Presentation: Deploy to the Cloud in minutes with Azure Static Web Apps

Description:
You spend all your time on building that SPA application, it does what it’s supposed to and it even looks good, now to deploying it so someone else can use it. Cloud is a almost default nowadays as a platform for your code to live on. It offers scalability and some peace of mind. Back to deploying, I bet you see this being a slow painful process. With Azures new Azure Static Web Service, we are talking <5 minutes from your computer to the Cloud. All you need is your GitHub where your code lives. In this session I will cover the different things this service can do for you but also show how easy it is to deploy.
