The session would be led by Microsoft Cloud Architect Kyle Wilson. The initial part of this talk focuses on exploring a simple model for application modernization strategy. We then dive into the Serverless capabilities of Azure and how they can be leveraged in support of the application modernization process. We will cover technical insights into the pros and cons of various approaches along with some specific examples and demonstrations. The goal of the talk is to bring more clarity on the Serverless offerings in Azure and how they fit into a broader cloud/application modernization strategy.
