Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend a fantastic event on Serverless on Azure, organized by Experis - A Manpower company. The event was held at Experis, Tower C, 7th floor, IBC Knowledge Park, Bhavani Nagar, SG Palya, Bannerghatta Main Road, Bangalore 560029 and featured four speakers who shared their insights and experiences on building serverless applications on Azure. Here are some of the highlights from the event.

The event started with an introduction by Sriram Ramakrishnan, Sr. Practice VP at Experis, and Patrick Mclnenly, Enterprise Delivery Director at Experis. They talked about the vision and mission of Experis, which is to provide innovative solutions and talent for the digital age.
They also explained how Experis helps clients leverage serverless technologies to achieve scalability, agility, and cost-efficiency.
Architecting Serverless applications on Azure 🛠️
The first technical session was delivered by Karthikeyan VK, CTO at PROIndia and Microsoft MVP. He gave an overview of the serverless architecture and its benefits, such as reduced operational overhead, faster time to market, and pay-per-use pricing.
He also demonstrated how to design and implement serverless applications on Azure using various services, such as Azure Functions, Event Grid, and Cosmos DB.

The next session was presented by Aditya Oberai, Developer Advocate at Appwrite and Microsoft MVP. He focused on how to build serverless .NET applications on Azure using C#, Visual Studio, and Azure DevOps.

He also shared some best practices and tips for optimizing the performance and security of serverless .NET applications.
Wrap up/Goodies/Closing note 🎁
The event concluded with a wrap-up by Sriram and Pat, who thanked the speakers, the audience, and the sponsors for making the event a success. They also distributed some goodies to the attendees, such as water bottles with the Experis logo. I was lucky enough to get one of them!
My takeaways 🙌
I really enjoyed attending the event and learned a lot about serverless on Azure. I also got to network with some fantastic people who share my passion for technology. I would like to thank Experis for organizing this event and giving me this opportunity. I would also like to congratulate the BDotnet User Group and specially Swaminathan Vetri for coordinating this event. I look forward to attending more events like this in the future.
One of the best moments of the event was when I got a signed copy of Karthikeyan’s book “Developers Road Ahead”. It is a great book that covers various topics related to software development and career growth. I can’t wait to read it!
