Discord Bot Part 4 - Using Event Grid

So far with our Discord bot we have our main parts together and running pretty simply. Any messages that come through will save to a table storage account where we can do some extra processing or keeping a log of what is going on. This runs pretty well but lets clean up our architecture and pipelines and make something a little be more scalable and interesting. First, let’s revisit what our architecture looks like:

Basic Filtering in the Bot

After being busy with a lot of other side work, and the whole craziness going on with the current pandemic, I have finally gotten some time to work on my Discord Bot. The whole point of this bot is to use an Event based architecture to build out a workable, usable bot. And if I can sneak a bit of machine learning, cloud monitoring, ARM templates, session management and any other interesting thing I can justify playing with :-).

Discord Bot Part 3 - Using Azure Table Storage

In my previous post we modified our Discord bot to take messages generated in chat, put them on a queue and processed them using an Azure Function. In this post we are going to modify the function that reads the message to place the message in an additional storage queue. An additional Azure Function will monitor this queue and write the message to table storage. Thankfully we have our core worker in place, this post, and future posts, should be a little bit shorter as we are now making incremental changes and improvements.

Discord Bot Part 2 - Using Azure Storage Queues and Service Bus

In my previous post we created a basic Discord bot that could listen to events from a Discord server. Up next we are going to start taking those events and moving them into a Storage Queue so they can be processed by an Azure Function. We are also going to get the bot to listen to a Service Bus Queue so it can pick up a message and deliver it back to the Discord Server.

Discord Bot Part 1 - Designing the Bot and creating the event proxy

Building services using a microservices architecture offers a number of benefits, especially when combined with the serverless options cloud providers can offer. This combination allows you to build a variety of small services, that cost very little, but can scale up with minimal to no additional effort and handle burst scaling really well. Over the next few posts I am going to go through designing and building a microservices application using a variety of services within Azure.
