Talk:Creating a workflow orchestration engine based on Azure Durable Functions - was it worth it?
In one of my projects the need appeared to create a workflow orchestration engine. From the functional side of it, the requirements were simple: we needed to be able to orchestrate the chain of actions, some of which might have been sequential, but some might have run in parallel. From the non-functional requirements side, there were the following things: the engine needed to be lightweight, able to run in the cloud and on-premise effectively, not be vendor-locked, be easy to learn and extend.
Well, because our project was already using a lot of Azure Functions, we decided to give Azure Durable Functions a shot. But was it worth it?
