Microsoft’s Azure Event Grid offers ‘first-class’ event

For developers to build event-based applications, Microsoft has announced its Azure Event Grid.

The new Azure line-up product is designed to make picture and video uploads, database updates and button clicking “first-class” objects.

Developers will be able to use Event Grid to filter and route events to endpoints without the worry of infrastructure.

Microsoft director at Azure, Corey Sanders, said to Tech Crunch: “The goal here is to offer a first-class event object that customers can manage and manipulate.”

Event Grid also complements Azure Logic Apps, Azure Functions, and Microsoft’s existing serverless offerings.
