In this talk I will go through using Microsoft Azure serverless and container technologies to automate a repetitive web interaction for minimal cost. I will demonstrate selenium using the page object model to interact with my target system, code execution using Azure functions and an Azure container Instance as a sidecar to run a browser. I'll demonstrate the development environment for azure functions as well as how to avoid using an expensive VM by using a container brought online only for the time it was needed instead. In this talk I will talk briefly about:

But mostly how the above fits together to make a great developer experience and deliver a solution at minimal cost.
