Add custom domain
  • Look at an app that uses other Azure services (SignalR, Cosmos DB)

Learn about Azure fundamentals with me!

Live stream is available on Twitch, YouTube, and LearnTV at 2 pm EST Thursday. You can also find the recordings here as well:
