On Wednesday, March 8, I spoke at the Sydney Serverless Meetup on how you can quickly build an Azure Function Extension and in what situations you should consider doing so. Here I run through the demo and the code!

The first ever Serverless Days ANZ event run on Friday September 4 and, boy, what a success it was! In this post I'll go into the online event in a bit more detail and look at some of the stats along with my highlights.
