Think serverless is just for functions? Think again! In this episode of Azure Friday, Brendan Burns joins Donovan Brown to look at how serverless containers can provide a cloud-native container experience without the worry of a server or operating system. They also look at how this integrates with the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
Earlier this week I noticed that Microsoft launched the Azure Apps Demo Map website, a centralized way to see a some awesome resources available by Microsoft for building enterprise applications that leverage Azure technologies..
Most of the scenarios include an interactive user experience to explore the solution – including solution diagrams, live demos, source code and additional resources.
When exploring a scenario you can click on sections to see what technologies were used for that particular application. In the case of the Rewards application, it uses Azure Functions, Logic Apps, and App Service.
After exploring the interactive model you can head over to the GitHub project to download and run the code so that you can dig really deep in how the solution was built.
Let’s take a brief look at each of the projects.
Currently the Azure Apps Demo Map contains four applications as listed below.
Tailwind Traders is a fictitious retail company showcasing the future of intelligent application experiences. These reference apps are all powered by the Azure cloud, built with best-in-class tools, and made smarter through data and AI.

This is a great resource to learn how Azure can be used for an end to end solution for your business.
They have a feedback link so if you found the resource useful or you have suggestions please let them know. It would be cool to see this resource be expanded to include other applications that include Power BI, Power Apps, Azure DevOps, Dynamics, etc.
In this episode of the Cloud Native Show, Shayne Boyer sits down Steve Lasker to discuss about registries and more specifically Azure Container Registry and the practices around using them for your applications.
