AzureFunBytes Reminder - Azure Static Web Apps with @nthonyChu - 4/8/2021

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.

When: April 8, 2021 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern
Where: Microsoft LearnTV

This week I welcome Anthony Chu, Program Manager at Microsoft, to discuss Azure Static Web Apps and Azure Functions. Anthony will join me Thursday to have a conversation on why this service makes sense for your web apps. We'll look at 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.

From the Azure Static Web Apps documentation:

When you create an Azure Static Web Apps resource, Azure interacts directly with GitHub or Azure DevOps to monitor a branch of your choice. Every time you push commits or accept pull requests into the watched branch, a build is automatically run and your app and API is deployed to Azure.

Static web apps are commonly built using libraries and frameworks like Angular, React, Svelte, Vue, or Blazor where server side rendering is not required. These apps include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and image assets that make up the application. With a traditional web server, these assets are served from a single server alongside any required API endpoints.

Anthony will join me to discuss Jamstack, adding dynamic elements to our apps with Azure Functions, and even some information on local development.

Join us at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST for the latest episode! We'll get you the information you need to start building your Azure Static Web Apps.

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:
