Description

Previous incarnations of Azure Functions used C# script files. With the latest release, you can develop Azure Functions that use standard C# class files. This means you can use all your prior .NET knowledge to easily create Azure Functions whilst utilizing the powerful development environment that is Visual Studio. In this course, Writing and Testing Precompiled Azure Functions in Visual Studio 2017, you will learn how to set up your local development environment to develop and test Azure Functions locally. You will then learn how to create Azure Functions that are triggered from incoming HTTP requests. In addition, you will learn about integrating with Azure Storage queues and blobs, Azure Service Bus, and Azure Event Hubs. By the end of this course, you will be able to create an Azure Functions project from scratch in Visual Studio, write and debug functions locally, create unit tests, and publish your finished Azure Functions App to the cloud.
