What Are You Struggling With?

Posted by

The end of the year is creeping up on us again. As such, I’ve been putting some thought into what I’d like to write about for the coming year.

I’ve been heavily focused on the topic of serverless as it applies to .NET, and more specifically Azure Functions, as of late. As such, I’m only a few posts away from being able to structure the last year’s worth of posts into a more linear “Getting Started” guide to serverless and Azure Functions.

And that’s where I’d love to get input from you. I want to make the guide as useful as possible. But I can’t do that without knowing what you’re struggling with when it comes to serverless and working with Azure Functions.

  • What’s the #1 question you have about Functions?
  • What do you struggle with the most when using Functions?
  • What type of documentation are you looking for that you can’t find?
  • If you’re not using Functions today, what’s preventing you from doing so?

The goal of the guide is to act as primer for the use cases, concepts, terminology, and tooling you’ll need to familiarize yourself with to build a successful serverless project. It won’t be a cookbook or step-by-step guide, but rather a guide that gives an experienced developer the knowledge he needs to hit the ground running.

I’m also working on a second guide that goes more in-depth than the first. It would explore things like language guidance, repository structure, code re-use, functional testing, deployments, and monitoring. In other words, many of the things that aren’t typically addressed by the official documentation.

Do either of these guides sound appealing to you? What would make it more interesting? Please leave any thoughts, ideas, and comments below. You can also DM me on Twitter, or reach out on LinkedIn. All input is welcome.

Finally, I’d like to thank you for continuing to read this blog. There is a ton of amazing content out there, so thanks for checking out what I’m up to!
