Azure SIG
ASP.NET Webhooks and Azure Functions
Presented by Anthony Clayton
2/20/2017 5:45 PM

New date and location: We will meet Monday, February 20 in the lower level conference room of Building I (middle building).

WebHooks provide a simple mechanism for web applications and services to publish events to subscribers over HTTP. By exposing WebHooks, your site can allow clients to extend its functionality without compromising security. WebHooks are already exposed by many services including GitHub, Instagram, PayPal, Slack, and Trello.

WebHooks are used extensively in the Azure ecosystem. In particular, Azure Functions provide a fast, easy way to use WebHooks without provisioning a server.

In this session, Anthony will show you how to consume existing WebHooks in your applications as well as how to publish WebHooks from your custom applications to enable richer integrations. We'll see examples using both ASP.NET and Azure Functions.

Anthony Clayton is an Enterprise Architect at Bennett Adelson and a former .NET development expert with Microsoft Consulting.

The Cleveland Azure Special Interest Group (Azure SIG) (formerly the Cleveland .NET SIG) was founded in a partnership between Bennett Adelson and Microsoft 20 years ago. The SIG has become the forum for Azure collaboration and instruction from some of the brightest minds in the region. The organization was founded to provide enterprise customers and community with educational support on the Azure cloud platform. The group meetings consist of architecture and implementation focused, content-rich presentations and interactive discussions with demos. The audience ranges from Azure experts to those decision makers, infrastructure engineers, and developers that are getting their first glimpse of the cloud.
