Azure Functions enables you to write serverless code to handle events at scale, with minimal overhead and cost.
In this course, Azure Functions Fundamentals, you'll learn what Azure Functions is intended for, why you might want to use it, and you're going to see loads of demos of how simple it is to create your own functions.
In this intermediate level Azure Functions course you will learn:
Next, you'll use many different triggers and binding types supported by Azure functions including monitoring queues.
Then, you'll explore how to work with blob storage, sending emails, and how to develop in Visual Studio or from the command line with a text editor, if you prefer.
Finally, you'll discover how to automate deployments, as well as how to debug and monitor our functions.
By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create, deploy, and manage your own Azure Functions applications!
