Overview of this book

Microsoft provides a solution to easily run small segment of code in the Cloud with Azure Functions. Azure Functions provides solutions for processing data, integrating systems, and building simple APIs and microservices. The book starts with intermediate-level recipes on serverless computing along with some use cases on benefits and key features of Azure Functions. Then, we’ll deep dive into the core aspects of Azure Functions such as the services it provides, how you can develop and write Azure functions, and how to monitor and troubleshoot them. Moving on, you’ll get practical recipes on integrating DevOps with Azure functions, and providing continuous integration and continous deployment with Visual Studio Team Services. It also provides hands-on steps and tutorials based on real-world serverless use cases, to guide you through configuring and setting up your serverless environments with ease. Finally, you’ll see how to manage Azure functions, providing enterprise-level security and compliance to your serverless code architecture. By the end of this book, you will have all the skills required to work with serverless code architecture, providing continuous delivery to your users.

Creating a common code repository for better manageability within a function app

In all our previous chapters, we wrote all the code in the run function. I did that to make everything simple and focus more on conceptual stuff related to Azure Functions instead of code architecture and all. Now, it's time to discuss the features that Azure Functions provide related to code architecture and re-usability. Most of the recipes covered in this chapter talk about them.

In our RegisterUser function, we could refactor the code into multiple classes and functions. However, we will not focus on refactoring all the code, but we will just pull out the code related to sending the emails.

In your application, make sure you use the architectural design principles and practices based on your requirements.

Let's start refactoring the code.
