Learning Azure Functions

By: Mitesh Soni, Manisha Yadav

Overview of this book

Functions help you easily run small pieces of code in cloud with Azure functions without worrying about a whole application or the infrastructure to run it. With Azure functions, you can use triggers to execute your code and bindings to simplify the input and output of your code. This book will start with the basics of Azure Functions. You will learn the steps to set up the environment and the tools that we will be using in the further chapters. Once you have a better understanding of this, we will be creating our first hello world function app. Later you will be introduced to triggers, how they are used to activate a function, and how binding can be used to output results of a function.You will also explore the steps to create an assembly with complex functionality that can be used by functions. Next, this book will teach you to scale your functions and use them to process data, integrate systems, and build simple APIs and microservices. Finally, this book will cover some diagnostic techniques with Azure App services and best practices of working with Azure Functions. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with the techniques of scaling your Azure functions and making the most of serverless architecture.

Outlining a project

Let's start with the project's outline. We are going to create a User Detail Portal.

This portal will be used by the client for their users, who can enter their details, which will be stored in the database.

Once the data is stored in the database, the client can use that data anytime in the future.

The detailed process is where we will create one form for the user, which will take the ID, name, age, and address as parameters and save all the data in the database.

To create this, we first need to create APIs using the HTTP trigger of the Azure Function. After that, we will create a form using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
