Another day, another new thing to learn. That's the great thing about programming - if you don't like things, just wait 24 hours and it will all change.
One of those new things is Azure Static Web Apps; a new service for deploying and hosting Static Web Apps with Serverless APIs. But how does it work? What is a "static web app"? Why am I turning into my father when I SWORE that would never happen?
To help you get up to speed, I've made a six minute(ish) video to help you get up and running with Azure Static Web Apps with the quickness.
For more answers to all your burning Static Web Apps questions, check out the Azure Static Web Apps Docs.

Wow 😄 , Learned so much in just 6 minutes of video , Thank you. Question: What if I want to deploy a online business website using
Azure Static Web App? How is that possible because
Githubis only for developers ? Can we connect
Azure Static Web Appto some other hosting or
Azureitself can host my files ?
Right now it's just Github. Although we've received a lot of feedback that people would like other providers as well. Which source control would you want to use? Or direct publish?
Below is the sentence from Github Pages
GitHub Pages is not intended for or allowed to be used as a free web hosting service to run your online business, e-commerce site, or any other website that is primarily directed at either facilitating commercial transactions or providing commercial software as a service (SaaS).
So how can one use Github repository as free web hosting service to run online business or e-commerce site which includes commercial gain ?
You can also host a static site from a Azure storage account. No restrictions. clemens.ms/hosting-a-static-site-o...
Also can I use
Azureas hosting service ? . Like Azure
App Service. I think Azure
App Servicewill be heavy for static pages, because it's used to host
Waiting for answers :)
Also I am curious about the cost. What if I use
Azurefor just deploying
Azure Static Web AppWill the cost be lower than
GodaddyWindows hosting ?
It is free during preview. Once it reaches GA (general availability) more formal pricing information will be available.
I´ve to say this kinda answer make me think if I want to dedicate effort to early migrate real-life sites/apps to these amazing technologies, at least until seeing formal pricing
The video was good 😄, What tools did you used to record and Edit ? Did you did Voice over while recording or after recording ?
