The following is all of the blog posts and articles I have written and are catageorized as Queues

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.
