ASP.NET Webhooks and Azure Functions
Presented by Anthony Clayton

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.
