Date: 23 Nov 2021
Location: Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium
Event name: DevDay
Duration: 60 minutes


Using Azure, it is easier than ever to build event-driven web applications, for example using Azure Functions and the Azure SignalR service. Laurent Bugnion, a Cloud Advocate for Microsoft will show you how he implemented such a solution to solve a real-world problem. This presentation will dive into a production application called Timekeeper, that Microsoft uses to run some of its live TV shows such as the Hello World daily show.
