Durable Functions are sort of a combination of AWS Step Functions and AWS Event Bridge to me. I think the orchestration of Durable Functions is easier to me and one big advantage is you have DF maintain state, they are more reliable than Logic Apps to me. But function chaining Lambdas is more straight forward in AWS. I like using both though they bridge a huge gap in serverless. Great Intro Gwenyth !

I have to take a look at lambda, as an Azure user, I wonder how simple it would be for me to understand lambda, thank you for the insight!

I don't think it would be hard for you to pick up at all. I come from working in an AWS environment to Azure. It wasn't hard for me to pick up at all. The paradigm is different for sure, but once you get used to it, its not so bad. It also depends on your language of choice. I try to use Node JS when I can simply because of the execution time. But honestly it depends what you are trying to accomplish, with timer functions C# script has never caused a problem. If you have Lambda questions feel free to reach out
