About #MSCreate

In July, we ran Create:Frontend a half-day of conversations between community and industry experts with a focus on front-end development - ending with an hands-on learning workshop. We were blown away at the level of interest and engagement we had from attendees. These conversations matter.

So we decided to do it again - this time, with a focus on Serverless!

The format is simple. A free, live-streamed virtual event, featuring community and industry speakers, engaged in conversations, on a wide-range of topics related to a core technology.

Want to keep track of these events and conversations? Follow the #mscreate tag above!


About Create:Serverless

The Create:Serverless event marks the end of our 30-day #ServerlessSeptember celebration of community and industry sourced content that shows practical examples of serverless usage today. You can catch up on the content series here:

The event itself happens on Sep 30 with an amazing lineup of speakers and topics. We have a simple agenda:

  • An opening keynote on the Serverless landscape.
  • A series of conversations between community & industry experts.
  • A hands-on coding workshop (using Azure Functions)
  • A networking "open mic" session to close out the event
