Indexing and searching NuGet.org with Azure Functions and Search

Which NuGet package was that type in again? In this session, let's build a "reverse package search" that helps to find the correct NuGet package based on a public type name.

Together, we will create a highly-scalable serverless search engine using Azure Functions and Azure Search that performs 3 tasks: listening for new packages on NuGet.org (using a custom binding), indexing packages in a distributed way, and exposing an API that accepts queries and gives our clients the best result. Expect code, insights into the service design process, and more!
